'My first time getting it in the butt was kind of weird. I think it's going to be weird for everyone's first time, though.'
Meet Jack Rothman. He's seventeen and loves partying, makeup and boys - sometimes all at the same time.
His sex life makes him the hot topic for the high school gossip machine. But who cares? Like Jack always says, 'it could be worse'.
He doesn't actually expect that to come true.
But after Jack starts writing an online sex advice column, the mysterious love letters he's been getting take a turn for the creepy.
Jack's secret admirer knows everything: where he's hanging out, who he's sleeping with, who his mum is dating. They claim they love Jack, but not his unashamedly queer lifestyle. They want him to curb his sexuality, or they'll force him.
As the pressure mounts, Jack must unmask his stalker before their obsession becomes genuinely dangerous...

Praise for Jack of Hearts (and Other Parts)

Notă biografică

L. C. Rosen, also known as Lev Rosen, has written several books for adults and children, including the critically acclaimed Jack of Hearts (And Other Parts). He lives in New York City with his husband and a very small cat.


Humane, sex-positive writing of the funniest, filthiest and most heartening kind.
Jack of Hearts might be the most important queer novel of the decade
Contemporary sex advice meets mystery in this high school story of bullying and being true to oneself . . . an essential addition to library collections that serve teens.
Jack of Hearts (And Other Parts) is the sex ed class you didn't get in high school - positive, frank and inclusive, but also hilarious, heartfelt and impossibly fun. This book is like a hug that also slaps you on the ass (in the consensual flirtatious sexy way).
A fierce, frank high school thriller which depicts gay intimacy in a sex positive and unapologetic way.
This book is filth
It's the book about high school that gives you the sex ed class desperately lacking from high school education.
The affirming, sex-positive, brilliant new book that puts the "adult" into young adult literature
Readers will be talking about Jack for years to come
I know that when I was coming out I would have loved to have been able to pick up a book that did not ignore or demonise gay sex
Jack of Hearts' is a confidently queer story that breaks away from the stereotypes to create refreshing and relatable characters
The book I needed growing up as an isolated gay teen in a straight boy's world
A joyously sex positive exploration through teenage life with an unashamedly unapologetic queer hero
Dispenses sex advice that could be vital to young adult readers
Tackles subjects that many would rather bury and pretend teens don't want (or need) to talk about
A sex-positive and thoughtful romp with humour and heart
A bold, inclusive exploration of teen sexuality that, propelled by Jack's brazen voice, never feels preachy
Rosen (The Memory Wall) creates memorable protagonists and brings a fresh, frank voice to his YA debut
