The Value of X (Rickey and G-Man #1) by Poppy Z. Brite
Review: Very interesting read, nothing quite like I have ever read before and can’t wait to read more of. The story is down to earth with problems that real world people really go through, such as coming out of the closet, dealing with others harsh view of your life, and making a relationship work through all of theses, with the added bonus is long distance. Rickey and Gary are very much in love and best friends, this is what makes the story so intriguing. It also makes it hard to put the book down or slow down while reading it to make it last.3 out of 5 stars.
