Summer Sons is an edge of your seat thrill ride of a Southern gothic novel. It is an adrenaline rush full of queer love, illegal backroad drag racing, malevolent spirits, dark academics, and unrelenting grief. When Andrew goes to Nashville to investigate the cause of his more than best friend Eddie's death, he has to be very careful that he doesn't meet the same end, all while grappling with Eddie's malevolent spirit that has possessed him. A fascinating examination of what it means to be a man coming to terms with his queerness, after the love of his life has died.
Andrew's world is cleaved in two when his best friend Eddie dies from an apparent suicide. He then inherits the life Eddie left behind: a million dollar fortune, a plantation manor, a drag racing group of friends, an unfinished thesis on rural Tennessee folklore, and a very familiar revenant that haunts his every step. This book is a nonstop thrill ride of subplots: a best friend to lovers romance, a backwoods drag racing, a murder mystery, a survival story, a Southern gothic horror tale, a ghost story. Above all else, Summer Sons is a look at coming to terms with your identity after an unimaginable loss, and accepting grief as a weight you can't outrun. Gripping, thrilling, and intoxicating, Summer Sons is the perfect Halloween read. - Jessi
