DON'T MISS THE BIBLE BOYS
The Bible Boys by: Dan Skinner
reviewed by: Becky
A Sin. An Abomination. Teenagers Caleb and Matthew had been told by the radical fundamentalist church that dominated their families' lives that a love like theirs—between two boys—was unnatural and forbidden. That it would damn them forever. The religion controlled their families like puppets, watched their every move, made keeping a secret almost impossible. They had only one chance to be together...and it would be a daring one right under the noses of the very people who would condemn them...
I am so glad I read this one by Dan Skinner, I was profoundly moved and felt so much empathy for these boys. It is a shame public opinion can prevent two people from acting on their passion, but I am so glad they found a way. The way this book is written is flawless, and you get chills when you think that some people of faith actually believe this way. You will not regret reading this one, it grabs you and holds on tight, you will laugh, you will shed a few tears, and you will overall feel for a boy who's family didn't want him to flourish into the man he was meant to be. Another out of the park home run Mr. Skinner, how ever do you make it look so easy? *5 Stars*
