He takes Del's little brother Jimmy under his wing, but things change when Jimmy places second in a national photography contest.
One of the photos is a sexually charged image of Ben that fuels much gossip and speculation in their small town of Merit, Wisconsin. You know where Ben ends up from the beginning. They mystery is what happened to Jimmy, and not even Ben knows the whole story, though he probably knows more than most.
It felt regressive at times, given how bigoted and unaccepting the people of Merit are. But the novel makes a valid point in the novel that not every town is progressive, and right now being born somewhere where being gay is okay is still a matter of good luck. Ben is profoundly affected by people making assumptions about him, so he tries to refrain from making assumptions about others.
He's also pretty clueless about when people are obviously into him. At the same time, he has his own prejudices that color his perceptions. Although sometimes he is clearly right, because Jimmy's dad is a piece of work.
A Different Kind of LGBTQ Book: The Sin-Eater’s Confession by Ilsa Bick – wrapped up in books
The main weakness is that the plot gets increasingly preposterous as the story goes on. I don't want to refer to enlisting as a bone-headed thing. Ilsa J. Bick is pretty fair about the pros and cons of the armed forces and why people might choose to enlist during a time of war.
This is the first book I've read by Ilsa J. Bick, though I know her Ashes books are very popular. It's got a great voice and raises some interesting questions, but it's pretty messy.
