Omorphi: by Cody Kennedy
reviewed by: Becky
High school senior Michael Sattler leads a charmed life. He’s a star athlete, has great friends, and parents who love him just the way he is. What’s missing from his life is a boyfriend. That’s a problem because he’s out only to his parents and best friend. When Michael accidentally bumps into Christy Castle at school, his life changes in ways he never imagined. Christy is Michael’s dream guy: smart, pretty, and sexy. But nothing could have prepared Michael for what being Christy's boyfriend would entail.
Christy needs to heal after years of abuse and knows he needs help to do it. After the death of his notorious father, he leaves his native Greece and settles in upstate New York. Alone, afraid, and left without a voice, Christy hides the myriad scars of his abuse. He desperately wants to be loved and when he meets Michael, he dares to hope that day has arrived. When one of Michael’s team-mates becomes an enemy and an abuser from Christy’s past seeks to return him to a life of slavery, only Michael and Christy's combined strength and unwavering determination can save them from the violence that threatens to destroy their future together.
I used to think of the term moving in relation to reading was how a book made you feel a certain emotion, but that is no longer the case. After reading this book the term moving has a new meaning for me, I now think of it as the way a book makes you feel several different emotions within a short span of time, and this moves you in ways you can't explain.
This book did that for me, I felt anger, pain, and fear for Christy, but in the same breadth of time, I felt his joy, love and contentment to be with Michael. This is a beautifully written story of a broken boy who with the love and patience of the one he idolizes, can start to put the pieces of his world together again, and experience things he never thought he would.
Cody Kennedy shows us that pain is real, and wounds, both emotional and physical are real, but so is love and redemption. Please get this book and let it move you the way it did me. I have included US and UK links to Cody's Amazon page so you can get it. Thanks Cody, for this beautiful work of art that is a shining example of love and strength.
