ARC Review: Bottled Up Secret by Brian McNamara
Brendan is a happy little High School Senior with friends and a big ole secret, He's gay. Just coming to terms with it himself he hasn't told any of his friends also, he has a huge crush on one of his friend's boyfriend, Mark. Mark is cool funny and they get along great and every time they talk it seems like Mark is flirting with him. Does he feel the same about him? or is he just the unconsciously flirt with everyone kind of guy? Turns out feelings are reciprocated and they start dating on the DL but keeping secrets from everyone you care about is hard maybe too hard for their fledgling romance to survive.
I didn't really connect with this book mostly 'cause of the writing style it just felt so vague and not well written. The story had potential, I love High School students coming to terms with their sexuality and exploring new feelings but this story just didn't deliver.
