: Sending Jack Off To Jesus

Author: Sara York

My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

From the Publisher:

Jack Miller has more than he could ask for with Andrew as his boyfriend, but it’s being taken away from him and there isn’t anything he can do. His father knows he’s gay, and his mother wants him to have sex with a girl to make sure he’s not mistaken.

Andrew Collins has found the perfect home in foster care with Cole and Melinda Kemp, but it won’t last. The DA thinks his parents have proven they’ve changed, but Andrew doesn’t believe the change will last.

Just when Jack and Andrew think it can’t get any worse, it does. Jack’s father sends him to New Life Christian Camp, a program that promises to pray the gay away. But Andrew has it worse than Jack as Andrew’s father takes out his anger on him, leaving Andrew near death.

Both Jack and Andrew are lost to each other, their lives in tatters all because their parents wanted to pray the gay away.

Warning: This book contains graphic details, including abuse by physical abuse by adults.

My View

This book takes up immediately where we left Jack and Andrew at the end of Pray the Gay Away. All Jacks freedoms have been taken away. He attends school, football and then home to pray. His father has taken to following him around town to make sure he behaves and he is allowed no contact with his friends.  Pastor Miller refuses to entertain the idea that he has a gay son and nobody in the house is allowed to talk about.

Andrew is in foster care with what he considers to be the perfect family. They make him feel welcome and he is finally eating regularly.  Much to his surprise and delight they are LGBT friendly and for the first time in a long time he feels some peace. Sadly his parents are already doing everything possible to ensure he has to return to them and their control.

Jack and Andrew try to sneak moments together at school but it is becoming more and more difficult and they are both feeling disheartened.  Just as they think things can’t get any more out of control Jacks father announces that he is sending him away to New Life Christian Camp where they will pray the gay away and cure him. At Jacks refusal his father threatens him with the one thing he knows his son won’t fight against and the matter is settled.

Not knowing how long Jack will be away the boys steal one last time together where words of love are said and promises are made. They are both lost and heartbroken and you just want to wrap them both up and take them somewhere safe.

When Jack arrives at the camp the tone of his stay is quickly set and he soon fears for his safety. The only thought that gets him through the days are of seeing Andrew again but Andrew has his own problems to deal with when his parents commit the ultimate betrayal. If Jack is to escape with his life he might have to rely on someone he didn’t dare dream would save him.

This book leaves us with a massive cliff hanger!!  Hurry up book 3!!!
