    In the story comic book legend Stan Lee calls "spellbinding" and "totally original," Thom Creed has secrets. For one, like his father, he has super powers. Also, he's been asked to join the League—the very organization of superheroes that spurned his dad. Then there’s the secret Thom can barely face himself: he's gay. But becoming a member of the League opens up a new world to Thom. There, he connects with a misfit group of aspiring heroes, including Scarlett, Typhoid Larry, and Ruth, a wise old broad who can see the future. Like Thom, these heroes have things to hide....

    Overall

    This is a must read. It is not a "gay" book. It is a hero who happens to be gay.

Discovering a young Amish man asleep in his barn, Geoff learns that Eli is spending a year away from the community before accepting baptism into the church.

    This is a great book but it is kind of sad at times.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Love Means... No Shame?

    I can't tell you because it would give away the story.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Not try to make his voice sound like a woman's


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    almost made me cry


    Any additional comments?

    must read if you are gay and ever wanted to be in a loving relationship.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    Teddy says: "The Book Deserves The Hype"

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Hunger Games to be better than the print version?

    Loved it! However, this is the best of the 3. The other 2 books were not near as good.

    From syndicated humor columnist Marc Acito comes a wildly inventive and hysterically funny novel that is equal parts Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Fame, Risky Business, Dead Poets Society, and The Catcher in the Rye.

    Lee says: "Funny funny funny"
    "Good Book. A Must Read!"
    Overall

    Loved it. It suprised me. It wasn't your typical gay novel. I thought he would have paid for college in a different way.
