Book Fairies with Pride kicks off with a great YA read about a long distance relationship 🙂
Only on the long Jubilee weekend do we hand out such a treat as Dean Atta’s book about long distance love! Who will be lucky enough to spot a special Pride book?
“I can hear them all
Cheering for us,
Proud of our achievement,
As if it were theirs.”
About the book:
“The only thing I knew when I was twelve
Was that I’m gay.”
Mack. Karim. Finlay. Mack never thought he’d find love, let alone with two people. Will he make the right choice? And can love last for ever? A must-read queer love story for fans of Sex Education, written in verse by Dean Atta.
Fifteen-year-old Mack is a hopeless romantic – he blames the films he’s grown up watching. He has liked Karim for as long as he can remember, and is ecstatic when Karim becomes his boyfriend – it feels like love.
But when Mack’s dad gets a job on a film in Scotland, Mack has to move, and soon hediscovers how painful love can be. It’s horrible being so far away from Karim, but the worst part is that Karim doesn’t make the effort to visit. Love shouldn’t be only on the weekends.
Then, when Mack meets actor Finlay on a film set, he experiences something powerful, a feeling like love at first sight. How long until he tells Karim – and when will his old life and new life collide?
“K looks so strong,
I can’t imagine what he would be afraid of.”
