Ryan is assigned to Jamie Peterson for his class’s secret gift exchange. If word gets out that he has to make a handcrafted gift for flamboyant and openly gay Jamie, Ryan will be the laughing stock of the school. It’s a good thing no self-respecting boy would be caught dead in a craft store, because otherwise he’d be at risk of being spotted when his mom drags him to her weekly craft workshops. He hopes Jamie will appreciate all the trouble he’s going to for this assignment. Finding the perfect gift is gonna be tricky. Jamie deserves something good, though, after all the crap he has to put up with at school. At least, Ryan tells himself that’s the reason he’s putting so much thought into the gift. It couldn’t be that he has feelings for Jamie, could it? Via Goodreads
Oh, I just love me some young sweet love! This story is just the cutest ever with the underlying drama of teen bullying (Naughty! Naughty! Naughty!) and acceptance. I got me two titles by Madison Parker and this is a really good teaser before I forge ahead with her other full length novel (review to follow for that one). This one’s just a well-written story and my oh my! I’ve been reading heaps of stories with the central characters obsessing on feet or socks! Awwooff!
