Tips on Having a Gay (ex) Boyfriend: 06/03/12
Tips on Having a Gay (ex) Boyfriend by Carrie Jones follows a week in Belle's life as she recovers from the news that her boyfriend, Dylan, is gay.
Belle's transition from sadness, anger to reluctant acceptance relies heavily on music. The book is written in diary form. It's written in a raw, emotional and sometimes rambling fashion.
There's also a lot of repetition. Dylan, the ex, does follow a few stereotypes but he has enough non-stereotype aspects to his personality that I let the other parts slide. Gay men are as diverse a group as any other and some of them do fall into the stereotypes either by accident or by choice.
