ONE TO WATCH (05/11/2013)

Golden Boy by Abigail Tarttellin will be released on May 21st to resounding reviews.

From twenty five year old rising literary star Abigail Tarttelin comes a compelling novel about a boy, a secret, and the single traumatizing event that sends his seemingly wonderful life into a tailspin....

Goodreads wrote the following:

Max Walker is a golden boy. Attractive, intelligent, and athletic, he’s the perfect son, the perfect friend. He’s even really nice to his little brother, Daniel, a decidedly imperfect ten-year-old.

Karen Walker is a beautiful, highly successful criminal lawyer, who works hard to maintain the facade of effortless excellence she has constructed over the years. Now that the boys are getting older, now that she won’t have as much control, she worries that the facade might soon begin to crumble.

Steve Walker is also a successful prosecutor, so much so that he is running for election to Parliament. The spotlight of the media is about to encircle their lives.

But the Walkers have a secret. Max was born with forty-six XX chromosomes and forty-six XY chromosomes, which makes him intersex. He identifies as a boy and so has been raised lovingly that way.........until...


Reviewers have labeled Golden Boy a remarkable tale of a family in crisis, a gripping heartfelt portrait told with compassion and
understanding and a little joy added to the mix...Sounds like a winning combination..


Golden Boy can be pre-ordered from Amazon by using the Amazon Search Box on the Sidebar.
