    One thought on “Bad Boy”

    1. Incredibly dated, very brief novel about a boy who discovers that his best friend is gay and sublimates his own homosexual desire by being violent in the hockey rink. Most of the action occurs off the page, and Wieler makes the mistake of focusing her narrative on a colourless protagonist and making the gay best friend storyline about anyone but the gay character himself.The gay themes are fairly progressive for the time of publication, and Wieler is generally sympathetic to Tully, but there are [...]

    2. The GoodReads review function asks me what I learned from this book. Here is a list of things I learned:1.) It is totally a good idea to use the phrases "the blond boy" and "the boy" to refer to your characters, rather than pronouns or their first names.2.) Point of view does not need to be consistent. You can spend most of the book in your protagonist's third person limited point of view, switching occasionally to his best friend's, but when you feel like it you can also switch to the point of [...]

    3. A.J. Brandiosa isn’t close to anyone like he is to Tulsa. When A.J. and Tulsa both make the Triple A hockey team, everything seems perfect. Until A.J. learns a secret Tulsa wasn’t ready to share: that he’s gay. Despite being twenty years old, Wieler’s Bad Boy remains thoughtful and fresh. When A.J. uncovers Tulsa’s secret, the familiar narrative of the underdog sports team is complicated by questions of sexual identity. Much to her credit, Wieler writes a very human novel with complex [...]

    4. A.J. Brandiosa and his best friend Tully have finally made it! They're on the Moose Jaw Saskathewan AAA hockey team The Cyclones. All that working out has finally gotten rid of A.J.'s pesky baby fat and he's starting to like the way that he looks and the way that he can accomplish things on the ice that have always eluded him. Tully has always been the popular showboat both on and off the rink. But when A.J. gets a bit too physical in an early game and gets labelled as a "Bad Boy" and the team's [...]

    5. This was a rec from a friend of mine who knew I would like the hockey part if nothing else. If this hadn't been recommended to me, I never would have found it on account of it being published in 1989. And it really shows - this book doesn't date well. A lot of the views are still held today but they're not quite as acceptable as it is in the book to voice them.From a book POV, I have to say that I didn't enjoy it that much. AJ's homophobia was unpleasant to read and I wanted to shake him half th [...]

    6. I always worry about queer lit from a certain era, you know? But Wieler surprised me. AJ reacts to the news that his best friend is gay exactly the way a boy his age would - especially one from his time. Even all these years later, though, AJ's response rang true for me. The author handles Tully's queerness with grace and respect, and part of that respect is acknowledging that people can be crappy about it. For such an early addition to the queer YA canon, I am so, so impressed that it doesn't r [...]
