    1 thought on “Inclination”

    1. I’m a huge Mia Kerick fan. I’ve read most of her books and I have more on my tbr waiting for me to read. I’ve always enjoyed her work but Intervention was the turning point for me. Since then, I’ve eagerly awaited news on her newest releases and always done my best to keep my eye out for her books. So when she told me about a Christian YA m/m romance that she was writing, I knew I would have to give it a shot because I just happen to be Catholic like the MC in the book. And right now I [...]

    2. Wow.This book. Oh my goodness, this book. What can I say? Mia Kerrick does it again, so wonderfully, beautifully well. I have a great love for well written YA books, I feel often times they have more depth to them than adult novels in a strange way. Maybe because the characters are just heading towards their adult lives and independence, maybe because they have the whole world before them, theirs but for the right choices. I don't know, but I find the characters often very engaging. Mia Kerrick [...]

    3. I'm not Catholic, but I am an orthodox Christian and what Mia has written is very very close to what pretty much every gay Christian youth has felt and gone through. I would actually recommend this book to every youth pastor out there so they can understand what some of the kids under their care are going through.

    4. Realizing he liked boys sends Anthony Del Vechio on a search for his soul He has been raised in a Catholic church and loves his youth Group Our Way. Everything he has been taught goes against what he is now feeling. He sets out doing a lot of research and trying his best to change how he feels, then realizes it’s how he is made and can’t be changed.This story is such a breath of fresh air from other young adult stories about young men figuring out or growing up gay. His family doesn’t toss [...]

    5. To say that I loved this book is the understatement of the century.Honestly, I can't think of another book like this one.I've read it because I was intrigued. How can a Christian gay boy can find the love of God in his life ? What does he feel when he reads the Bible ? How would others Christians react to his announcement ? This is the story of a young South Korean adopted in an Italian family gay boy, Anthony. Yeah, I know. This starts rough. Adding to that the fact that he has four younger sis [...]

    6. On the surface, Anthony has the perfect life, a loving family, good friends, and his faith. Yet he has sleepless nights, worried about one thing he cannot change - he is gay. And Anthony, like so many young gay teens is trying to make sense of who he is while the world tells him what he is, being gay, is an abomination. The Catholic Church is pretty clear on its position about homosexuality, so Anthony can either hide it, or reject his religion. Those are the typical paths. Anthony, with help fr [...]

    7. INCLINATION is a story whose time has come. It is a timely story. It is a timeless story. This is what it means to grow up a gay teen in America today for, maybe not everyone, but for quite a few. Friendships come. Friendships go. Gay stays. Throw in growing up in a religious household and navigating thru the (imho) religious and political B.S. Hate Mongering and Bible misquoting that is a constant barrage at today's gay people and it is no wonder there is so much suicide. Mia Kerick writes char [...]

    8. I was very lucky to be given a review copy of "Inclination" by Mia Kerick in exchange for an honest review Not a hard thing to do, it is a gem!I highly recommend this book to teens who may be looking for answers to sometimes difficult questions or those teens looking for guidance. I think parents would also benefit from reading it by seeing these topics from a teens perspective. Mia has again managed to speak in the voice of a teen, to send a positive message to teens who may be struggling with [...]

    9. After receiving my copy of “Inclination” I was skeptical to say the least. Mixing religion with a homosexual character is a tricky subject. When I actually got involved in the story, however, I was amazed at the depth of the characters. A lot of my past came rushing back and I forgot the story was ever about Anthony Duck Young Del Vecchio. Mia Kerick took a risk with such a touchy topic, but she nailed the emotions of young Anthony to a ‘T.’ With this issue at the forefront of America, i [...]

    10. There are a few things to know before you decide if this is the book for you.First, this book is written as a first person present narration. For some people this is hard to read. (Read a sample before you buy it if you are picky about writing styles.) It’s well done here. It reads sort of like a diary or journal, but in the present tense, sort of like you are just glimpsing into the brain of Anthony as he goes through life.Second, this is definitely a YA novel. There is almost no intimacy of [...]

    11. When I think about God I think about an all-inclusive God, not a partially inclusive God. Saying that I think that we have made God look less than because as society we have such a split vision of what He will approve or not approve. Mia Kerick has capture an essential truth with this book , in my perspective , organize so called religion has separate us from the true meaning of being a Christian and has separate our brothers and sisters of the feeling of that inclusiveness. Anthony is conflicte [...]

