Another Five Star Review For Hold Your Light
Friday, October 22, 2010  2:10:00 AM

Literary Fiction
5 star review of "Hold Your Light"

Review "Hold Your Light "    *****

Rodney Albert Black is a character. I don't simply mean that Rodney is a character in Hold Your Light, the newest piece of autobiographical fiction written by novelist Wayne Bien. I mean Rodney is a character, and quite frankly the world needs more characters. Hold Your Light is not only a charming read, but also a message for kids struggling at a young age with the choice of homosexuality.

 

Rodney's a cool kid, quirky, and intelligent. While horses are a huge part of his life, his weight problem leaves him spending the bulk of his time reading in bed, listening to music, and thinking about his classmates. Not all of his classmates, just the boys. This is something that his parents won't abide, and are simply not prepared to raise a gay child. Much to Rodney's pleasure he is sent to an all boys military academy. That will fix him.

 

Hold Your Light is an inspiring, coming of age story told quickly and without regrets. Rodney's journey toward manhood is helped along by a number of generous adults seemingly eager to help, or at least straighten him out. Following a short stint at a Southern military academy, Rodney returns to his first school and boyfriend, and discovers Rocket. Rocket is a gorgeous horse that has a remarkable affect on Rodney’s self-confidence.

Rodney is not the clichéd “queer” boy you might expect, but rather the first to throw a punch, and the only student with the courage to mount Rocket. Not unlike Rodney, Rocket is known to throw a punch or two himself.

 

Rocket changes Rodney and his newfound confidence is undeniable. This is a very well written, fun read that can be enjoyed by readers of any age.
