About Jay Bell

Jay Bell led a quiet life in Kansas until the day he met a handsome foreign exchange student named Andreas who swept him off his feet and carried him all the way to Germany. Much to their delight, marriage awaited them when they got there. While living so distant from friends and family, Jay began writing in an effort to reconcile the mixture of devotion and alienation he felt. This resulted in a Lambda Literary Award and a film option for his best-selling novel Something Like Summer. Jay and Andreas have since relocated to Chicago where their adventures continue, as do those of the characters in their emotionally driven Something Like… series. Jay pens the stories and Andreas provides the cover art, making them books about love, forged by love.

Thisis an awesome book I can't help but to feel related to, a cherishable work of art that takes you to a world where, as the plot unfolds, can touch your heart in more than two ways, with Connor and David I've found a story full of surprises, the bravery they show is great; I've laughed out loud, cried, and sat on the edge of my seat, Jay Bell is an amazing author, and very kind as well, I recommend all his books,

Review by: Stephen Christopher on March 19, 2012 :
Jay Bell is one of the finest authors of modern gay fiction. Kamikaze Boys features his two best characters to date Connor and David.
This coming-of-age and coming-out story is set in a Kansas high school. Two loners are drawn together and realise they share the same thing, they are both gay. They embark on a relationship that causes a lot of grief for those around them. They need to overcome some major hurdles if they want to be together.
The book covers common issues like bullying, homophobia, and questionable parenting.
Despite it's teen setting this novel is able to be enjoyed by readers of all ages.
You'll find it page turning and will be very hard to put down once you've begun.
This is a must read for anyone who has ever been in love, or would like to be in love.
5/5 Mr Bell, can't wait for your next one.
