Tristant and Elijah

Here’s what some readers have to say about Tristant and Elijah:

Brin from Brin’s Book Blog:

Even though Tristant was overall the more dynamic character (who doesn’t love a bookish, nerdy, quiet yet also snarky and self-assured protagonist?) I really related to Elijah and found his struggles to be both realistic and moving.

‘Nathan from Red Room:

Lavoie’s ability to write parent-and-kid scenes that go right to my heart and make me sniffly is dialed up to ten here. Next time I’m not reading her book in the middle of a food court.

Veronica from V’s Reads:

TRISTANT AND ELIJAH, by Jennifer Lavoie, provides both a “mystery” and a “coming out” tale, so it thrilled me! It is my fave YA coming out tale of 2014, so far. […] I truly loved the supportive role that Tristant played for Elijah in his journey. Elijah’s anguish, and Tristant’s empathy and kindness are palpable. These two are really tender boys–and I’m glad that they found each other.

Amos from Reviews by Amos Lassen:

The best word that I can use to describe the story is sweet because the boys learn something about themselves as they search for information about Uncle Glenn. Tristant is openly gay, something we do not usually have in young adult fiction. He is out and he is comfortable with himself even though he wants someone he does not think he can have.

Crystal from Crystal’s Many Reviews: 

I’m not usually a fan of YA books. For some reason I just can’t get into them most of the time. When I read the blurb of this book, I decided that I had to give it a shot.  And after feeling it, I am so glad that I did!

Atlas Deen from His Gay Atlas:

Tristant and Elijah by Jennifer Lavoie was a pretty great read! It was sweet and most definitely a unique high school “gay” story, because while it did deal with coming out, it didn’t go through the usual tropes, such as people finding out and drama ensuing or one of the guys being a jock who is terrified of coming out and has girlfriend to cover up the fact he is gay.
