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.
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.
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.
