Dear Diary: Pride (Dear Diary, #2) by Allison Cassatta
If you read Dear Diary, you know it ends with Chris taking Josh to his prom as his date. He's nervous because it's still high school and he knows what happened to the last guy who came out in high school, but this is important to him and Josh is important to him. They are lowkey at first, but then Chris asks Josh to dance, they are confronted by a couple of the jocks and after Chris' friend stands up beside them, all of them are escorted out of the dance!
This is such a good book, it If you read Dear Diary, you know it ends with Chris taking Josh to his prom as his date. This is such a good book, it was sweet, it was painful, it's a reminder of what goes wrong in life when you are young and idealistic, but what can be right about that too. While the first book was about Chris just being comfortable in where he was at that time, this book is more about where he goes now, who he chooses to let control who he is and what he expresses.
The supporting characters are so good - his parents are amazing. And Josh? While Chris had moments of doubt in his own mind, when Josh asks him if it would have been easier had they not met, his doubts are gone because being with Josh just feels so right because he's happy and calm when he's with him. I admit Josh asking that made me cry, as did the experiences Chris had with the jocks in his town after prom, but the people who helped him surprised him and they are a definite sign of hope that not everyone is close minded!
I don't know if any further books are planned for these two and their journey, I'd be happy to read them if there were because I really love these characters! Feb 08, Havan Fellows rated it it was amazing Shelves: m-m-romance , series , tear-jerker. Allison Cassatta has a gift of doing romance in a non-traditional way in my opinion. What I mean by that is she gets the real stuff - the stuff most romances sugar coat or completely shy away from - and she puts it in there for us to feel, rejoice in, flinch from and come out better for reading her book.

And I hope that Ms. Cassatta sees fit to write about them again, I haven't had my fill yet. Dear Diary: Pride is the sequel to Dear Diary - and they are both so worth not just a single read - both of them have high reread value in my opinion. Feb 20, Becky Condit rated it it was amazing.

Ms Cassatta wrote this book because her fans asked for more about Chris and Josh, but be careful what you wish for.
A fiction author can write fantasy or she can write a reality-based story. Ms Cassatta chose the latter and it is a better book for it.

This is a sequel to "Dear Diary" published June, Both are worth the read. Mar 17, Sadonna rated it really liked it Shelves: mm , coming-out , pdf , contemporary. Really liked this follow-up to Dear Diary. There was no sugar-coating the fall-out from Josh and Chris going to Prom together. Once again, really loved Chris's family and of course Josh. Very realistic portrayal of Chris's desire to get through graduation and get out of town.
I think a lot of kids experience that desire to leave their old "selves" behind and start fresh.europeschool.com.ua/profiles/vifiliv/mujer-busca-hombre-bs.php

In a world of more and more always-online shooters, Anthem felt like it had the talent behind it to deliver something truly fresh to the genre, something that could capture the hearts and minds of Destiny and Warframe fans, becoming a fixture for years to come. Now, here we are. Anthem has been available, in full, for about three weeks, now, and already we have to ask ourselves: is it going to survive?
On March 6th, Anthem was streamed on a peak of channels, approximately the same as the game it was meant to supplant, Destiny 2, averages now, 18 months after its release. That was the lowest such number for Anthem since it became available, and the trend is still pointing down. So, how did we get here? Why is Anthem struggling, and what can it do to reverse its momentum? All of these titles have set the standard for what can be accomplished, narratively, through a video game.
They feature richly detailed worlds, complex characters, meaningful choices, and fantastic, exhilarating arcs.
