Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

From the author of Something Like Summer...

True love is worth fighting for.

My name is Connor Williams and people say I'm crazy. But that's not who I am. They also think I'm straight, and mean, and dangerous. But that's not who I am. The stories people tell, all those legends which made me an outsider--they don't mean a thing. Only my mother and my younger brother matter to me. Funny then that I find myself wanting to stand up for someone else. David Henry, that kind-of-cute guy who keeps to himself, he's about to get his ass beat by a bunch of dudes bigger than him. I could look away, let him be one more causality of this cruel world... But that's not who I am.

Kamikaze Boys is a story of love triumphant as two young men walk a perilous path in the hopes of saving each other.

Biographie de l'auteur

Jay Bell never gave much thought to Germany until he met a handsome foreign exchange student. At that moment, beer and pretzels became the most important thing in the world. After moving to Germany and getting married, Jay found himself desperate to communicate the feelings of alienation, adventure, and love that surrounded this decision, and has been putting pen to paper ever since.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A romance dressed like a YA...and that's fine 21 février 2013
Par Ulysses Dietz - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
It's Connor and David against the world - and I suppose it's too "advanced" for teenagers to read, but it sure captures the way teenagers think and how they see the world. I'd let my teenagers read this. Of course, they'd never talk to me about it afterwards...

The jock and the nerd - a classic set up - but it doesn't play out the way you expect, because whether they get together or not is beside the point. Although the build-up is very nicely done, it's how they fight to stay a couple in the face of a world that either doesn't care or disapproves that drives the story. The fact that they're gay isn't the main point either - with one crucial exception, it's more their youth and supposed inexperience that causes their troubles.

I love YA-ish books where the parents are important players, and Jay Bell delivers here. I love it even more that the parents are allowed to surprise us (and their children).

For a romance, it's surprisingly unsentimental. There's plenty of teen anger in this - and that's just about right.

It's been interesting watching Jay Bell's writing career take off. I was first introduced to his work when Brent Hartinger reviewed his very first book "The Cat in the Cradle," and I've kept an eye on what he's been doing ever since. Bell has been most prolific, and I've enjoyed everything that he's written so far (whether it be fantasy or more realistic YA lit), to one degree or another.

"Something Like Summer" has been Jay's most popular book up to this point, but I think I actually prefer "Kamikaze Boys" over that one. Interesting, that this book covers many of the same themes as John Goode's "End of the Innocence" (which I had recently mentioned here), but it has a completely different feel... I found both Conner and David to be sympathetic and quite likable characters, but it's true enough that they make a couple of very poor choices throughout the course of the novel! Oh, the reader can completely relate to their actions, but the characters do end up paying the price for their behavior. (Though rest assured---I thought the ending was splendid.)

There's plenty of drama here to draw the reader into the story, and I think most of you would enjoy it. Recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A love against all odds - Jay Bell does it again! 12 mars 2012
Par splitz2008 - Publié sur

Jay Bell certainly wowed me with Something Like Summer, so when I heard he had written another romance novel I knew I had to have it. My only regret is not waiting to get the paperback so I could sit around in public with my pink (and clearly gay) book in hand. (Believe me, even if you're shy, after reading this book, you'll want to do the same!)

The storyline is not so heart-wrenching as Something Like Summer, but it certainly encompasses an understanding of love and romance that is unmatched in today's media. I couldn't help but hold my breath at parts, hoping that the two characters would come out okay in the end. I found myself falling in love with the characters and learning that their love should be replicated in the real world. It was refreshing to see that not only was this NOT a coming-out story, nor were the characters in any way ashamed of their sexuality, but that they used it to their advantage and would challenge anyone who stood in their way. Some parts are so cute you'll wish you could've come up with it yourself first! Then, of course there are some steamy parts that depict sex in the beautiful way that it should be. This story is sweet, moving, and just plain great and I fully recommend it to anyone who wants to experience the imaginative, beautiful romance that only Bell can come up with.

You will be inspired by the characters, Connor and David, to fight against all odds and apologize to no one.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 "David and Connor conquer America. Are you ready for this?" 10 mars 2012
Par BhamGhostwriter - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Okay. I know those who read book reviews hear this a lot but I REALLY did stay up until 4am this morning in order to finish KAMIKAZE BOYS. This wonderful love story was worth every lost minute of sleep.

Accomplished storyteller that he is, Jay Bell has taken many of the TIME-TESTED clichés of the coming of age/first love gay narrative: dysfunctional parents, middle-class school, self-loathing school bully, smooth-talking psychologist, adoring little brother, sassy big sister, nerdy best friend and - of course - our two heroes, the honor-roll loner David along with Connor, the intimidating older student with that mysterious scar on his face; Jay has taken these elements and totally "un-clichéd" them as he has woven them into a touching and truly realistic high school gay romance which begins early on in the novel when Connor unexpectedly rescues David from the school bully.

(Thankfully, Jay advances this love story WITHOUT any of the more recent and tiresome gay romance clichés about which I have complained in many a review: truncated, totally unrealistic pillow talk - "You! Bed! Now!" - being the most egregious of them).

KAMIKAZE BOYS isn't as deep nor as multi-layered as the author's earlier SOMETHING ABOUT SUMMER. And that's okay; frankly I was glad that I, in order to let my heart rate get back to normal, didn't have to momentarily put the book down quite so many times as I did with his previous novel.

Sure, there were some scary moments toward the end of the book when the two guys were forcibly separated from one another in seemingly cruel ways. But, unlike the main characters in a multi-volume gay boy melodrama I've been forced to slowly read in installments over the last two years, Connor and David kept their heads and - trusting their instincts - never really doubted each other while they were kept apart. Like all teens, they do some stupid things. But they don't continue doing the same stupid things over and over and over again. I liked that a lot.

This is NOT a "coming out" story. Both Connor and David are already "out" in varying degrees to family and to the very few friends they have. But it does show them both "coming of age" in a powerful and loving way as they team up to "fight" (sometimes literally) those who, for selfish reasons or otherwise, would force the boys to deny the very real feelings they have towards one another.

SOMETHING LIKE SUMMER made Jay Bell an important writer in this genré - KAMIKAZE BOYS will only add to his well deserved reputation.

And, wow! Another great cover from Jay Bell's "in house" artist, Andreas!

Let me just say that I read 'Something like Summer' and then promptly decided that this writer is not for me. But, If you are one of those readers who didn't enjoy that novel, give Jay Bell another chance because this one is much better.
It's a story about two outsiders; I will not give you the plot because other people will do that until you're both blue in the face. I will tell you that these characters are definitely unique. The story line might not be but the writer sells it with some skill. It's refreshing and seductive; it sucked me right in. I do have to say that the ending was a bit 'meh' but it won't take away from the story. The whole thing is a wast improvement.
