Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Terrified that his classmates will discover he is gay, high-school freshman Jamie decides his best cover is to start dating a girl. No sooner has he decided this than beautiful, wealthy Celia expresses an interest in him, but unfortunately, it evolves into a sexual interest that Jamie cannot reciprocate. But wait: Celia’s father is a doctor who develops behavior-modification drugs and is experimenting with one that will “cure” homosexuality. Still determined to change, Jamie begins stealing the untested meds. In an interesting parallel, his best friend, Wesley, simultaneously decides to take himself off the Ritalin that has helped control his hyperactivity. Things don’t work out as either expected. Though sometimes a bit clumsy and melodramatic in its execution, Klise’s first novel succeeds in capturing the terrible anxiety of a teen discovering the truth of his sexual identity while also offering a cautionary take on the sinister personal and social ramifications of medical technology’s attempt to change one’s sexual orientation. An excellent novel for both classroom and gay-straight alliance discussion. Grades 8-11. --Michael Cart


"One of, to my mind, the finest young adult novels. Fabulous. I was charmed, delighted and enlightened."

"Klise has created an empathetic protagonist and a thoughtful story about identity, sexuality, and learning to accept oneself."
--PUBLISHERS WEEKLY --09/06/2010

"This coming-of-age gay novel includes the basics of learning to accept who you are and adds a touch of intrigue. This is a great choice for anyone questioning their sexuality or for teens who like a little twist in their mystery."
--VOYA --August 2010

"Klise's first novel succeeds in capturing the terrible anxiety of a teen discovering the truth of his sexual identity."
--BOOKLIST -- 11/01/10

"This book exemplifies the struggle young teens may feel with their sexuality and the decisions they make to repress their feelings. Jamie's experience is authentic, and his feelings are presented in a way that is relatable for teens."
--ALAN ONLINE -- 08/07/10

"The debate over a drug that could change sexual orientation is certainly a timely one, and readers seeking a quick read that can open this discussion may find this a useful starting point."

"An intriguing, perceptive, and heartwarming novel, Love Drugged may seem like any other simple coming-of-age novel, but with its twists and page-turning effect, it will ultimately leave a lasting impression. 5 stars!"
--TEENSREADTOO.COM --September 2010

"Delightful...Klise simultaneously captures moments of possibility and angst in the story of a Chicago gay teenager in Love Drugged."
--TIME OUT CHICAGO --Sept. 16-22, 2010

"Wonderful...Sharp and funny and full of heart."
