Book description from Good Reads:
Five years ago Josh’s life changed. Drastically. And everyone in his school, his town—seems like the world—thinks they understand.
But they don’t—they can’t.
And now, about to graduate from high school, Josh is still trying to sort through the pieces. First there’s Rachel, the girl he thought he’d lost years ago. She’s back, and she’s determined to be part of his life, whether he wants her there or not.
Then there are college decisions to make, and the toughest baseball game of his life coming up, and a coach who won’t stop pushing Josh all the way to the brink.
And then there’s Eve. Her return brings with it all the memories of Josh’s past. It’s time for Josh to face the truth about what happened.
If only he knew what the truth was . . .
I can’t even find enough words to describe how awesome Barry Lyga is. He is a great writer who explores a lot of “hot topics” in unique ways without his books ever becoming “problem novels.” He is hilarious and smart and an excellent speaker; I saw him at YALSA’s YA Literature symposium last year. And now, he’s supporting book bloggers by providing us autographed copies of his books for giveaways. How awesome is that?
I have one brand new, autographed copy of Boy Toy to give away! If you haven’t read this book, or any book by him, you need to enter this contest!
