    i inhaled this sucker. dithering between beginning on the second volume in the series or stabbing out into something else by the author; safe to say i can't go wrong in either case. buy. this. book. it's a delight.

    Remarkable, Immediately engaging, this one effectively aroused me, amused me, and creeped me the fuck out. Outstanding.
  • Guttersnipe on Jan. 23, 2014

    this is an outrageously entertaining psychological thriller with enough sex, compassion, and common sense to make a boy wanna stand up and shout AMEN. relentlessly clever, with a finish like a demolition derby in the dark. outstanding.

    troubling, but excellent. sexton writes with a light touch here, and it's marvelous. critically important, also, as there are far too many opportunities for unpleasant implications, like in all the greatest of our culture's fairy tales. in this case, though, the dark side of the story was plain to see: everything that is everything wrong with being a gay boy in a straight boy's world. as such, i found myself triggered to fuck and back—weeping my guts out in the last half of it, while a stupid straight prince stupidly fails to figure out the stupid secret while his stupid gay beloved is standing right in front of his stupid face, stupidly. ...er. *crushingly awkward silence* um. sorry. where was i? oh: cinderfella. s'good. real good. and while it didn't turn out so hot for the ladybitch cousin, with whose own triggery tribulations nobody is expected to sympathize, you can rest assured that sexton delivers a happy ending for the rest o'youse as can't be made to cry over the memory of a friend to whom you could never have found a way to say "i love you."
