Every Boy Should Have a Man gives an alternate, almost fantasylike view of mankind: not as the Oafs, the superior species of earth which is very similar to humans, but rather secondary – as pets and, in some instances, food.  A boy finds a man wandering in the park and he takes him home in hopes that he can hide him long enough to convince his parents to let him keep the man.  But this was no ordinary stray man: he could talk and soon the rightful owner claimed the man and took him home.  The boy’s father, seeing how attached he had become to the man, bought a red-haired female man for him.  The story follows the awkwardness and adventures the boy encounters being from a poor family, yet having a pet that is more common among the wealthy.  The man pets in general seem to be more mentally evolved than what Oafs believe  and as a result Red Sleeves, the boys female man pet, gets into trouble a few times. The story eventually takes an even more interesting turn as it follows the adventures of the female man, who is now fully grown, and not the boy who owns it, who is a teenager still..........

REVIEWS WORTHY READING
Spare a thought for book reviewers. They make our books known but they are usually unknown themselves. My book A Weed in Paradise has got its widest readership and audience through book reviewers than any other promotional method.
Having been a book reviewer for many years myself, I have noticed that the most underappreciated pillars of the eBook ecosystem are the reviewers. For the next few days I will blow the trumpet for reviewers and books worthy of your time.

Reviewer: Tiffany M. Davis
Critically acclaimed author Minister Faust returns with his fourth novel, The Alchemists of Kush.  Set in both modern-day Edmonton, Canada and ancient Sudan, this speculative fiction novel follows the path of two boys who must harness ancient knowledge in order to combat a great evil.
Raphael “Rap” Deng Garang was just your average seventeen year-old war refugee hanging on the streets of Edmonton, Canada. Half-Sudanese and half-Somali, he had one foot in both worlds but truly belonged in neither, especially in the close-knit Somali community in which he lived with his mother. A joy ride in a stolen car with a good friend led Rap down a path of self-knowledge that transformed him into Supreme Raptor, the “conscious rap” sensation........................

The idea of reviewing a book—any book—about forgiveness is frightening. As a result, a reader’s inclination at the onset of reading Forgiveness: 21 Days to Forgive Everyone for Everything may be to just focus on the technical details. Indeed, would Iyanla Vanzant, self-help guru and bestselling author and host of the popular television show Fix My Life, between all her "beloveds" and personal anecdotes, actually help the reader move through his or her own process of forgiveness? Is the writing clear and concise and accompanied by real, hard examples on how to accomplish the various steps? Is the book good?
