9780747592709: My Side of the Story

'My name is Jarold, but everyone calls me Jaz, which is a damn sight cooler I think you'll agree. I'm sixteen (just) and I have two remarkably undivorced parents, along with a sister and a grandmother and we all live in the same house together just like in a TV show. I've just started my A levels too, which me and Al are planning to fail, which is our way of saying Fuck You to the British educational standard.' So what if your parents hate each other and want you to have therapy? So what if your holier-than-thou sister and her posse have decided you're going to hell? So what if the school tyrant and his goons are hunting you down, or if your best friend has just outed you to a neo-Nazi? Jaz isn't planning to lose any sleep over it - at least until he meets the guy of his dreams at the local gay bar. Suddenly things are a lot more complicated Witty, acerbic, and incredibly funny, My Side of the Story is the perfectly rendered portrait of a precocious, troubled teenager faced with the awkward process of growing up and coming out.

About the Author:

Will Davis was born in 1980 and lives in London. This is his first novel.

From Booklist:

The best thing about British author Davis' first novel is the chatty, self-deprecating, ultraironic voice he has created for his 16-year-old gay narrator, whose full name is (shudder) Jarold. "But," J. tells readers in one of many asides, "everyone calls me Jaz, which is a damn sight cooler I think you'll agree." Poor Jaz: all he wants is a little fun at the local gay pub, where he hangs with his best friend Al (short for Alice), but the two kids keep encountering their sobersided teacher Mr. Fallows and--in an effort to get him off their backs--launch a campaign they call "Finding a fellah for Fallows." But there are complications: Jaz inadvertently outs himself at school, his grandma has a stroke, his parents' marriage starts to disintegrate, and the chief object of his affection, an older man (he's 22), refuses to be involved with a teenager. These customary coming-of-age elements are saved from staleness by the freshness, humor, and honesty of Jaz's always-engaging voice. Michael Cart
