The twists and turns this book takes keeps you turning the pages.

Another thing was the fact that the main character did not fall in love with another guy all in the first page but it progressed throughout the book.

I don't normally read Young Adult but I've just finished Changing Jamie by Dakota Chase that has made me realize what I've been missing out on. No one ever said growing up was easy, butwhen you're young, gay, and haven't told anyone, especially your parents, it's downright hard. Jamie's best friend, Billy, is openly gay and his goal in life is to cause his straight-laced parents as much embarrassment as possible. Jamie's stepfather is emotionally abusive, and he feels his mother is siding with his stepfather over him. Jamie has a crush on Dylan Anderson, high school jock and when he's assigned as a tutor to help Dylan pass his SATs, he thinks his fantasies have come true, except now he actually has to talk to him. Jamie learns that Billy is playing a dangerous game where he is purposely trying to catch AIDS. To top it all off, circumstances force him to come out in front of the whole school. The twists and turns this book takes keeps you turning the pages. You realize that gay or straight, all teenagers have the same wants and the same fears. This is one book I recommend not passing up.

Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! What a wonderful hidden gem! This story should become must reading for all young adults- gay or straight! Dakota Chase writes perfectly for his target audience. Too many authors of young adult fiction condescend or write down to their audience. Chase does not. This novel has lessons for all of us.

In "Changing Jamie," the budding romance between track team members Jamie and Dylan rings very true. And it's not only their story that is very real. Their parents and classmates are very true to life. A very interesting addition here in what is an above-average gay coming-of-age tale is Billy, the protagonist's best friend. While there usually are best friends, this one has an extraordinarily dark edge. His storyline is about a very serious and contemporary subject--bug-chasing, the desire by some gay men (a fortunately extremely small group) to become infected with HIV, for a variety of sadly warped reasons. It's a very different sub-plot for a book like this, and the author handles its deftly, teaching a great lesson in the end. Overall, though, this is a solid, realistic, fun novel.

Format: Paperback
I was really looking forward to this book, I felt that it might be an easy read, but in the end I was bored to death from all of the "plot twists". The character of Jamie was drab and see through, while his best friend was an obnoxious jerk.
I'm used to reading about gay teens that have an alcoholic step father, for some reason that's a common battle in these gay teenage romances. The author will feel like they are showing how strong the character is, when really the commonality of the whole 'battle' is just boring by this point.
I have a few more complaints but those were my biggest ones.
Oh, and the cover looked like it was done in paint.

Format: Paperback
I found that Changing Jamie was a wonderful story. You see so many young gay novels about love and sex and discovery, but you can rarely find a book about "bug chasers" and "gift-givers", it's not a topic you'd ever see touched on. The only flaw to this book is the grammar and spelling mistakes littered throughout the book, even at one point accidentally mixing up the names. It might be due to the past as an English major, but it was the one thing that took the book down a peg for me.
