Desert Sons, Kendrick, Mark
162 Kendrick, Mark Desert Sons
Lincoln Nebraska Writers Club Press (iUniverse Star 2001 0595191304 / 9780595191307 First Edition Trade Paper Very Good + 8vo -- in Tall 
347 pp. Light thumbing and lightly read. No markings. Light spine creasing. Set in the Morongo Basin of Southern California, this debut novel by Mark Kendrick tells of two teen boys coming out to one another and beginning a relationship. When Scott opens up to Ryan, their friendship is transformed into love. The book follows the thoughts and volatile emotions of a young adult gay relationship. Filled with both first-time wonder and teenage angst. Some critics might wonder how plausible the pollyannish plot might be, with each boy having an adult who is supportive of their gay love, plus generally supportive peers. The darker subplot of Ryan's troubled past and his affair with an older man adds a dash of realism. A sequel has been written about the boys going off to college.
