Don't Let Me Go by J.H.Trumble
Some people spend their whole lives looking for the right partner. Nate Schaper found his in high school. In the eight months since their cautious flirting became a real, honest, tell-the-parents relationship, Nate and Adam have been inseparable. Even when local kids take their homophobia to brutal levels, Nate is undaunted. He and Adam are rock solid. Two parts of a whole. Yin and yang.
But when Adam graduates and takes an Off-Broadway job in New York—at Nate’s insistence—that certainty begins to flicker. Nate starts a blog to vent his frustrations and becomes the center of a school controversy, drawing ire and support in equal amounts. But it is the attention of a new boy who is looking for more than guidance that forces him to confront who and what he really wants.
J.H. Trumble’s debut, DON’T LET ME GO, is a witty, beautifully written novel that is both a sweet story of love and long-distance relationships, and a timely discourse about bullying, bigotry, and hate in high schools.

My Favorite Books, by J.H. Trumble
I always have a book or two going, but I don’t get to read nearly as much as I used to. And often, I’m reading for a purpose now—to write a review, to keep up with what’s hot, to see what else is out there in my chosen genre. I rarely choose books just for pleasure anymore.
But there was a time . . .
As I look over this list, I’m reminded of the kind of books I’m drawn to—vast, complex stories; tough, resilient characters; and a touch of romance. If a book is on this list, it’s because I still think about it even though it’s been, in many cases, years since I read it. For me, that’s the measure of a great book. I just can’t stop thinking about it. I rarely keep books, but I’m pretty sure I have a ratty copy of each of these on my shelf. And I’ve read each of them more than once (and that’s very rare for me).
One day, maybe I’ll write a book so awesome. If I had to choose one that’s more me, it would have to be John Irving’s The World According to Garp. Have you read it?
