An Indie Next List Pick! In his first contemporary teen novel, critically acclaimed author and two-time Edgar Award finalist Lamar Giles spotlights the consequences of societal pressure, confronts toxic masculinity, and explores the complexity of what it means to be a “real man.” Del has had a crush on Kiera Westing since kindergarten. And now, during their junior year, she’s finally available. So when Kiera volunteers for an opportunity at their church, Del’s right behind her. Though he quickly realizes he’s inadvertently signed up for a Purity Pledge. His dad thinks his wires are crossed, and his best friend, Qwan, doesn’t believe any girl is worth the long game. But Del’s not about to lose his dream girl, and that’s where fellow pledger Jameer comes in. He can put in the good word. In exchange, Del just has to get answers to the Pledgers’ questions…about sex ed. With other boys circling Kiera like sharks, Del needs to make his move fast. But as he plots and plans, he neglects to ask the most important question: What does Kiera want? He can’t think about that too much, though, because once he gets the girl, it’ll all sort itself out. Right?

The story of Fragile Blue interweaves three different themes. Almost everyone has had some surprising experiences connected to their conscious and unconsciousness awareness. The first thread in this story starts by painting a brief picture of some of these subtle and faintly remembered experiences. Such observations by their very nature are neither true nor false because they cannot be analysed within a purely objective framework. The second thread in the story is conjectured around the possibility that intelligent species at a cosmic level may have developed some form of Mayday Principle. Such a principle may be built around similar values in human culture. Within such a Mayday Principle, when someone or some group, finds themselves in extreme danger and appeal for help they should be given as much assistance as possible. The level of that assistance will reflect on the maturity of the group giving the assistance rather than the receiver. The third thread in the story looks at the possibilities of how our global civilisation could metamorphose into a spacefaring civilisation. The forces that are shaping our present and our future seem to be moving our species towards a global civilisation however defined. This process, of Homo sapiens evolving through global civilisation towards a spacefaring one, is seen to be tested by the iron law of survivability.

It just got real. Dana Jenkins has written some steamy love scenes in her time but nothing even comes close to the real-life experience she shares with Scott Masters. On a weekend getaway together, the younger man introduces her to pleasures even the forty-nine year old romance author never knew existed, including a recipe for fruit salad found in no cook book, EVER. Scott has whet her appetite for more than just bananas but now he’s hungry for something else: a longer time commitment from Dana. This isn’t just a passing craving for him anymore. Her insatiable desire is infectious and he’s not sure he can settle for just a fling. Does Dana have the recipe for his long-term satisfaction? Or will a visit from Dana’s past cause them both irreparable heartburn?
