4.0 out of 5 stars Flawed but cute 30 Jun 2014
By Liviania - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Jamie is a senior in high school, and pretty popular due to being nice and reasonably good looking. He's in band, and art, and part of the student literary magazine - not the coolest activities, but he's made some great friends. His best friend of all is Mason, but there is some trouble in paradise. Namely, Jamie is in love with Mason, but afraid to come out because he can't handle losing his best friend. Jamie is also busy going out with his lesbian friend Eden to help her with her religious parents and trying to get a LGBTQ-themed comic into the literary magazine despite the editor's objections.

FAN ART is a cute contemporary that will appeal to fans of LGBTQ romance. Between each chapter are poems that various characters submit to the magazine, which reveal other parts of the story. I really enjoyed these interludes, although some felt too sophisticated for the characters supposedly writing them. The central comic is also pretty cute, although a bit oddly paced - Jamie's passion for it does seem a bit over the top even though it does speak to him personally.

I felt that FAN ART had some issues delivering the romance. Mason is much more of a cipher than Jamie, partially because his point of view is only briefly glimpsed and partly because Jamie avoids him for a great deal of the book. By the end, I found Mason's motives somewhat confusing. I was also put off by the fact that all of Jamie's friends 'ship' him with Mason. The book does make the point that such actions can have consequences when done with friends instead of fictional characters. It still felt so intrusive and made me wish Jamie told them off quickly instead of getting embarrassed that someone thought he was gay.

I liked FAN ART well enough. It's definitely a popcorn novel, but there's nothing wrong with that. I just had really high hopes for this one because I loved the literary magazine angle. I suspect FAN ART will find an appreciative audience despite its flaws.
5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! 24 Jun 2014
By Waiting For Wentworth - Published on Amazon.com

I loved this book so much that I don't even know what to talk about first. Have you ever read a book that was so enjoyable that you didn't want it to end? That's how I felt about Fan Art. It was such an ADORABLE story that was thoroughly entertaining.

I loved everything about Jamie. He was beyond cute and adorable, and just so confused. Jamie is gay and is out at home, but not at school, and definitely not to his best friend, Mason. Jamie had to hide the huge crush that he was developing on Mason because he was terrified what the truth will do to their friendship. Jamie was a little clueless and quite naive at times, and he really tried my patience more than once because I wanted him to have the confidence to admit how he was feeling. But I still found myself laughing and groaning and tearing up just a bit as Jamie struggled with coming out to Mason.

Jamie had the best parents ever! They were so supportive and encouraged him to be himself. His step father even threw him a coming out party! How cool and utterly awkward is that? And just wait until you read about how he acted around his 2 little sisters. The cuteness might just make you swoon! Jamie also had the best guy and girl friends that anyone could ask for. They were always ready to lend an ear and offer advice, even if Jamie wasn't ready to hear what they had to say. You could tell they really just wanted him to be happy. Of course, what would high school be without a bully? Jamie attracted the attention of one of the meanest homophobes in school who finds joy in going out of his way to make Jamie's life hell.

One aspect that I really liked was Jamie working on the school's literary magazine. Because he had a hand in choosing the content, we got to see the students' poems that were submitted, which I especially enjoyed. I also really liked the short story fan art that turned out to be so controversial and spurred Jamie into wanting to take action.

I thought the romance was so worth waiting for. Jamie and Mason had been friends for years. They were so comfortable with each other and it was nice to see how well they got along. I could never tell if Mason somehow knew Jamie's secret all along, so it kept me guessing as to how and when things would progress between them.

My goodness, the cuteness factor in this book is off the charts! I adored Jamie and Mason because they were SO easy to like. I loved the complexity of their relationship, and how the underlying tension between them made things so awkward at times. Their story was light and heartwarming, a bit cliché at times, but still very entertaining. I was satisfied with the way the story played out, and even though it was a bit predictable at times, I still loved every second of it! No doubt this book will leave you all warm and fuzzy inside with a big smile on your face. At least it did me!

This book is about love and the universality of all of the different aspects of wondering if you are in love. Is it real? Do I dare risk a great friendship by allowing myself to fall in love?

A terrific read, beautifully written, for all ages.

Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
When Jamie Peterson makes it to 12th grade without being kissed, he thinks that's okay. No one knows his secret except now one secret has become two. And his best friend Mason, who has no idea Jamie is gay, has suddenly become the one person Jamie is most interested in. So trying to keep all of this suppressed while dealing with final exams, making new -- real friends who have their own secrets messing with their emotional stability, participating in senior pranking, and fighting censorship in a way that could end up getting him suspended right before graduation... Jamie is a little stressed.

What he doesn't realize is that he is pretty easy to read and his new, his real friends adore him and have his back. They want him to succeed in his wooing of his soulmate.

High school students will recognize the sets of these scenes. School lockers, art club and class, anime club and favorite hangouts and home. Sarah Tregay creates a harmonious balance between teen angst and happy but realistic endings. And show reveals how sometimes growing up is harder than you realize and requires more daring than you can imagine but ultimately Fan Art shows off how sometimes it requires you to just be yourself first and foremost.
4.0 out of 5 stars Fast read that made me feel good. 21 Jun 2014

I wanted to read this one because it sounded like a perfect discovering yourself story. The idea of having a crush on your best friend is such a universal concept, and I have read about it and enjoyed it but never with a gay guy crushing on seemingly straight best friend. I have read it both ways, where it turns into a romance or where another love interest was introduced and I was wondering where this story would take it.

Jaime and Mason as best friends worked so well. They are comfortable with each other, go to school together, and have been friends and part of each other's lives for quite some time.

Another aspect that I enjoyed was the family togetherness from Jaime. He is so sweet and patient with his younger twin sisters, and is thoughtful of his mom. He helps with the girls, and he also has an open and honest relationship with her. He came out to her and she luckily was very accepting and she gets to the point of bordering on annoying how in tune she wants to be about Jaime's love life.

The art class, where his friends there are fun to read about. The girls seem to know about his preference and try to help him out and set him up. He ends up asking one to the prom and they have an interesting time because she is a lesbian but her parents aren't supportive so they put on quite the show.

The magazine, his friendship and cover up with Eden, the prom and senior pranks all make this story even more real and full. It has characters who are openly gay, supportive and then the complete opposite and against homosexuals. But it is more open than my high school was, but that was also years ago that I was in school.

I kept going back and forth if Mason knew anything about how Jamie felt or if he was completely oblivious and I think that totally added to the suspense and build up of the story. The ending worked wonderfully because of this as well. It was hard to read at times, but so glad that I got to see Jamie begin to accept himself and trying to be okay regardless of what Mason's orientation was. I could understand why he was so afraid to tell him, and I can't imagine what pressure was on his shoulders.

While it had a great message, in some ways to me it was a feel good read. It was quick, I liked the growth in Jamie and the build up, friendships and family relations both positive and negative all drove this character driven story. The pacing was great and it felt like I flew through it.

Bottom Line: Fast read that made me feel good.
