Publisher's Summary

Jack Miller has more than he could ask for with Andrew as his boyfriend, but it's being taken away from him and there isn't anything he can do. His father knows he's gay, and his mother wants him to have sex with a girl to make sure he's not mistaken. Andrew Collins has found the perfect home in foster care with Cole and Melinda Kemp, but it won't last. The DA thinks his parents have proven they've changed, but Andrew doesn't believe the change will last. Just when Jack and Andrew think it can't get any worse, it does.

Jack's father sends him to New Life Christian Camp, a program that promises to pray the gay away. But Andrew has it worse, as his father takes out his anger on him, leaving him near death. Both Jack and Andrew are lost to each other, their lives in tatters all because their parents wanted to pray the gay away.

    Story
    "Excellent narrator, incomplete story."

    I love the narrator. Jason Frazier can narrate a phone book and I'd listen to it. He reads with such passion, and gives each character a unique voice when there are multiple characters in a scene so you always know who's speaking. He honestly made this story far more engaging than it otherwise would have been. This is not the kind of book I would probably finish if I'd bought the ebook or paperback edition. It's just unrelenting angst and so much suffering. The 'villains' in this story are almost caricatures. But then, watch or read the news, and people like them actually exist in real life. I think that's part of the reason this story is hard for me. I find real life terrible enough as it is, which is why I prefer stories that offer an escape from the horribleness of reality. You won't get that here.
    If you're also the type who needs closure, at the end of this audiobook, there is definitely a big, honking TO BE CONTINUED that goes unspoken so be prepared in case you think Jack and Andrew finally get their happily ever after.
    I hope Jason Frazier narrates the next one if there is another one (which will hopefully be the last). I also hope Jason narrates more audiobooks because he's in my auto-buy list at this point. One of the best narrators I've ever listened to since joining Audible.

    "Better than the first, Darker as well."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Sending Jack off to Jesus to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read it only listened so I can't say one way or the other.


    What other book might you compare Sending Jack off to Jesus to and why?

    Choices by Jamie Mayfield. They both deal with similar situations and content.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Can't say, that would be a spoiler.


    If you could rename Sending Jack off to Jesus, what would you call it?

    Why do you want to re-name it? It's perfect the way it is.


    Any additional comments?

    Oddly, this is my favorite book of the 3 thus far. It's disturbing and dark in some places but the strength of character that both Jack and Andrew possess while separated was astonishing considering their age and the dark place they are both in emotionally. While Andrew thinks he finally found some peace with his foster parents, his birth parents manage to convince the judge they've changed, and Andrew pays dearly for the justice systems stupidity. And poor Jack, shipped off to one of those horrid camps where their motto is "we can fix you" well, there wasn't anything wrong with him so all they do is fracture the teenagers psyche, not to mention he has to fend off the advances of one of the employees, a male employee, and they want to try and fix Jack???

    Worlds apart, feeling trapped, depressed and utterly alone, both young men hit rock bottom and for a little while at least, it seems like all hope is lost. But like I said, these two young men still have just enough strength left to try and find their way back to each other. The road they have to travel is paved with hatred and ignorance though. Thankfully, one of the adults in their lives finally decides to act like one.

    I think what is most appealing to me about this series is the severity and the reality of it. Not to sound like a broken record, but it's a deeply emotional, dark storyline. What these young men go through just because they fell in love with each other is... well, it's horrifying to be honest. But York has this way of just grabbing you and I was so immersed in their story that I felt like I knew them personally. Which only made their pain that much more real to me. As usual though, there is that glimmer of hope in the end that some how, some way, everything will be alright.

    Jason Frazier continues to carry the torch as the narrator and let me just say, his best work yet. I was a kind of amazed with his ability to convey the scared, unsure and broken down tone of Andrew and Jack, and yet give them each a different tone so you always knew which character you were with. And then he could flip the switch and become a spawn of satan (Andrew or Jacks sperm donors, take your pick) quickly. The transition from one voice to another, then another, and often several in one scene was flawless.

    Definitely a must listen series, or a must read, either way you want to go. But listening to Frazier bring the words York wrote to life, these characters that I'm certain took a lot of her blood, sweat and tears, well that is part of the beauty of this series in my opinion.

    "Good teen romance and family drama"
    Would you listen to Sending Jack off to Jesus again? Why?

    Probably not - it's not complex

    none in particular, but like the previous book it just suddenly stops and you feel it is unfinished. But the next book has not yet been released in audio


    Which character – as performed by Jason Frazier – was your favorite?

    Jack


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    many


    Any additional comments?

    As good as the first book, but it would be great if all three were available in one

    "Love, love, love!"

    I liked the second book, i love jack and andrew :) Jason Frazier is a good narrator, he is one of my new favorites. During the sexual type scenes he sounds like he gets into it, sometimes it makes me laugh. If you liked "Pray the gay away" you should like this one too. Ok i'm ready for the third book :)

    Story
    "Another thought provoking emotional journey."

    I didn't think Sara York could improve on the first book, but she outdid herself with this one. The start of the book has some great moments and funny parts, but the second half delves into a darker world of parents thinking try can literally beat the gay out of someone. While the book is light hearted at times, it definitely drives home a point regarding intolerance and unacceptance that still exists in today's society. I cannot wait to find out how this story unfolds in the next book.

    The narrator, Jason Frazier, hits it out of the park once again. His vocal presence adds a deep, human touch to the story, which only helps to drive the story's messages home. His ability to switch between characters while adding a layer of depth to their actions is incomparable and creates an experience you will not soon forget. After listening to most of his audiobook narrations, I am still amazed every time and listen in awe at his talent.
