Blue Moon

Alyson Noël, July 2009. In this sequel to Evermore, protagonist Ever is estranged from her friends for much of the book, so we don’t get to spend a lot of time with gay sidekick Miles.  We do know that he plays Tracy Turnblad in Hairspray, which delights me, especially the way it’s handled – as though it’s just to be expected considering Miles’s star quality.  There isn’t any other gay content, but the main plot – trouble between Ever and her immortal boyfriend Damen – has obvious parallels for closeted gay teens: star-cross’d passion, hiding things from peers and parents, etc.  Noël’s writing can be melodramatic and overwrought, but so can teenagers. Plus, vampires are trés gay.
