    Part thriller part bildungsroman part gritty love letter to New Orleans Hey Joe tries to be many things and doesn't really succeed in being any of themJoe the main character is a lonely horny and rather lost 16 year old who will seemingly respond to anyone who will take notice of him Hey Joe indeed He is a blank slate with very little depth all the characters are rather two dimensional enigmas or cyphers in magical version of the world where homophobia seemingly doesn't exist This is perfectly summed up by that sentence in the last couple of page of the book There was an empty space where his insides had been room for anyone anything to come fill him upThere is much that could be interesting in the premises of the book but those themes are never properly explored and the thriller element is wholly unbelievable Neihart's is an odd use of language He uses a lot of slang and not only during dialogues but that somehow isn't convincing A missed opportunity

    I just thought about this book for some reason today and I realized I hadn't added it to my bookshelf Hey Joe is one of my very favorite gay YA books and probably the very first that I read I can't believe I forgot about it but it has been well over ten years since I read itWhat I recall finding so exciting about Hey Joe is the author's handling of contemporary gay teen issues; not just the family and peer acceptance stuff but also the figuring out where one fits in the world as a post Stonewall gay young man Really it was sort of a sleeper novel that received some critical acclaim but was perhaps a little ahead of its time Some years later in the new millennium authors like Alex Sanchez David Levithan and Peter Cameron achieved a lot mass market success writing contemporary YA in the same realistic matter of fact vein

    I read this so long ago I can barely remember a single detail other than it drove me along to read the whole thing in one sitting Lovely cover artwork encapsulates the feeling of the book I can't express how much admiration I feel towards a publisher who is willing to pair artwork so well with the story Entice every sense except smell I'd hate a scratch and sniff book let it be said

    This was the first gay book that I ever read years before I started to come out It made me feel connected to a world of possibilitiesI should read it again

    I'm rating this book twice because both covers were great How rare is it to have a different paperback cover that works as well as the hardcover? Rare I think I mean very
