Book Review

Fifteen Hundred Miles from the Sun


Review By:Hendrik van den Bergh

Jonny did one amazing job with his debut novel. The story is interesting, intense, funny, well-written, and a page-turner. I was hooked from the first page.

Juliàn Luna, known as Jules, has had one of the worst ways of coming out to his friends. He tweeted about it in his real Twitter account in a reckless moment. He wanted to keep it a secret until he graduated and moved away from Texas. One reckless decision has changed his whole life, but not completely in a bad way.

Jules has a Twitter crush who he follows on his secret account. Somehow did his crush find his real account and Jules received a DM from him the next morning after coming out to the world.

His twitter crush, Mat, has guided him through everything and supported him. Mat is staying in Los Angeles. Through the distance did they keep in contact on FaceTime and other social media platforms.

Will the distance keep them from meeting in real life?

I loved the story and the characters. We must never push someone to make a decision they do not want to make. They must be responsible for their own choices.

I would recommend this book for all LGBT members and for those who are struggling to come out.

Definitely, a must-read.
