Encouraged to find him, by Cody’s father, Scott sets out on a journey that allows him to have some interesting adventures and introduces him to some eccentric characters. His interactions with these new people help him to discover more about himself and his strengths. When he finds Cody, he has the chance to be there for him and they discover how strong their feelings are for each other.
“The Auteur” is a very powerfully written coming-of-age novel. The characters in the story have some very strong attributes that are mixed in with their weaknesses. It was very interesting to watch them evolve as individuals. Being homosexual young adults puts lot more stress in their lives. Working together they learn to support each other.
Mixed in with the story are some very humorous scenes that involve the pornography industry. Coupled with many explicit sex scenes, this novel is not for the faint of heart. I think that young adults, especially those dealing with issues regarding their sexuality, will really relate to this story. It also might make their lives seem a lot easier. I highly recommend this novel, “The Auteur” by Ward Wood.
