truly want to give it four and a half stars, leaving the final half star for this promising new authors next effort, which I m certain I ll purchase A stimulating debut work, the authors writing is sure and very accessible, yet has its own arresting style I found myself slipping inside of the skins of the two lead characters very easily The relationships between the two high schoolers and their friends had me flashing back to my high school days and assigning faces to the supporting cast The angst and the torment of being ostracized at that age was nicely balanced with lighter sunnier moments that had me laughing When the capitulating violence occurs, it is swift and startling in its intensity It momentarily ripped me from the warmth of the engrossing narrative and into the reality of the violence occurring in high schools today That jolt is the reason this one almost got five stars.Suddenly the title Surviving Elite High took on new meaning for me This is not only a gay coming of age tale, but rather a tale about overcoming the odds, of surviving and thriving when confronted with negativity of any kind, at any age It shines a light on the fact that even though one often feels alone, we all share that feeling at one point or another in our lives The book reminded me that humans can be humane and supportive and that one bad apple does not always spoil the entire barrel I also loved the ending which was conclusive without a pat happily ever after and left me hoping the author pens a second novel about the boys next adventure senior high Buy the book, it s a classic

because she went down on my dick for the last two weeks My jaw dropped open Nick was such a bad assNo, John the narrator s name You are wrong Nick is not a badass He is arrogant, a prick and also vicious when he said in another comment how women get out of his bed begging for mercy or crawling out bed on a wheelchair This book is not for me I liked the enthusiasm telling the story, but hate the womanizer main character possible partner, Nick How could I want to read a story with someone like him BTW that phone call Nick is talking to his ex girlfriend Oh yeah Great person huh Because just ignore the call is not enough He is a badass and so Better talk about how many friends of his ex he had sex On her face, saying it Such a badass, no I like to read a story when a bad guy will redeem himself and became a better person but in this case I can t Nick irritated me too much I will compile a petition to revoke his badass club membership Who is with meeeeee XDSo Let s me say I like John the protagonist a lot, and also the enthusiasm I could feel reading the story, but the bad writting and the asshole Nick were the reasons I m giving up I knew it s a self published story, so I must admit I could even ignore mistakes but I can t ignore an asshole character.Yeah, asshole not badass I know, I know, it s a matter of semantics Let s just call him an ass I went into this story with a little apprehension, first because I normally do not read YA stories and second because from the blurb and reviews I knew there would be bullying, drama and tears I am so glad that I did read it because I would have missed out so much on such a refreshing and wonderful story There is so much to love about John and you can t help but love him from page one of the story I was a little leary at first of Nick, because I kept waiting for him to be a jerk to John or hu I went into this story with a little apprehension, first because I normally do not read YA stories and second because from

out not to be and you saw a completely different side to him John and Nick are perfect together and make each other so much stronger Madison and Kitty just rounded the story out as best friend and protectors of John and ultimately to Nick as well I can t wait for a continuation of this story to see the ups and downs that they have to face now and how everything works out for all of them I just

opinion and now a favourite of mine.The characters were so good I was skeptical of Nick at first, by the end I loved him He was one of those characters I thought might never come out It was just the way I have seen a lot of books going and by the end they are still in the closet But John tastefully wrote this and made it very emotional for me.The protagonist John I laughed at John and John was such a sweet boy He had a great mother and two wonderful friends I always wanted the best for him, especially when he was being bullied It was upsetting to see him so afraid But unfortunately that is the reality of the life of a gay teenager in most high schools.I would highly recommend this book to all YA fans It is such a great story and you will miss out by not reading it All I want to know is,

twists that include a school shooting, a tempting love interest who threatens the primary romance, and a psychotic ex girlfriend Ames writing style is endearing and captivating The emotion seems to leap through the pages, and this story honestly touched me far deeper than most of the professionally edited published novels I ve read recently Please watch for this aspiring author He s an amazing talent I ll be reading any future releases as soon as I can get my hands on them I m not going to waste time restating the blurb above It s a pretty good overview of Surviving Elite High But, what it doesn t reveal is just how fabulous this book really is I ve never been a big fan of the whole 90210 vibe of some YA romance novels Somehow, the poor guy always gets screwed and the rich guy is never as good as we want him to be But, reading Surviving Elite High was like watching the pilot of a new TV series with its growing pains and watching the growth of the actors and I m not going to waste time restating the blurb above It s a pretty good overview of Surviving Elite High But, what it doesn t reveal is just how fabulous this book really is I ve never been a big fan of the whole 90210 vibe of some YA romance novels Somehow, the poor guy always gets screwed and the rich guy is never as good as we want him to be But, reading Surviving Elite High was like watching the pilot of a new TV series with its growing pains and watching the growth of the actors and the entire crew as they grow together as the season progresses.The first couple of chapters weren t earth shattering, but the writing was interesting enough to keep me reading But, as we get to know John and meet, first his tormentors and then his friends, you couldn t help but want to get to know this kidAt this point, his sexuality wasn t even an issue He was just trying to get from point A to B without getting his ass beat by dumb jocks His first person POV was quite interesting Despite all the negativity in his life, he has a great attitude He is really thrown off kilter, when he meets Nick and finds his secret crush is really a nice guy most of the time.So like I said, after that slow start, this book is really fast paced It really is like watching a soap opera there is so much going on But, somehow, it wasn t too much And even with all the drama going on, it wasn t maudlin The secondary cast is great John s best friends, Madison and Kitty are two little rich girls that have kinda adopted John But, rather than being the typical teenage bitches, like on Pretty Liars, they are genuinely nice girls Hell, even Nick s competition is a nice guy It was really cool, to see them all supporting each other through the chaos of high school.Now, I know for a fact that this is supposed to be John s story It s written from his point of view, but for me Nick is the bomb From the minute that John makes a blip on his radar, Nick is unwavering in his devotion first as a friend and later as a lover To everyone else, he can be a bipolar dickhead, but not with John With John he is always protective and emotionally open and I loved him There were several times, throughout the book, where I could have just reached in a hugged him for his choices.John H Ames Juan Alvarado is a fabulous fresh voice in GLBT YA fiction I can t wait for the next book in this series Senior year at Elite High promises to be another rollercoaster ride and I can t wait And in a perfect world, Jacob will find someone just as amazing as he is Highly recommending this title for readers who hate bullies, love enemies falling in love and young men growing up nicely
