    What a book!

    Josh Atervois's second book, out does his first by a long shot. By telling the story from a new character, a whole new story is told, but many past characters are brought in later, to add more drama. A book so hard to put down, much like his first, is a sure read for high schoolers and college students tring to find themselves, love and acceptance. You fall in love with the characters from the first time you are introduced, and that love stays true throughout the text. A rollarcoaster of a ride, brings readers to tears as the story comes to an end. I know I cried for many days afterwards, but I never found myself angry at what had happened. The book is played out very well, enough to make a reader want to read more, even though there is no where else to go at that time, and place. A good read, but make sure you have your tissues handy.

    A Cross Genre Mystery/Romance/Coming Out Story

    This rollercoaster ride of a book branches out from author Aterovis¿s 2002 debut novel, Bleeding Hearts. Like the main character in the earlier book, Reap The Whirlwind¿s Will Keegan is a teenager whose life is turned upside down when he discovers he is gay. He is in no way prepared for the upheaval in store for him. He comes to understand that the person he¿s been in love with is hatefully homophobic. His father turns from him. Someone dear to him dies in a mysterious drunken accident. Will nearly dies, too. If that¿s not enough stress for one person, he meets someone special and is hardly able to discern that the young man is perfect for him. ####### Once Will gets his life into a precarious balance, he is able to see that the death of his friend is no accident even though the police have ruled it so. He and several friends (including Killian Kendall from the earlier novel) launch an amateur investigation which has dreadful results. There¿s another murder, then another, and no way of determining why. Who will be next? ####### Aterovis does an admirable job of showing the wild confusion and frequently uncontrollable emotions of young people as they attempt to understand their lives and make their way into adulthood. This book, essentially a very serious story, has occasional flashes of humor. My favorite line: ¿Oh my God, Martha Stewart died and left us all her sh-t.¿ The interplay between the young men and women, both straight and gay, feels accurate and alive. Above all, the message is clear that love and acceptance of self and others is critical, especially for young adults. Highly recommended for readers from high school on up. ####### ~Lori L. Lake, Midwest Book Review
