The Book of David by Anonymous

The Book of David
Title and author-The Book of David by Anonymous
Publisher- June 3rd 2014 by Simon Pulse
Page Numbers- 256
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
His secret is his downfall. A riveting, first-person tale in the tradition of Go Ask Alice and Lucy in the Sky.
The author of this fictional diary began writing for a class assignment, but soon it became much more to him. As the star player of his high school football team, he faces a lot of pressure and expectation. Not to mention the secret that he’s harboring inside. The secret that could change everything.
And as David quickly learns, nothing stays secret forever.
His innermost thoughts and feelings are chronicled in the diary he left behind.
The book of David is a very different book. This LGBTQ book seems very realistic. The diary style of the book made this book seem super personal, almost too personal. The author was able to set the scene perfectly. The book of David takes a look on how hard it is for someone to come out of the closet. David is a southern boy who is a football player and goes to church. But he is gay, he doesn't want anyone to know because his father would "kill" him. Everything was normal, David had a girlfriend, plenty friends and has his football career. Until he meets Jon, the drama swimmer who will show David who he really is.
This book is fantastic. Very intense at times and kind of emotional. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who love to read LGBQ books. This book is easily one of my favorite books ever!
WARNING there are sex scenes m/m and f/m but nothing is too descriptive.
