Overview

Fan Art by Sarah Tregay, Melissa DeJesus

A sweet contemporary romance about a boy who falls in love with his best friend and the girls who help them get together.

Jamie Peterson has a problem: Even though he tries to keep his feelings to himself, everyone seems to know how he feels about Mason, and the girls in his art class are determined to help them get together. Telling the truth could ruin Jamie and Mason’s friendship, but it could also mean a chance at happiness. Falling in love is easy, except when it’s not, and Jamie must decide if coming clean to Mason is worth facing his worst fear.

In Fan Art, Sarah Tregay, the author of the romantic Love and Leftovers, explores the joys and pains of friendship, of pressing boundaries, and how facing our fears can sometimes lead us to what we want most. Fan Art is perfect for fans of contemporary romances as well as novels like Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan and Openly Straight by Bill Konigsberg.

A lighthearted tale of coming out and falling in love. Jamie is a senior in high school and he's fallen for his best friend. The same kid he's known forever. He vows to keep their relationship strictly platonic, no fangirling, no fawning over his tanned body, no nothing, and he fails epically. No matter how hard he tries he just can't give over the crush, and the girls in his art class aren't helping. Everything's threatening to spill over and he's about to yanked out of the closet. Fan Art is an exploration of high school life, friendships and most of all self discovery. Jamie is no more sure of his future then he is of this thing that's happening inside of him towards his best friend. I think what I liked most about Fan Art was how close it stayed to reality. The picture the author painted seemed pretty realistic down to the very last page. It's a lighthearted read even though it deals with heavy issues. All of the characters are relative and easy to like, even when they act like silly teenagers. There were times I wanted to knock some sense into Jamie but it all came full circle by the end. It even left me feeling sort of gooey in a good way. I'd recommend it to anyone who's looking to find him or herself and wouldn't mind a little romance on the way.

I never wanted the book to end. There were massive amounts of sexual tension, until the end which drove me insane, but it was a pleasant insanity. Jamie was a very likeable character who said pretty relatable things. Mason seemed a bit oblivious throughout though. But in the end, 10/10. One of the best books I've read in a while, definitely one of the FIRST books I've read and been satisfied with the ending.

    I wanted to read this one because it sounded like a perfect discovering yourself story. The idea of having a crush on your best friend is such a universal concept, and I have read about it and enjoyed it but never with a gay guy crushing on seemingly straight best friend. I have read it both ways, where it turns into a romance or where another love interest was introduced and I was wondering where this story would take it.      Jaime and Mason as best friends worked so well. They are comfortable with each other, go to school together, and have been friends and part of each other's lives for quite some time.      Another aspect that I enjoyed was the family togetherness from Jaime. He is so sweet and patient with his younger twin sisters, and is thoughtful of his mom. He helps with the girls, and he also has an open and honest relationship with her. He came out to her and she luckily was very accepting and she gets to the point of bordering on annoying how in tune she wants to be about Jaime's love life.     The art class, where his friends there are fun to read about. The girls seem to know about his preference and try to help him out and set him up. He ends up asking one to the prom and they have an interesting time because she is a lesbian but her parents aren't supportive so they put on quite the show.      The magazine, his friendship and cover up with Eden, the prom and senior pranks all make this story even more real and full. It has characters who are openly gay, supportive and then the complete opposite and against homosexuals. But it is more open than my high school was, but that was also years ago that I was in school.         I kept going back and forth if Mason knew anything about how Jamie felt or if he was completely oblivious and I think that totally added to the suspense and build up of the story. The ending worked wonderfully because of this as well. It was hard to read at times, but so glad that I got to see Jamie begin to accept himself and trying to be okay regardless of what Mason's orientation was. I could understand why he was so afraid to tell him, and I can't imagine what pressure was on his shoulders.         While it had a great message, in some ways to me it was a feel good read. It was quick, I liked the growth in Jamie and the build up, friendships and family relations both positive and negative all drove this character driven story. The pacing was great and it felt like I flew through it.       Bottom Line: Fast read that made me feel good.

