Let's Hear It for the Boy

Let's Hear It for the Boy - T.A. Webb Beautiful, heartbreaking and stunning!

Not many words can describe this book. T.A Webb has done a wonderful job delivering such an amazing and heart-wrenching short story. I was skeptical about reading this. I find these books don't normally appeal to me. But for once I saw why I should be a bit more open. This was done with taste and had an amazing character that showed what love is. It was that simple.

He was my boy. No Romeo, but he was my love and one man show.

It was such an inspirational story and there were many times that I could feel my heart jumping. The love in this book is amazing.

The next day he was gone.


If you never believed in real love you should read this. I have always believed you cannot "move on" when someone dies. Only live with what they left with you, their heart.


“He’s a special man. I won’t hurt him.”

Auntie Social and Paul show that when someone dies they should not be forgotten. They should be embraced and loved as if they were alive. Patrick showed that one time without can lead to horrible things.

“He didn’t use a condom,” he whispered. “What if I get that gay cancer or whatever they are talking about on the news? What if I get the clap? My dad will kill me.”


I think this book will stay with me for a long, long time. It's not one that can or should leave you. It shows what HIV can do to someone and how it can leave many devastated.

Let's hear it for the boy
Oh, let's give the boy a hand
Let's hear it for my baby
You know you gotta understand
Maybe he's no Romeo
But he's my loving one man show
Let's hear it for the boy!
