An intricate tale, with well-drawn characters. The plot is sometimes trite, other times predictable. But, a good read nonetheless. I must admit that the most attractive thing about the book is the picture on the slip cover.
A heartwarming tale of acceptance. Scot is a stylized boy with a variety of quirks and mannerisms which would be shunned in many areas. The loving care and acceptance that he receives are welcome and probably saved his life.
An engaging novel in the Mary Renault tradition. It talks about forbidden love and situations with delicacy and grace. Anyone looking for a quick thrill can look elsewhere. Patrons of good, tasteful literature can rely on Ms. Renault again!
A well thought-out narrative of the growing attraction between two teen aged boys. For awhile, the love is unrequited, until there is cooperation and communion of spirit and bodies. The hesitance on the part of one of the characters to "commit" sometimes becomes frustrating to the reader.
