    1. I m not a huge YA fan, but I like it on occasion I ve enjoyed this authors non YA books and a friend who had read this one said she really enjoyed it, so I bought it.I m glad I did.Adam is 16 and he s a bit perfect , he s a good student, a really nice guy, has a good heart and he s naive in a lot of ways He s also a great son, his parents restrict his Internet access a lot and he s not allowed FB, which honestly is admirable and but shocking that he s totally ok with that He also has never view [...]

    3. I pretty much devoured this Yep, it s YA, and so the smexy is very much non existent and just plain adorably sweet and very innocent , but the two main characters are really well developed and grow considerably over the course of the novel.Ru is the experienced cynical one He s been hurt, and constantly living in the public eye has drained him of his youthful optimism On the other hand, Adam is a total innocent He s never been interested in anything romantic or sexual, and his parents guidance [...]


    4. This book is a must read for any LGBTQ youth you know I would recommend this book for many reasons There is a theme throughout the story of acceptance I believe that Sebastian is one of the strongest characters in the book This boy has his stuff TOGETHER He is out and proud and he won t let anyone scare him back into the closet Near the end of the book, Sebastian gives a speech at the school that made me bawl like a baby As much as Adam thought he was invisible, he was at least one person s hero [...]


    5. I have been reading quite a few young adult books lately and I admit I had to sit back and think about my teen years and how my own child, who is a teen, sees the world In some ways it is very different but some things are the same Everything is larger than life, every new experience is as if you are the first to have ever experienced it, fear of being who you are and if you will be accepted, finding that place where you fit in, experiencing love.On the Right Track takes us into that world It is [...]

    7. Michael Stellman delivers another terrific performance I loved the narration, and was kept engaged and interested throughout the story and a maybe even a little sad to see it end.I like Young Adult storiese hormones and the craziness of that time in our lives when everything was SO MUCH I can t say I loved the story because, frankly, the story was just a smidgeon too over the top This is like Romeo and Juliet without the crazy feud and suicide Or the marriage, or theOkay, so it s not like Romeo [...]

    9. 4.5 Stars Sam Kadence is the alter ego, and dear friend of mine, Lissa Kasey Sam writes young adult, a genre I ve told her I m not particularly fond of, although, somehow, I keep getting them, and I ve read some real great ones this past year However, in order to read book two in this series, which has such a wonderful title, I needed to read On The Right Track So, here I am, jumping into Ru and Adam s world.Ru was a member of a pop, boy band, until his then boyfriend, outed him publicly The ex [...]


    10. This was just soo lovely a complete joy to read from the first to the last page It s probably one of the sweetest YA reads I have read Both boys are just oh my god i cant believe it sweet On the Right Track is a bit an unusual story and reminds me of something you most definitely find in Manga Even though Ru is obviously part Japanese there is absolutely nothing Japanese about the book It s pretty much about all American boy band stuff and the horrors of being popular especially at a very young [...]


    11. 3.5 stars This was a sweet YA read It s pretty low on angst and there is very little drama I liked the message of the book and how it dealt with issue of homophobic bullying, which many of its young readers might be facing It s a good read for teens, although I did think it was a bit too fluffy and sweet in places Still, I enjoyed it for what it was and I d love to read by this author.


    12. This is very painful to write Ok, I loved this book and could not put it down until page 165 Adam s wrist was broken on Friday night at the high school football game Somehow, he s able to write and edit two articles for the school newspaper even though he s on drugs and wearing a cast on his dominant hand Oh, and spending a considerable amount of time with his boyfriend, Ru That s pushing it, but still I might have only docked one star for that Then, Monday morning when he goes back to school, A [...]


    13. 3.5 starsI enjoyed this book Adam and Ru we re adorably sweet and it s very low angst There was some minor drama from an ex boyfriend, an ex bandmate, and a school bully There s a great overall message here, even though I feel like it was a bit unrealistic and heavy handed at the end I liked Bas and Tommy and Adam s parents were wonderful I m really looking forward to continuing the series.


    14. Loved this book Although there was a famous person, his celebrity status wasn t a huge focus Which was nice At times it was hard to remember that they are 16 17 years old Maybe I m a bit prudish, but I felt that at times, the kids were treated far too much like adults But the story was great The relationship between Adam and Ru was so sweet It was wonderful and I love how they supported each other.


    15. Reviewed for Prism Book AllianceMichael Stellman did an admirable job on the narration He has a great vocalization for the YA Teen genre Some of the voices for the minor characters were a bit odd, but overall a decent narration job For the Complete Review please see prismbookalliance pos


    16. Overall book rating 4 sweet stars Audio book Narrator Michael Stellman 4 stars Book cover 3 StarsThis was a beautiful sweet young adult book I loved the plot and the characters.


    17. 3.5 Stars There was instalove and an ending that felt like a heavy handed after school special complete with a stage and a speech Other than that, it was a sweet, heart string tugging YA novel with two likable characters and a strong anti bullying message.

    19. Loved this book It was so touching The way it dealt with bullying and how it affects the youth was so important Keep your tissues handy.



    20. 3.7 StarsA sweet young adult romance The ending was a bit abrupt and I m a little miffed at how things were not really resolved with the Boy Band.d how we only get 3rd party referenced consequences for the bullying and assault rampant in this school I know the next book isn t about Ru Adam but I hope there is some follow up because, despite the almost 90210 Gossip Girl level of adulting going on here, the characters are only 16 17 Michael Stellman did a good enough job with the narration no char [...]


    21. 4.5 starsThere is a lot to be said for a good coming of age novel When handled well, this type of story gives us a genuine window into the heart and mind of a young man who is on the cusp of a life changing process, a ofttimes dangerous one that is fraught with the possibility of not only happiness and first love, but also leaving him open for the torture of a family who may cast him aside, a community that may hound and bully him and a life that ultimately could mean no friends and unbearable l [...]

    24. I don t usually like YA books Often I find there s just too much angst Is it realistic to have that much angst Definitely, because what teenager didn t feel like the world would end over some issue problem And certainly LGBT teens have many struggles But this story Amazing Just so beautiful.Ru is a gay singer who was ousted from his boyband when pictures of him with his significant other were released That would have been bad enough, but then he found out that his boyfriend had been cheating on [...]
