Product description


"An honest, emotional, funny, romantic, dark, hopeful, musical gem of a novel. I know that's a lot of adjectives, but it'd be a disservice to leave any out." —Adi Alsaid, author of Let's Get Lost and Never Always Sometimes

"The Temptation of Adam is the sort of novel you finish and immediately wish you could read again for the first time. It’s profound without being preachy, funny without pandering, and thoughtful in a way that few debut novels manage. Dave Connis is a writer to watch." —Bryan Bliss, author of Meet Me Here

On the surface, The Temptation of Adam is the story of a teenaged boy with *teenage-boy* problems, but the true brilliance of this novel lies in the way it uses heartache, humor, and music to reveal LOVE as both Healer-of-Wounds and Kick-in-the-Pants toward greatness. Highly recommend." —Nic Stone, author of Dear Martin

"Dave Connis's The Temptation of Adam confronts a difficult topic with honesty, humor, and heart. The friendships and love that form amongst the misfit cast of teens trying to overcome addiction are an important reminder of our power to destroy or give hope to those tangled in our messy lives."—Randy Ribay, author of An Infinite Number of Parallel Universes

"Connis emphasizes the importance of battling addiction with transparency, communication, and self-forgiveness. While the teens find support in one another, their recovery also relies on their relationships with adults who help them to set boundaries and goals. Impressively, this novel rarely feels preachy. Despite the main character’s obsession with pornography, there is very little graphic sexual content, and the teens’ dangerous activities, including drug and alcohol use and cutting, are never glorified. . . . VERDICT This debut may ultimately get lost among the multitude of recent books about teens with mental health issues, but its positive messages will make a worthwhile addition to most teen collections." —School Library Journal

2.0 out of 5 starsA decent portrayal of addiction, even if the second act is unfulfilling.