Fan Art is a realistic fiction book about self-acceptance, coming out, and friendship. I chose this not because I personally am gay, but because  the dynamics and relationships between the characters were interesting and I have never read a gay fiction book. I think that reading all types of books expands one’s spectrum.  The setting is a regular high-school, nothing special except when the story deviates to a more country-like setting that’s a nice change. The main conflict in the story is Jamie, the main character in the story (told in first person) coming to terms to come out to his best friend, Mason. The secondary main conflict Jamie faces is standing up for the right thing, which means putting a controversial gay-comic in the award-winning school-magazine. The language isn’t complicated at all, however there are some “high level” vocabulary words in the book sprinkled sporadically that make it feel like the author put them in there for the sake of it. There are also various poems scattered throughout the book that represent some of the characters inner emotions and feelings, something that’s nice when we only get a glimpse into one characters head. The romance in the book was well written, there were subtle moments that were adorable that made you want to scream for the characters to get together already. You also got the feeling that Mason was gay very early on, something I didn’t like it because we all knew he was going to get with Jamie regardless of what Jamie thought, because it was the way the book was written. However, that being said, the supporting character Eden was also one of the best supporting characters I’ve seen. The end of the book was a bit rushed, and I found the consequences of tee-peeing (for lack of better words) Abraham Lincoln and doing other erroneous acts to him were little or nil, as the book said “he had to write essays in library.” If this were more realistic, he would’ve gotten kicked out of school. And the catalyst, or the ultimate fan-art Eden drew wasn’t so well planned out, as I don’t see how Jamie would be offended by a scrap-doodle drawing. All of that said, I did enjoy the middle parts very well and would recommend this book to any teen or maybe even young adult.

Twin World <br> Chapter one <br> Lunar Dream <p> Image yawned. She had finished helping with the setting of the sun for tonight and was going to sleep. She lifted her covers and put her main up, taking it down afterwards. "It's just sleeping; no need for something this fancy." <p> Flash Splash darted around outside, Party Puff and Cherry Burst watching her. <br> "Hey, Image, come on out! The sun is still bright." Flash Splash called. <br> "Yeah, silly!" Party Puff said, jumping in a mud-puddle and splashing it on everyone. <br> "Um... I have a very important compass to make." <br> "No you don't," Cherry Burst said. <br> "Well.. I just finished setting the sun!" <br> "It isn't set yet." <br> Just then, Butterfly came up to the group. "Come on Image, you could at least say hi." She said quietly, looking in Image's window. <br> Image sighed and trotted out. <br> "Somebody's grumpy." Scoffed Cherry to herself. <br> "What is it?" Butterfly asked. "It's ok, we're your freinds." <br> Flash Splash dived down suddenly, landing with a thud. <br> Image sighed. "I feel out of place. Compass making. I used to love it, but, now, it feels like it's the only thing I'll ever do again." <br> "It is," said Cherry. "It says so on your cutie mark." She said, pointing to the un-labeled compass rose on Imagine's flank. <br> "I know, but mabye there is a deeper meaning to a compass rose." <br> Party Puff splashed in another puddle. "Mabye you will travel across space and time and save all of alezitria!" <br> Everybody stared at her for a moment, then Charity sat down. <br> Cherry Burst yawned. "I doubt it, Party." She said. <br> The six freinds sat in silence, watching the last fragment of the sun slip under the horizon. <p> Image settled into bed, glad to finally get to sleep. <p> Everything was foggy. A group of ponies lay on the ground, shattered. They reminded Image of her freinds. But Cherry Burst's cutie mark was apples instead of cherries, and Party was pink with three balloons instead of one large one. These were not her pony pals. <br> "But... the elements!" The purple one said. "Why aren't they working?" <p> Suddenly, everything turned into fog. A dark blue allicorn with a moon cutie-mark flew in. "Image. I have traveled very far and had to climb through many dreams to reach you." <br> "An allicorn?! I thought they were only myths!" Image yelled, but it echoed queitly across the floor and seemingly endless walls. <br> "I am Luna, protector of dreams. I come to deliver a message. You and your freinds will wake up tommorow morning and you will have a very big surprise. Do not run, it is destiny. You must instead admit yourself. You may find yourself in a strange land, but you will know what to do when your time comes." <br> "But, wait, no! What am I supposed to do?" Image called after the allicorn as she flew away.
