A Place to Run (The Making of a Man)

A Place To Run  - Diane  Adams 3.5 strong stars...There is really nothing new or original about this story. We've experienced the hateful, bigoted parent before. We've read about the hurt boy kicked out of his home because he was gay before. We've been told the story of one man walking away because he didn't feel he was good enough for the other before. BUT...this is JARED AND ALEX! And really, that's all that matters. Jared and his rock-solid integrity and deep devotion to Alex. Alex and his youthful passion and joy in loving Jared. It is impossible (for me) not to love these two. I would have rolled my eyes at the story. I would have sighed frustratingly at the writing.I would have made fun of the been-there-done-that subject matters.I would have screamed at the juvenile YA spin of this book.BUT...this is JARED AND ALEX! So, I heart it...
