Mandy*reads obsessively*

Ok, when I read the blurb for this free short, I thought * oh please, don't break my heart and make me cry*
Well, it didn't, there was no manipulating my emotions. It is just a sweet short, about a boy who has to deal with way more than he should have to, with a cool mom and a nice boyfriend.

Evan was born with HIV and a cocaine addiction, thanks to his birth mother.
At 4 he lucked out and got an amazing wonderful mother in Marla. And now he also has a best friend Blake who is also his boyfriend

Have you ever wondered what life is like for children born with HIV? They didn't one day discover they had it, it's been with them from day one.

Few of us can imagine the nightmare involved in being HIV-positive, the precautions, the medications, the almost overwhelming responsibility of constantly having to keep themselves out of compromising positions which might put others at risk, not to mention fighting the misinformation and ignorance of the disease.

Evan is a well-adjusted young man with a loving, supportive mother and

There is some real depth to this short story. Evan's struggle to tell Blake of his status is real enough to make my stomach hurt for him. He's scared, but is so sure that Blake will be willing to listen and talk everything out. The pain is explosive when Blake reacts so badly. He lashes out in such ugly ways. I was impressed that Blake ended up in a place that not only calmed his fears and educated him, but showed him a totally different reaction than the one he had. They touch him without fear, ...more

Evan has to tell his boyfriend that he was born HIV positive. This was a really great story. I didn't really expect the direction it went in. This story has one of my favorite book moms in it. She was amazing.
