3 1/3 - 4 Stars

Justin struggles with his sexuality until he meets Lucas but even then he still has his fears, but with Lucas’s love he will find his way.

This is an extremely touching story from a young man’s POV as he handles the revelations of his sexuality, his first relationship and the ups and downs that they face as they progress down the path of being a couple. Justin has accepted that he is gay to the extent that as long as it is just him that knows then he can accept it, he also struggles with his religion and their views on homosexuality. When he meets Lucas he fears the reaction of those around him and he begins to feel isolated and depressed, Lucas is like a shining light who shows him a way through the darkness.

This story is from Justin’s POV so we have a lot of his thoughts and internal dialogue and I will be honest some of it threw me because of the way he sounded, he sounded a lot older than he was, the same with Lucas they are both around the ages of 18-20 but they sound more 40-45, they don’t sound like young men. The way that the story is written is very good, we capture the young Justin as he falls head over heels for Lucas, Lucas and his frustration with his work and Justin’s final acceptance of being gay.

The ending is bittersweet and you may shed a few tears, Justin’s and Lucas’s relationship has some stormy moments as Lucas’s passion and Justin’s apathy clashes, some romantic moments and sweet loving. So I will recommend this to those who want a coming of age, finding acceptance within ones-self, facing loss, facing bigotry and finding strength, while accepting your love will last forever story.

Review by: G Chantzy on March 15, 2012 :
In this wonderful story, Nathan has managed to wrap his beautiful words around several topics; coming of age, love, bigotry, acceptance, and loss.

His writing manages to pull you in, grab your emotions, and leave you wanting more.

Thoughts of, "I've been there," and "I've felt that," stayed with me throughout his story.

Do yourself a favor - give yourself a treat - and read this book.

wait ..., I have still to dry my tears from this wonderful reading ...
I admit it, I know Nathan over facebook and always appreciated his acumen and intelligence.
"Rainbows all around us" is a masterpiece.
Nathan has a rare gift to wrap emotions and concepts into beautiful words; he really can write!
The story is startlingly beautiful and moving. It is easy to identify with the characters, Nathan takes us by hand through the struggles of coming out to the fight for our rights. He has a special eye for our internal struggle and his advice and putting things into perspective is outrightly beautiful.
Do I recommend this book, ABSOLUTELY YES!
I loved it and so will you!

I really hope that this story one day will make it into a mandatory read for high schools throughout the World.
