   (1 review)
Genres: General Fiction
Sub-genres: Drama

Just as Billy Roberts is beginning to think he might be able to begin revealing his true self to those closest to him, he is finding out that those closest to him have secrets of their own. His parents are growing further apart as his father's health is failing and his mother is falling under the spell of a charismatic homophobe.  His boyfriend is hiding something that could destroy someone's life.  His best friend is being driven over the edge by his abusive family. And through it all, Billy is being bullied by someone he once considered a friend.  Welcome to W.A.R..

While it would be helpful to read the first four parts of W.A.R. to fully enjoy this portion of the story, this book can be enjoyed on its own.

In the fifth book of this series the author treats us to the continuing saga of Billy, Brett, and Dustin. We follow their sometimes violent, sometimes catastrophic, confrontations, reconciliations, and chaotic journey towards adulthood. It is nothing but real and totally believable.

The story is crafted with such care and skill that the twists, turns, and revelations will nearly always catch you out and take you by surprise. The characterisation is superb and extends beyond the three principle roles, to include well drawn secondary personalities in Billy's mum and dad, Bretts mother, and Joey McKenzie. Even the cameo appearances of Justin's family, Joey's father Jack and Pastor Carl show real people. Maybe that is why these books have such an avid fan base and following.

It was a thoroughly enjoyable read and I, like a number of other people, look forward to the sixth and final book. I should add, with a mixture of eagerness to see how it all works out, and sadness that it will finally come to an end. What better recommendation is there for reading these books?
