Thumbs up for Waterways by Kyell Gold. Young adult romance.
Sometimes I think I follow my own reading taste in the exception rather than the observance. See, I was at Worldcon and I ended up at a panel for Furry writers…this would make sense if I were a fur but I’m not, long story tell you later…and the moderator spoke glowingly of the works of Kyell Gold, specifically this book. Five stars from 88 reviews on Amazon further intrigued me. Yep, so I ended up reading a novel about forbidden love between a seventeen-year-old anthropomorphic otter boy and his gay sweetheart who is a black fox. (The problem is the gayness, not the species difference, to be clear.) And you know what? It was engrossing and I was sorry to see it end. If you are in the mood for a sweet coming-of-age love story, I recommend it as a bit of charming fun. Or—if other reviews are to be believed, and I see no reason why not—if you are a young person questioning your sexuality, I highly recommend it as something that might speak to you.
He noticed that their TV was off. Meth, he thought, and almost giggled. “I’m not doing meth, Mom.”
