1) For this novel to be Ms. Jendi's first I found it super fantastic. The topic in question is one that, as many say, it's not an easy one to tackle. But Jendi has built a great world within these pages. It is heart-breaking and yet satisfying in the end. It is a well done, well-written book, one that will leave you wanting more out of it. The protagonists, as well as all the people involved within the pages, are quite likable and the reader is simply involved as part of the story. My hat's off to you, Ms. Jendi!

2) This is one of the best books I read for this year’s Rainbow awards. Beautifully written, it touched a chord in me that I can’t quite explain but I will be looking for more from this author.

2. King of the Kitchen by Bru Baker - Gender: Gay - Genre: Contemporary General Fiction
