'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...

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
The author's first novel Jack of Hearts instantly became part of the queer canon. His latest novel addresses the aftermath of coming out of the closet.
