Strings Attached by Nick Nolan is free today from the Amazon Kindle store, and has received an average user rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars based on 59 customer reviews. You can pick up your free copy by clicking here.
As a side note, this one is notable, not because of the subject matter (which is a lot different from other free Amazon offerings), but it is a book published under Amazon’s own publishing arm, AmazonEncore. I would call this a direct attack on the Bog Five publishers in the ongoing reformatting of the publishing world. I think this is a great development which should (hopefully) lead to better prices for us consumers.
Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
Closeted teenager Jeremy is sent to live with wealthy relatives after his mother enters rehab. Struggling to fit into the posh world of Ballena Beach, Jeremy joins the high school swim team, dates a popular girl, and begins to think he may have landed in paradise—until his great aunt Katharine starts to dictate his every move … and a late-night phone call insinuates that his father’s accidental death was not so accidental after all.
As Jeremy grows accustomed to the veneer of a fabulous life, so grows his need for answers—as well as the danger of immeasurable harm. Weaving together a murder mystery, sexual ambiguity, and characters with hidden identities and agendas , Nick Nolan offers readers a deliciously witty page-turner about the “puppet” who wishes only to be a real boy. Strings Attached is also a surprisingly heartfelt story about coming-of-age and coming out—not necessarily in that order.
