    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....

    "Worst Narration Ever"
    Overall

    This is an award winning book, but the narration is so bad I cannot even tell if the book is any good. Michael Urie's narration is worse than those pretentious British narrators who think they are part of the Royal Acting Company. I am gay, so I am not being homophobic when I say the narrator's constant lisping and gay queen voice has no place in the context of this story. Unbelievably bad. I hope the book can be redone with a real actor--someone who'll understand no high school jock talks like a drama queen.

    When Ethan gets Alek to cut school and go to a Rufus Wainwright concert in New York City’s Central Park, Alek embarks on his first adventure outside the confines of his suburban New Jersey existence. He can’t believe a guy this cool wants to be his friend. And before long, it seems like Ethan wants to be more than friends. Alek has never thought about having a boyfriend - he's barely ever had a girlfriend - but maybe it’s time to think again.

    What did you love best about One Man Guy?

    I loved this book and the narration is excellent. The story allows us to simply join the lives of two boys as they fall in love. The story line isn't too over the top and the gay kids are not forced by the author to face the worst that the world has to offer. Instead, it is a sweet story of love, family connections and facing our prejudices, not fleeing from them. This kind of story is a rare find---I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
