I reviewed virtually the same book, with a 5 star recommendation, on Amazon 7 or 8 years ago under its original title CODY which the author published under the name Keith Hale. While this present edition, published under the name Luke Hartwell, has had some editing (e.g., the main character is now named Mateo instead of Trotsky), it really is the same book (current book has about 208 pages compared to about 220 in the original). I think it's not quite right to promote books in this way - even great 5 star books like this one. $10 is just too much to pay for something I read 10-15 years ago (and still have the original book in my hard copy library - along with a slightly later edition under YET ANOTHER TITLE)! The author and/or his publisher apparently have had this problem come up at least once before, according to a commentary on these pages about Hartwell's recent volume of short stories (most of them renamed from their earlier published versions).
I think I would have caught the discrepancy here via the short "free preview" if the author had not changed his own name as well as the main character's name.
Don't get me wrong please. This is truly a wonderful (yet heart-breaking) gay Y/A book and if you've not read the original versions from years ago (titled CODY and/or something like CLICKING BEAT ON THE BRINK OF NADA by Keith Hale), then by all means purchase this book. It's a very emotional and moving story and extremely well written. Just be fore-warned.
