I find myself chuckling few times. The book was really good and I liked the parts where Brad stood up for Kyle but especially where Kyle stood up for himself.

Kyle is the loner in school - intelligent, socially awkward, alcoholic abusive mother. Brad is the star of the baseball team, one of the gods of high school. Popular, beautiful.
When Brad asks Kyle to tutor him in history, it sparks a change in both young men that has to be read to be savored. I L "I don't remember the moment I knew I was broken And I cannot wait for the sequel. Goode captures both boys so heartbreakingly well. I found myself aching and crying with the care he invested in these characters.
Other writers looking to capture what it is to be a gay man, or a boy, or whatever, should read this and pay close attention to the voices, especially of Kyle. So many don't get it right, that it is scary and unreal and that you feel broken when you realize you are different. I wish I had had this to read with I was a teenager.
Or even in my early 20s. At 50, I get it now. But the fragility of these boys' hearts and the fear and the ache and the love.
View all 5 comments. At first glance I thought it was going to be a stereotypical nerd and jock fall in love story. When I read the blurb for Maybe With a Chance of Certainty , I was pretty sure that the story would just be like all the other ones out there, where the high school jock - in need of tutition in order to keep his place in the team - is suddenly falling for the shy nerdy kid.
But somehow John Goode was able to create incredibly well sketched characters I immediately started caring for. They have their secrets, they are feeling broken, but they are willing to believe in a better future.
Th 4 stars! This is a story about letting yourself hope, about speaking up and about finding love. I don't remember the moment I knew I was broken, but I do know the moment I began to feel fixed. It was the day the green-eyed boy fell in love with me. I'm really looking forward to the next installment in this series! I can't wait to find out what the future holds for Kyle and Brad.

I've said it before but I'm still in awe that John is capable in turning these "book characters" into real people!! Because they really do feel like my friends.
I can't express myself enough to say what that means to me, to be able to connec BR, with Paul and Sonia re-read Re-reading this series has surprised me I can't express myself enough to say what that means to me, to be able to connect with people who take the same things at heart!! It was like walking through the high school perimiters myself!!! The writing is beautiful, so recognizable. Kyle Kyle tries to stay invisible during school-time.
He has a very specific pattern to the way he dresses. He calles it social camouflage. Brad, the high school star of the baseball team, one of the gods of high school. Two very different boys but who have a lot in common! I paused for a moment, not sure how to proceed. This was all too familiar to me, and that was throwing off what I was sure was righteous indignation. He was starting to sound like my mom. I drew back and flinched…..
It was the flinch of someone who was used to being hit. He froze instantly. His entire body looked carved out of wax as his expression morphed from anger to horrified shock, while mine dropped into a panicked cringe of abject terror.
I was rooting for Kyle and Brad was acting so stupid.. I loves this scene: This was about a life spent in fear. A fear of people finding out who and what I really was. A fear that if I ever exposed who I really was, I would be shunned and hated for it. A fear that my mom would beat me up because she suspected who I was. But honestly, how was that any different from the way I was already living my life?
I was alone, friendless, and generally considered odd by the few people who even realized I existed, so what did it matter if they found out?
I was done running—from being gay, from my mom, from myself. I was the hero of this story, and it was damn time I stated acting like I was. Spoken like a true hero!!! May 22, Ele rated it really liked it Shelves: Like…6 years late. These days I only read YA by a couple of authors. Do not worry. There is angst, humor, intense-heart wrenching moments, some mild steam because yes, most seventeen year old boys are horny AF, and the promise of huge things to come. Brilliant and terrifying at once.
The End. But I also understand. It is pretty wordy and sometimes moves in circles, but not flowery at all. After all, it is the voice of the teenager. On to the next!

