I read 8 books this month and only really loved one of them.  I started two other novels and stopped at 50 and 80 pages, just couldn't continue.  Books by my favorite authors didn't make the short list of the "loved" books.  It was a surprising month.

Golden Boy is the debut novel from Abigail Tarttelin.  Max Walker is a golden boy. Attractive, intelligent, and athletic, he’s the perfect son, the perfect friend, a wonderful big brother and the perfect crush for the girls in his school.  Everyone loves him.  Max has a secret that sets him apart from everyone, he's intersex.  The novel is beautifully written and very hard to put down.  Tarttelin deals with a difficult subject and the circumstances of the story with care and insight.
