WhippersnapperTellumo Magnamater is a fresh out of college first year English teacher at Salt Lick County High School in Kentucky He rides the bus to and from work and every day he walks to the gym behind his small efficiency apartment to exercise Perhaps because of being raised by two lesbians T. I'm giving this book four stars because it had the balls to be different It is character driven which I like and I also like the small town mentality that echoes through the story which is well written Not a lot happens during the course of the story but I did end up understanding the three main characters Tellumo who I liked Peggy who I felt sorry for and Oliver who I understood completely since I'm a crotchety old man and a lousy cook just like he is I also understood Oliver's amazement at his survival of the AIDS years That never ceases to amaze me too I'm sorry the author didn't spice up the book with a little heat now and then or at least a bit sexual tension The story really cries out for it But other than that WHIPPERSNAPPER was an enjoyable read for a lazy afternoon

Michael Rupured ↠ 9 Summary

Match Despite Tellumo and Peggy striking up a friendship at the gym neither realizes they are interested in the same man But the joke might be on both of them Oliver a retired history teacher is the original crotchety old man who hates everything and everybody especially young peop. 35This is not what I would call a romance It is actually a slice of life for three characters with very little romance included though by the end we have high hopes that our 3 mc's will find romantic happiness There were LOL moments and some truly heartbreaking moments but you should not read this expecting action of any kind But when all was said and done I enjoyed the story

Review Whippersnapper

Whippersnapper Read ✓ 9 ✓ ➸ [Reading] ➺ Whippersnapper By Michael Rupured ➭ – Eyltransferservices.co.uk Tellumo Magnamater is a fresh out of college first year English teacher at Salt Lick County High School in Kentucky He rides the bus to and from work and every day he walks to the gym behind his small Tellumo Magnamater isEllumo is attracted to older men He sets his sights on fifty something available bachelor Oliver Crumbly But Tellumo isn’t the only resident interested in OliverPeggy Tucker a widow approaching her sixtieth birthday is determined to marry again and she thinks Oliver is her perfect. From the blurb you get the idea Tellumo is interested in Oliver Peggy is interested in Oliver Oliver is kind of a misanthrope and doesn’t want to get involved with either he’s too old for Tellumo and too gay for Peggy What the blurb doesn’t tell you is that Tellumo ends up really good friends with Peggy and we get a really in depth view of her life – so she is no “evil female” out to ruin the romance between our MCs In fact I’d say the book is eually divided into thirds – Peggy Oliver and Tellumo each share a third of the bookOliver has other issues in his life – a dying friend his own fear of mortality his own past relationship demonsTellumo is like a breath of fresh air to both Peggy and Oliver – offering his youth and open heart to help them healPeggy has her own issues and secrets wants and desires and they don’t all stem around OliverIn a nutshell this book is NOTHING like I thought it would be There is NO on page sex the couple doesn’t even get together until 80% in most of the story is simply the telling of the lives of our characters and slowly introducing them to one another – which doesn’t happen until 60 % in or soIf you’re interested in a look into the lives of 3 interesting people each of whom has something invested in the other in one way or another and like that several of the characters are gay Tellumo has 2 mothers then this is the story for youIf you’re looking for a “traditional boy meets boy” romance – this is not that bookThe writing is excellent and the stories are compelling – but I’m not sure I’d really call this a “romance” although it is clearly a portion of this bookAs a result of the uniue flavor of the book I’m having a hard time rating it so I won’t I’ll give it high marks for writing and leave it at that
