Synopsis: From the outside, Hugo wouldn't strike anyone as remarkable. In fact, he is much the same as any other sixteen-year-old in South Beach, Miami. He lives with his single mother, hangs out with his best friend, spends time at the beach, is secretly seeing someone his mother definitely wouldn't approve of him seeing, and, while he finishes high school, he is working a part-time job to save money for college.
But Hugo is anything but a typical sixteen-year-old. His part-time job is not at the local pizza place like he told his mother, but rather at a local gay club, where he works as a go-go boy. And the person he is seeing on the sly is a much older man, one Glenn Elliot Paul, whom Hugo met when he walked into his mother's real estate office. And to make it that much worse, Glenn is also dating Hugo's mother.
In the coming year, Hugo will finally learn the truth behind long-held family secrets, brush up against a kind of fame and fortune, and carry on an increasingly difficult affair with his mother's boyfriend. Not wanting to hurt his mother, and equally unwilling to give up Glenn, Hugo is about to experience his best, his worst, and definitely his strangest year.
Review: "Young man finding his way in a new sexual world" is a common theme in gay male fiction. But what about "young man finds himself working as a stripper, playing a featured part on a nighttime soap opera, and then dating his mother's boyfriend." Hugo, the hero of My Worst Date has a lot to learn about life, and, boy, is he learning fast. David Leddick's prose is charming and insightful, his characters are world-weary but still eager, and his sense of humor and empathy is on target. Set in the semimythical gay world of South Beach, Florida, My Worst Date is a romp with feeling that has some smart things to say.
