Book of Stuart, Chapter 1:10.

10 And, yea verily, Stuart did commit the Sin of Onan in the shower. And this was witnessed by his own brother who did cry out unto their mother. And there was much wailing and gnashing of teeth.
11 And the townspeople rose up against him and all Onaners, calling upon one another to tear the youthful sinners limb from unclean limb. And there was much pants wetting.
12 And lo, Stuart did join forces with the demon, Fon Pyre, and together they did set forth to discover the cause of the town's trouble.
13 And, hark! A pair of fallen angels would plant seeds of hatred unto the townspeople. And on the seventh day, Stuart did vow to rip the fallen angels a new one and layeth upon them an epic smacketh-down.


Okay, before you read any further, if you are easily offended, DO NOT READ! LOL...If you can see humor in everything, please read on.

I admit, the cover is what made me check this book out at my local library. I then went on to read the back of the book and thought this might be interesting. OMG! So not what you expect in a young adult novel!

Stuart is an openly gay teenager in a school and town that is very Christian based. Even though the town is accepting of him being gay, they are horrified to find out he masturbates. GASP! Okay if you can handle that, then you can handle the rest. The author finds humor in expressing this aspect with lines that will be having you laugh out loud! The author describes his writing style as Far Fetched Fiction and it is, but I have not laughed this much reading a book in awhile. Witty humor, fallen angels, and a wonderfully and devious little demon! What more could you ask for in a paranormal fiction book!

I will say though that I found this to be for older teenagers. I wouldn't let my 14 year old read this without warning her of the story first. That is the only thing that kept me from giving this book the higher rating!


Very Good! Worth Spending Your Money on!

Yeah I almost thought about reviewing this book but read the first chapter and did not go any farther..just not the stuff I want to read. Glad to see someone reviewing it though.

It sounds...different. Probably something I would read. I am not easily offended and quite like a little bit of controversy. : D

Thanks for the great review!
