The Paper Boy

James A Lyons

The Paper Boy is a comedic LGBTQ+ young adult novel following fifteen-year-old Tim Johnson as he prepares for the start of the Greenwood Secondary summer holidays. Feeling that he is fading into the background, he draws up a ‘cool list’ in order to reinvent himselfbefore the new school year. Over the course of a week however, everything he touches somehow ends in disaster. Tim’s reinvention would be easier if he didn’t have to battle teenage awkwardness, confused feelings around his sexuality, and a mum who seems to embarrass the family without even trying.
