Jack - Vintage Contemporaries Author:A. M. Homes Fifteen-year-old Jack's confused feelings for his father, who left him and his mother four years earlier, are further complicated when he finds that his father is gay.
This was a real departure from Homes' usually shocking novels; much tamer in tone. The narrator is a really likeable boy coming to terms with his confusing life. I have a son the same age, and I can truly say that she got it right. Enjoyed it.
