''Troubled gay teen'' fiction...the best of.
Son of Nietzsche "Refuse identification"
"An all-time favourite. Contemporary, sensual; the confusion and emotions faced by this 15 year old in Hawaii just leap off the page. A must-read."
The World of Normal Boys
"Coming-of-age in 1970s America. Intense and erotic portrayal of a 13 year old's sexual awakening and his attempt to find a place among the world of 'normal' boys."
"A young Kurdish teen realises he is gay, and has to deal with falling in love with his best friend, as well as being raped by his older brother. Totally enthralling and erotic. Read it."
Boy Meets Boy
"Refreshing and unique take on the world of gay teens, where being gay is not an issue and the high school quarterback is a drag queen."
A Son Called Gabriel
"Moving Irish novel dealing intelligently with the torments of gay youth from the age of 6 through to late teens."
The Boys on the Rock (Stonewall Inn Editions)
"Fresh coming-of-age novel with strong characters; Billy is a 16 year old high school student who begins to face his hitherto unspoken desires."
Brothers. Life, death, truth (Collins Flamingo)
"Highly emotive work by a Dutch author about a 16 year old communicating with his dead younger brother, and in doing so coming to terms with sexuality and death."
The Tragedy of Miss Geneva Flowers
"An outstanding debut by Joe Babcock. A 16 year old dabbles in drugs, sex and drag - for more info, see my Amazon Review."
The Boys and the Bees
"Joe Babcock's second - and very different - novel, pleasingly unafraid to acknowledge the burgeoning sexuality of a contemporary 11 year old boy."
In Tall Cotton
"Ignore the appalling cover; an absolute gem of a book charting the coming-of-age of a pubescent 'trailer trash' boy during the '30s Depression."
"A unique voice. Compelling perspective of a 14 year old deaf and dumb punk. Absorbing and brilliant."
What We Do Is Secret
"Kief Hillsbery's second. Another remarkable and unmissable look at a young teenage punk and hustler in Hollywood - for more detail, see my Review."
A Summer's Exile
"Incredibly moving work. Set in the American corn belt, the intense relationship between two 12 year olds will have you sobbing your cynical heart out."
"Emotive and well-written novel by R L Donaghe about the visit of an uncle which forces a rural 14 year old to face his sexuality."
"Donaghe again, portraying conflict in New Mexico in the 1960s, as two teens come out to themselves and their small farming community. Heart-warming read."
Leave Myself Behind
"An absolute must read. 17 year old Noah and his mother move into a small town and begin to unravel secrets about themselves and their neighbours."
Execution, Texas: 1987 (Stonewall Inn Editions)
"Set in the 1980s, this is a coming of age novel with an existential thread. Fresh, believable characters."
"An Australian novel concerned with the coming-out of a 15 year old and the trauma of unrequited first love."
The Big Book of Misunderstanding
"A highly intelligent and captivating work about the awkwardness and self-discovery of childhood amidst the pressures of family life."
Ambidextrous: The Secret Lives of Children
"Picano's classic work honestly addressing the sexuality of young children."
A Boy's Own Story (Picador Books)
"Classic work by Edmund White about a boy growing up in 1950s America. Narrator is not particularly likeable, but that makes for a more authentic read."
"An easy to read, erotic tale about the coming out of two teen boys in California - for more, see my Review."
"An 'it's okay to be gay' Alex Sanchez novel for young adults about the fear of growing up gay in high school. The whole 'Rainbow' trilogy is worth reading."
"Honest, easy read about a 16 year old 'behind enemy lines' in high school (the locker-room). The sequel, 'Order of the Poison Oak' is also a good read and more confidently sexual."
"Not strictly a 'troubled' teen, but this refreshing novel about a sixth form pupil in a London school is the funniest book you'll read in a long time."