At lunch he happily introduces Kyle to his girlfriend. Yeah he is a fucking cheater. Then that night he calls Kyle and talks him into letting him pick him up for school. Next day he never shows and Kyle kept waiting. View all 20 comments. Tiene la dosis justa de drama, humor y Y hay un giro en la trama que no me lo vi venir para nada.
El segundo giro I was seventeen and on the edge of an eighteen that seemed terrifying to a young man not sure what his sexuality was going to be. It just made you different, and as we all know, in high school there is nothing worse than being different. Though every TV show or movie will tell you the wacky, zany, oddball character is not only cool but a necessary component in most social settings, no one ever closed their eyes and wished they ended up being Screech.
With that opening this story, I'm sold. This story is a sweet and hopeful take on one of the most popular themes in young adult: I always have soft spot to stories with nerds; what can I say, I might border to one when I was in high school. Not truly a nerd , nerd, but I never excelled in anything else but study. So, finding story when a nerd find their happiness with the jock can bring smile to my face. As much as there are many stories with the theme, this one can still offer something fresh.
Kyle, the nerd, is living his high school days with what he does best, being invisible. But his inner monologues are witty, honest, and sometimes funny, without border on sarcastic.
Like this one I find myself chuckling few times. I truly enjoy his voice as narrator, most especially when he analyzes which one he is in regards to the characters from "The Breakfast Club". I also like the fact that Brad, the jock, is not living in a perfect world It gives a nice reason for the two boys to connect. There is a kiss oh, a tender one but it doesn't go as far as that.
This short story ends in a hopeful note but I truly think it's cruel if their story is not being told so much more. Because I want to see how Kyle and Brad steer their way into the wonderful world of first love. So I hope there is a sequel. I'm just going to add few things in this 2nd edition. The 2nd edition starts right after Brad says "Hi" Because by the end of this novella, we have Kyle standing up for himself.
He is no longer a prince waiting for his handsome knight in white armor to save him. He becomes the hero, he slays dragon by himself. And by doing so, he actually saves Brad the prince from being broken.
I will definitely be there for the sequel, since it'll be from Brad's point of view View all 10 comments. Marco Mill. I grew up on these movies and always dreamed of that fairytale ending. Kyle has spent most of his high school years being invisible.
All that ends the day Brad, baseball star and most popular guy at Foster High, asks Kyle to tutor him in history. I enjoyed their relationship, even with all the drama.
I think most of us have been there. View all 8 comments. As you walk on by Will you call my name? When you walk away He knows it.
How could he not be, he is at the mercy of an alcoholic and abusive mother. He also is aware that that feeling he has of being "different", when it becomes something that he can no longer avoid, will only make his life more difficult.
He just wants to fade away. Walk the halls of Foster High unseen, just wait these four years out unnoticed. He's good at it too, he's perfected the art of invisibility. U As you walk on by Until the day that Brad, Mr. Star Athlete and too perfect for words, approaches him about tutoring lessons. That moment will change most everything for Kyle. There is no perfect , there is no 'well adjusted'. Everyone has their own horror stories being played out behind closed doors Maybe just maybe together they can piece each other back together, and Kyle could maybe get his happy ending.
Yeah right Like it ever works out that way Brad really wants to be Kyle's hero, and never ever hurt him and save him from his loneliness and sadness. He wants to hold him and make him smile He really does, but as Kyle would say "Motherfucking Fairy Tales [ Kyle's voice was so familiar.
I think we all have in some way been that boy. The POV was so well done in this story, it's a look back, a man remembering his high school days, sad times being revisited from a seemingly better place. It felt so real. The way that even though those days are far behind us, the memories can still make us so vulnerable, turn us back into someone so scared and so lost. I loved the homage to The Breakfast Club and the 80s high school movies.
Kyle's moment of glory, and Brad's perfectly timed reckoning were straight out a John Hughes film. Made me want to pumps my fists way up in the air. John Goode writes just beautifully, he can put a lovely sentence together, and his character's emotions jump right out the page. Loved this story, will read the next one for sure. Very curious to see where Brad and Kyle go, now that they've walked triumphantly together into the sunset. When you walk on by, and you call my name!
Highly Recommend. View all 19 comments. I loved this one, a tale of the invisible school nerd Kyle and the extremely popular school jock Brad. This first book in the series is entirely from Kyle's POV. Kyle is only 'visible' to his teachers but that is his choice, he feels that the less he makes his presence known, the easier his life will be at school He's noticed Brad of course, he's the school golden boy and hot, but never the twain shall meet, or so the saying goes however he's doing his usual thing in the corridor one day head down and hurrying when a pair of feet stand in front of him and block his escape.
Brad plays football, but to carry on doing that he needs to improve his grades and get some tutoring Brad takes a chance and tries to talk to Kyle about some tutoring At first Kyle is outraged that Brad would try to play a cruel joke on him like that, but eventually realises that Brad is being sincere and does need help, so he agrees to go home with Brad after football practice. I should mention of course that Kyle definitely lives on the wrong side of town and Brad lives in a poster home for Martha Stewart Create lists, bibliographies and reviews: Search WorldCat Find items in libraries near you.
