When Luke's parents take in a foster kid named Randall, Luke is immediately taken with him, although he doesn't want to admit to himself why. He wasn't planning to be gay. He wasn't planning to fall in love with another boy. But then he met Ran....
I remember when I first met Ran. He was absolutely unprepossessing, all skinny white boy wearing his insecurities on his sleeves, which were tattered and faded on a too-big flannel shirt. He wore jeans that didn't quite fit him, cheap tennis shoes that had once been white, and glasses that made his eyes look too big in his scrawny, pale face.
And he was holding a trash bag and standing in the middle of my bedroom looking miserable...
This book was captivating. The story, the characters, everything drew me in and didn't want to let me go. I couldn't put it down. There were a couple times where I found myself laughing out loud about something that happened in the story.
I did have issues with the editing. It needs work. There were uses of a word that didn't fit with the sentence it belonged in. Then, there were sometimes things were just too convenient for the story. I feel it could have been drawn out a bit more, detailed a little more refined, and it would have made an excellent read.
All and all, I give this book 3 out of 5 platypires. It was a good read and I very much enjoyed it. Perfect story for a quick read with just enough pulls on the heart strings and a perfect ending.
