Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 10 Up—Tanner's family moved from California to Provo, Utah, almost two years ago. They are one of the very few non-Mormon families in town, with a mother who left the Mormon church in college and a nonpracticing Jewish father. Although Tanner's family is exuberantly supportive of his bisexuality, they all agree it's safest to keep it to himself in the ultra-conservative town. With only one semester until graduation, Tanner plans to keep his head down and escape unscathed. Then Sebastian Brothers walks into his life. Sebastian is mentoring the school's legendary novel writing seminar, after having his own class novel bought for publication. Tanner is in lust at first sight, but Sebastian is the son of the Mormon bishop. As Sebastian begins to return Tanner's flirtation, questions arise about how far he's willing to push his faith and how satisfied Tanner can be in the shadows. The duo writing team (Christina Hobbs & Lauren Billings) brings an impressively balanced approach to writing about the conflict between sexuality and strict religion. Members of the Mormon church are not painted as one-dimensional villains, but as multifaceted individuals with merits and faults. Sebastian is a devoted Mormon even as he struggles to justify his attraction to the same sex. Occasionally, the major characters are too effortlessly talented and popular, with their flaws only emerging when narratively convenient. Regardless, the teenagers are modern and relatable and the plot is emotionally engaging without becoming dark. VERDICT A thoughtful variation on the traditional high school LGBTQ+ romance that will enhance public library collections.—Amy Diegelman, formerly at Vineyard Haven Public Library, MA

Review

"Once again writing as Lauren, Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings (The House) tackle religion, identity, and sexuality, seamlessly interweaving Tanner’s Seminar project, his crush on Sebastian, and the fallout when Sebastian’s feelings conflict with his church’s expectations of him. A hopeful and moving love story." (Publishers Weekly)

"Manages to tackle the intricacies of sexuality versus organized religion in an intense but ultimately inspirational narrative. Lauren successfully tackles a weighty subject with both ferocity and compassion." (Booklist August 1, 2017)

"Readers will cheer for Tanner's confidence in his sexual identity and for the quality bi representation he provides. Satisfying." (Kirkus Reviews July 2017)

"This sensitive and complex story is as much about finding love as it is about finding and accepting oneself....The text deals sensitively with serious issues, especially Sebastian’s grappling with his sexuality in the context of a stifling Mormon upbringing, but it’s also hilarious and relatable. Readers will enjoy seeing Tanner find his voice." (Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books September 2017)

"An impressively balanced approach to writing about the conflict between sexuality and strict religion. Members of the Mormon church are not painted as one-dimensional villains, but as multifaceted individuals with merits and faults....The teenagers are modern and relatable and the plot is emotionally engaging without becoming dark. VERDICT A thoughtful variation on the traditional high school LGBTQ+ romance" (School Library Journal September 2017)

"This book is epic." (Santino Hassell Cosmopolitan)

“Nails the joys and sadness of growing up queer.” (Teen Vogue )

“We loved Autoboyography the moment we heard its name…It’s filled with pride, encouragement, and hope for LGBTQ teens everywhere.” (HelloGiggles.com )

"At its heart, Lauren’s book is a tender yet occasionally heart-wrenching love story for readers who enjoy romance that highlights the importance of knowing one’s self." (VOYA October 2017)
