To continue his high school education and study law in the future, Elliot had to leave his family home among the Ojibway people and move to Thunder Bay. Although the boy constantly misses his loved ones, he has someone at his side who to some extent makes the time spent away from the family less severe. Bryan, his best friend and secret love, is rich, handsome, popular, and, as if that was not enough, has influential parents. But most importantly, his heart is in the right place and this heart b ...more

**There are some spoilers in this review**

Elliott and Bryan had to be one of the sweetest coming of age couples I've read in a while.

Elliot had to attend school off the reservation in order to obtain the education needed to pursue his dream in law. Being the youngest in his family, the pressure was on. Being gay did not help in an environment where people could be potentially judgemental, not having any real friends, and fear of the burden on his future.

Bryan came from a family of wealth and inf

Maggie Blackbird brings young love alive in After The Snow Melts. Blackbird lays the crumbs of sweet sorrow before trapping the lovebirds in a car (laugh). Picture two horny teenage boys who are confused about the emotion “love” nevermind the additional pressures of being gay. Blackbird tackles this with finesse and leaves us with an unfinished “happily-ever-after”.

It is two kids who are still partly in the closet hence my use of the term “unfinished”. I really hope Blackbird comes back to these

Sometimes, you just need a minute, to relax, think and talk. Elliot was trying to adjust moving from the reservation to the city. Bryan, his best friend and the popular rich kid befriends him and helps. Bryan, seriously crushing on Elliot. Elliot secretly crushing on Bryan. The boy were on an intricate emotional dance of discovery and stretching boundaries. Being stuck in a car during a snowstory provides an opportunity to open up. Do they take the opportunity of remain in unrequited state? Are ...more

This is a wonderful coming-of-age story - two young men finding their way to each other. Set in a time when it was still not so acceptable to come out, it was even more difficult for Elliott and Bryan to admit their feelings due to general teenage angst, and differences in background and family income. This was a very nice book to read, with realistic characters, and a story line that's timeless. I always enjoy this author and glimpses into her native background.

Wow no double wow....

Wow no double wow a cute short story of two friends who come from different backgrounds but the one thing they both have in common is their attention for the other which neither realize.
Then they end up trapped in the snow in Bryan's car maybe its time to lay all there
cards out and see where they fall.

This is the 5th book I've read written by Maggie Blackbird; she has done a great job at writing a good short story; I can’t wait to read more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the characters.

This is a short,sweet young romance between friends. The author does a nice job bringing them together, despite their different race , discovering their feelings for each other as well as dealing with being gay. It's well written,moves quickly and smoothly and is an interesting read.

A short story about coming of age and first loves. The story was good, the characters had a way of winning you heart with their love story and the ending left you pleased. Not too much drama just a stretch where there’s some tension but all ends up good.

Maggie Blackbird 's After the Snow Melts was a good, sweet coming of age, young love story. I liked that one of the main characters was a Native American - a person of color. My first time reading a main character of Native American background.
