Book Excerpt :

William di Canzio’s Alec, inspired by Maurice, E. M. Forster’s secret novel of a happy same-sex love affair, tells the story of Alec Scudder, the gamekeeper Maurice Hall falls in love with in Forster’s classic, published only after the author's death. Di Canzio follows their story past the end of Maurice to the front lines of battle in World War I and beyond. Forster, who tried to write an epilogue about the future of his characters, was stymied by the radical change that the Great War brought to their world. With the hindsight of a century, di Canzio imagines a future for them and a past for Alec—a young villager possessed of remarkable passion and self-knowledge. Alec continues Forster’s project of telling stories that are part of “a great unrecorded history.” Di Canzio’s debut novel is a love story of epic proportions, at once classic and boldly new.

Book Short Summary:

“I’d never met Alec Brock, but nothing felt more real in my sixteen years of existence than the insane, breathtaking, overwhelming feeling of loving him—of being loved by him. If only he knew who I was…” Linda González has given up small-town life with her mom to pursue a better education while living with her dad in Los Angeles. At least, that’s what she let her family believe. The truth is that she’s in love...with an 18-year-old pop star! Alec Brock has been her cyber boyfriend for over a year now, and Linda has finally closed the gap in their long-distance relationship. But when she surprises Alec in LA, he has no idea who she is. In this terrifying turn of events, Linda has nobody to rely on but the real Alec himself. Now she’s torn between chasing the truth about the guy she fell in love with, and trying to win the heart of the guy he was supposed to be. Content warning: The Alec Brock Series was intended for readers aged 13 and up, and contains mild profanity, some underage drinking, and sexual situations (no nudity). It also presents the realities of living and coping with a mental health condition (such as anxiety, panic attacks, eating disorders, depression, suicide risk, and PTSD). REVIEW “This book was so good that I literally read it in less than a day. Everyone wants to fall in love with the rockstar, but this is a fresh take on it that really explores the complexities of falling for a persona online.” — Shelly X. Leonn, YA Horror and Thriller Author “The book is equal parts romance and mystery. With a catfish lurking around the corner, waiting for Linda and Alec to make their first moves is just as suspenseful as trying to figure out who is the Impostor.” — Ashley Jean, Romance Author “There is no shortage of swoony moments in this book, and you'll find yourself quickly falling in love with Alec Brock right alongside Linda. The chemistry between the two main characters is palpable, and you will root for Linda and her hap
