This installment is excellent, shows growth in the characters and the relationship, in so many ways. Gilli's growing pains are excruciating, to him, his Daddies, and his readers. The Daddies cope as best they can, with a boy in denial, a tanking economy, recalcitrant family members, death and taxes. All the inevitables in life.
Mr. Brown posted in his online diary that this book might be his last. Dear author please no, don't do that, don't let "post-project blues" cheat your loyal readers from the unparalleled experience of your diary entries turned books. Take a page from Dick's book and just have crazy sex 24/7 to get the blues out of your system. After all, you do have two Daddies who are extremely susceptible to your charms. Then embark into the next one. There's a whole bunch of people wanting to know how 2009 went for you, particularly about Dick's Christmas gift to Shane and the Christmas cake thing, among other things.
I learned a couple of things while reading this book: a) Gilli just turns my "Mom" button "on", I'd just succumb to all his ploys and tantrums. If I had anything to do with him, he'd be spoiled beyond rescue. And b) I vehemently envy his neighbor Eileen, for the ease with which he goes over to visit. He does muse that his relationship with Eileen is almost that of mother and son, bearing out my first point above.
Ooooh, one other thing I suspected and confirmed in this book: Leo is absolutely salivating at the thought of getting his hands on Gilli, permanently. And Jak is just plain jealous, is all.
If you haven't read the previous installments, much of what goes on in this story may not make sense. Don't fret, though, the whole series is worth reading, I assure you. Enjoy!
I do hope that you will continue to write Anunal 2010-The Houseboy's Annus Horribilis
and 2009 memior's
HUGS To all 2 of you...
