Book Review: Trapped in Oz (Tales from Kansas #3) – Andrew Grey

Trapped In Oaz[Book 3 of Tales From Kansas Series]

BLURB: Martin Long has plans and dreams, but they are derailed when his parents move and must sell their house. In need of a place to stay, fast, he answers an ad for a roommate, and even though the house needs work, the owner seems nice so Martin agrees to move in.

Gary Hunter is barely making ends meet, with mysteriously disappearing tips at work and tuition to pay. Disowned by his family and left with a house in need of repair, Gary desperately needs the extra set of hands along with the money.

When Gary confesses that his family disowned him for being gay, Martin makes his own confession that opens a world of possibilities. But Gary has paid a heavy price for being who he is, and Martin’s unwillingness to open up to his family puts strain on the fledgling relationship.


This may be my favorite book in the series only because I just loved Gary’s character and really feel for him dearly. The characters are very well developed although Martin who keeps on repeating himself about not wanting to come out fearing his parent reaction did get on my nerves a bit but with that beautiful ending, I decided to let go of it. One of Gary’s friend was named Larry and I thought he’s the same bully from the second book – it would have been nice if he was able to turn his life around yeah? I’d love for this story to be much longer because I feel that the ending was rush to stay with the series’ 7 chapters policy. I loved that we get to see Roger and Lyle here and the timeline was like years here. I was hoping that we’d get to see Nate and Jeremy as well but perhaps, the author will revisit them in the next book in the series. I decided that I liked this series after all. It’s not overly dramatic, a bit predictable but very easy and fun to read.

 Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
