Additional Information

Tales from Foster High: Book One

Kyle Stilleno is the invisible student, toiling through high school in the middle of Nowhere, Texas. Brad Greymark is the baseball star of Foster High. When they bond over their mutual damage during a night of history tutoring, Kyle thinks maybe his life has changed for good. But the promise of fairy-tale love is a lie when you’re gay and falling for the most popular boy in school. A coming of age story in the same vein of John Hughes, Tales from Foster High shows an unflinching vision of the ups and downs of teenage love and what it is like to grow up gay.

This brought some unexpected feels from me. A couple of little story arcs to tug at my heartstrings. Other than that, ‘Tales from Foster High’ was an excellent tale of angst, coming out, and discovering the stuff that you are made of. Told in dual perspectives this bind-up edition of three novellas feels seamless as one big story.

Kyle is a brilliant portrayal of the invisible kid, just trying to make it through high school and get out of his home town. I also like how, even though he was portrayed as a nerd, he wasn’t stereotyped as covered with pimples, wearing glasses, skinny, and unattractive. It was great to see him through Brad’s eyes and know that beauty is subjective to the beholder.

Brad, although embodying the ‘all American jock’ trope, quickly started deconstructing those expectations with is actions in the first chapter. I admired his teetering between courage and fear.

Both of these characters go through... Read more
So I'm sitting here stressing about this review. You see? Review in is not my thing. I'm pretty sucky at it and I'm Ok with that. But when I read a book(s) like this one, is the moment I wish I knew what the heck I was doing. Not to feel like I'm the s***, but to give the characters, the story, and the author the acknowledgements/OMG's it deserves. In hopes that it gets the chance to affect others the way it did with me.

Tales of Foster High is a M/M YA romance series. But at the same time it is so much more. Even though thus is a work of fiction it touches on a topic that unfortunately for a lot of gay students it's their truth...it's their life.

Now, I know and I'm fully aware that these things exist and happy everyday. But reading about them, putting a "face" to the situation makes you feel/see it differently. Which is why even though I have always been open with my kids and they know what it is to be gay and bullied, I can not wait to share this book(s) with... Read more
This was a good story. I remember everything and could relate to a lot of what the main characters went through. However it was very confusing at times. The book isn't written like a normal book. Instead of have multiple chapters there are really only 3. At first we meet Kyle, (Which i can personally relate to) and see his ideal thought is to be invisible.But when the local bullies began to make his life even more of a living hell. He decides to fight back. (Been there done that.) Then we got to Brad and find out about his liking Kyle and finding himself stepping into unknown territory. Wishing he could only crawl back into his box where everything is back to normal. Then we go to the part of the book that finds them coming of age and standing up for what they believe in. That is where the book got really good. Other wise if you don't pay attention you will get lost.
