“I bring you tidings of… DAMMIT!”
With those few words, Jack Lynch’s world would change forever. The nerdy guy from Hammond High has returned for his twentieth reunion. He’s rich, successful, and ready to re-claim the girl who got away: Rori McLeary.
There’s just one small problem… Jack is also dead. But with the help of an angel in training, his mom, and the rockin’ body of his former arch-nemesis, Jack is still going to get the girl.
He has three days to convince Rori to love him. He’s got the body he never had, the brains he always had, and Norman the geek angel on his side.
What could possibly go wrong?
Ok, so let’s start off by saying that I found this story a bit silly. Normally, I like the silliness but this was silly in a way that I think was a bit beyond my silliness quota.
At first I found the characters (mainly John Lydon) to be insipid and the general feel of the book meant that redemption was going to go towards the bad guy. That we were going to start championing him. That is something I couldn’t really get on board with.
My Boyfriend’s Back did get better as the story developed. Chrissy Olinger managed to pull it back but I think with my initial dislike it wasn’t enough to make me love this short story.
