When fifteen year old Jake Allister learns the new neighbor in his apartment complex is an elderly man from Germany named Mr. Wagner, he fears the worst. The guy's old enough to have survived World War II, and to Jake's young mind, that makes him suspect. Because Mr. Wagner isn't Jewish, Jake assumes the man must have been part of the Nazi regime who tortured and killed millions before he was born.

Jake isn't religious, by any stretch of the imagination, and neither is his mother. He had to learn about the Holocaust at school; now he distrusts anything German, including Mr. Wagner. Then he sees the old man watching him and his boyfriend Thad make out in the parking lot. Jake justknowsthe guy is a Nazi.

But when he finally gets invited into Mr. Wagner's apartment, Jake discovers Jews weren't the only ones who suffered during the Holocaust. For the first time, he begins to grasp the scope of the tragedy that unfurled during the war ... and what it meant to be Jewish -- or gay -- in Nazi Germany.

Informazioni sull'autore

J. Tomas is a pseudonym, I'll admit it up front, under which I publish gay YA fiction. I write gay erotic romance as J.M. Snyder and publish non-gay fiction, nonfiction, and poetry as J.T. Marie. You can email me at who am I? A writer, a reader, a poet. A video game nerd ~ I heart Final Fantasy, Tomb Raider, and Legend of Zelda. A cat owner. A movie goer, music lover, boyband groupie. A queer author who remembers all too well the pains of high school, first love, and how it felt to ride the school bus when all the "cool" kids had their own car. Who knows what it's like to be different in a school of clones, to feel different, look different, act different.Who wants to put those feelings down on paper so others know they aren't alone.More specifically, I live in Virginia with two very spoiled cats. I have a day job that's not too bad, and I've always wanted to be a writer, so I write.

The Man Next Door

By J. Tomas

Fifteen year old Jake Allister came to the breakfast table with his gaze glued to his cell phone as he read the latest text from his boyfriend Thad. With his free hand, he smoothed down his shock of thick, dark hair absently. It wasn’t even 7:00 in the morning yet, and already he’d exchanged a half dozen texts with his boy.

As he slipped into a seat at the table, his mother glanced over from the stove. Put that thing away, she chided.

Thad texted me, Jake explained. He sent a quick reply—ok c u soon—before tucking the phone into his back pocket.

At this hour? His mother scrambled the last of the eggs and scraped them onto a plate beside a stack of buttered toast. With concise movements, she deposited the plate in front of Jake and stuck the pan in the sink. Don’t you two ever run out of things to say?

Jake grinned as he bit into a piece of toast. He was in love—he never got tired of hearing from Thad, or talking to him, or about him, much to his mother’s dismay. I’m going over to his place after school, he said, diving into the eggs.

At the sink, his mother cut off the water she was running to wash the dishes and gave him a stern look. "Are
