    I must say that of the 200 books I've read in the last year and a half this and its sequel are at the top of my all time favorites list. I don't know that a book has touched me the way these two did and they definitely opened my eyes to a real problem that's going on today. The way it's written is a very nice change from single perspective stories I've read. I love the character development  and storyline "Even if I ended up crying at different places throughout and especially at the end". I personally believe that anyone "Gay/Straight/BI" Could learn a very valuable lesson from this storyline.

    An unlikely couple

    Tales From Foster High switches perspective between the two main characters: Kyle and Brad. Without giving much away, I will just say that the characters behave differently from your traditional cookie-cutter coming-of-age gay fiction characters. I absolutely love how the two come together and the way their relationship plays out. The writing is witty and nicely paced. Overall, a very enjoyable read that I will revisit upon.

    Reviewed by Christina Marie at The Morning After Romance: I love this series!

    John Goode is my newest author obsession. Even though this series gave me terrifying flashbacks of high school, I loved getting lost in Foster High.

    Tales from Foster High is a compilation of the first three books in the series.

    This series is about growing up and falling in love. Kyle and Brad are amazing characters. Both are well developed, with unique and robust personalities. The books are occasionally sweet, and often angsty. They deal with serious issues like bullying, homophobia, alcoholism and abuse.

    I do recommend this series. It's great if you like character growth, an actual plot, and don't mind snark (Kyle has many snarkisms to offer).
