Waiting On Wednesday (58)

Idea taken from Breaking The Spine

Love Drugged by James Klise.

Fifteen-year old Jamie Bates has a fail-safe strategy for surviving high school: fit in. Keep a low profile. And, above all, protect his biggest secret—he’s gay. So when a classmate discovers the truth, a terrified Jamie decides it’s time to change. After accepting flirtatious advances from Celia, the richest and most beautiful girl in school, Jamie steals an experimental new drug that’s supposed to “cure” his attraction to guys. At first, Jamie thinks he’s finally on track to living a “normal” life. But at what cost? As the drug’s side effects worsen and his relationship with Celia heats up, Jamie begins to realize that lying and using could shatter the fragile world of deception that he’s created—and hurt the people closest to him.

A star-crossed romance with humor and heart, Love Drugged explores the consequences of a life constructed almost entirely of lies . . . especially the lies we tell ourselves.

I don't usually read GLBT books but this one sounds ultimately appealing. A drug to cure Jamie's attraction to guys is enough to keep me wondering how this book is going to be like. The story sounds very promising with a lovely message too. I have to read this one, for sure.

Cover: I sort of love/hate it. The heartshape is nice but not the pills : (

How the drug is going to take effect on Jamie? Check the book out on Sept 1st 2010 to see.
