This Story Is Flirty

Publisher's Summary

Not every gay teen yearns for fashion and popular culture. Some boys are pure country folk and like the feel of flannel and the smell of the farm. And they're neither lithe nor muscle-bound but stocky boys, the ones who develop hairy chests, arms, and faces years earlier than their peers.

One such seventeen-year-old is Travis Ferrell, shy among most of the other kids at school, but proud of his West Virginia roots. He has not yet admitted his passion for handsome guys - and his idea of what handsome is and what handsome does is not much different from him. Soon he'll learn that he's not unique; gay culture has a name for young men like him. Cubs.

Lambda Literary Award-winning author Jeff Mann has written a touching romance for the outsider in us all.

Amazing book!

I’ve have this book in my queue for a few weeks. Now I wish I had listened to it sooner because it was a beautiful, lovely story. Through the course of a school year and summer, this book gave rich details about the coming out process for the main protagonist, and his burgeoning relationship with another young man. I enjoyed very much the dialogue, which was enhanced by the narrator, Geoff Mooney. Geoff did an incredible job bringing Jeff’s characters to life. By the end of the book, I felt like I knew these individuals, their environment, their experiences. I felt like I traveled with them and had a privileged seat watching their love unfold. They story was filled both with euphoria and heart-break. I found myself smiling and then crying at times. In fact, three quarters into the novel, I was afraid of a devastating “twist”. I so hope there will be more about what happens to them in future books. I think I’ve discovered a new great writer - look forward to reading the next books - and a new narrator. One of the best books I’ve read (experienced) in recent times. GREAT!

It's good

Great story, feels real and natural. Good dialog and sincerely narrated, I hope we hear more about the main characters. Jeff Manns writing is consistently good.

Missing important parts of book...be aware!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I was enjoying the book...and then it just skipped almost a whole chapter...missing important dialogue. Please fix. I had to go get the actual book to read that chapter.

Bad production

Any additional comments?

This is a great story. The narrator is ok. But the production is very bad! Vital parts of the story are cut out. There are background noises like people talking, air planes and machine sounds.

For instance; the end of part 7 (chapter 6) is just cut before it's finished. Several places there are odd pauses. Simply a production with errors.