    12. If you know a young person (or any age for that matter) who is gay and who is trying to come to terms with what that means in their relationship with God, then this is a must read book. Honestly, I’d have to say that this is the most important story I’ve read on the subject to date.I can tell that the author, Mia Kerick, has done extensive research of the Bible and I love how she gives a portion of scripture and then her character, David, explains what he feels God’s intent was as it perta [...]

    13. I'm not overly religious, so I wasn't sure this would be the book for me. But Mia Kerick has written the same compelling kinds of guys as in her other books. I think LGBT teens who are very Christian would really like this book because it clearly explains why the Bible does NOT say that acting on your homosexuality is sinful. I like the way Mia Kerick uses some words from the Bible, some lyrics from songs, and some heartfelt prayers to make the story come alive. This book is a little different t [...]

    14. The time for a book like Inclination has surely come. Anthony Del Vecchio's struggle with coming out as a Christian is poignant and relatable even if you are not very religious. It is a similar type of book to The God Box by Alex Sanchez. More books like this need to be available to all teens, not just LGBT ones. Do not miss this book.

    16. For so many young people, coming to terms with being gay involves an agony of shame and confusion. For a Christian, brought up with the unequivocal message that homosexuality is a sin, it can be torment. This is a sensitive subject, no doubt about that, but one I feel to be incredibly important. Mia Kerick certainly hasn't shied away from it in this story. She tackles the issue head-on, and with a depth of compassion and understanding that impressed me no end.On the surface, sixteen-year-old Ant [...]

    17. Original review on Molly LollyFive stars!This book is wonderful. You can quite literally feel Anthony’s struggle with himself and his Faith, the hurt of how his friends treat him when he comes out. It’s so raw and heartbreaking, I felt all of it as I read. David is a wonderful character. I liked how he used his own struggles to help Anthony. I loved how Anthony’s parents were supportive of him. They worshiped as a family and dealt with problems as a family. One of the things I loved was th [...]

    18. I really loved the premise and the main character (yay an asian for once!) but I couldn't really handle all the Jesus talk. Though I do love books where gay characters struggle with their faith but this one was too much. Also I felt that the characters other than MC were not really that interesting.

Title: InclinationAuthor: Mia KerickPublisher: Young Dudes PublishingISBN: 978-0-620-64556-0Buy Link: cooldudespublishing/Reviewer: Teresa Fallen AngelBlurb:Sixteen-year-old Anthony Duck-Young Del Vecchio is a nice Catholic boy with a very big problem. It’s not the challenge of fitting in as the lone adopted South Korean in a close-knit family of Italian-Americans. Nor is it being the one introverted son in a family jam-packed with gregarious daughters. Anthony’s problem is far more serious [...]

    20. 3.5I loved this. I, like many people who were raised religious to one extent or another (not much in my case, one of my parents being an atheist) have many issues with it. Religious views on women, homosexuality, abortion and other 'hot' topics that come down to equality can get me into a rage.But Ms Kerick sold me on it. Tony (who's got an interesting background as an adopted son of a Italian-American family but is originally from South Korea and feels very much a part of his family because his [...]

    21. I picked this up because I loved the premise–a teenager learning to embrace both his sexuality and his faith. I really like reading about lgbtq people of faith. I was also excited to see that it had two other things I love: Boston and Italian families, both things that are familiar to me.At first, I really enjoyed the story. I liked the main character right away. There were so many great facets, and the story dives right into his intense feelings of insecurity and anxiety. These are relatable [...]

    23. I’m always interested in novels that explore the theme of stretching faith to include sexual acceptance. "Inclination" gives us Anthony, a teenager who struggles to reconcile his newly confirmed sexual orientation with the loss of his lifelong membership in a Catholic parish. He has a genuinely loving relationship with the God of his understanding. Another devout young man helps him accept himself and explore a deeper, more personal aspect of faith that goes beyond rules. Unlike Anthony, I abs [...]

    24. i didn't completely hate this book, i did like how it was about a korean-adoptee (though that was not explored much)what i didn't like was how black and white it was. characters felt one-dimensional, no one seemed to have a healthy relationship with God, and all the talk about scripture and such were boring (and i wasn't a fan of abstinence being a such a central theme) another thing that bugged me was david changing the youth groups name from "our way" to "his way," which feels like it's exclud [...]

    25. Gros coup de coeur. Etant une fervente catholique, je me suis retrouvée dans les doutes les angoisses qu'éprouvait Anthony. Nous devons jamais oublier l'essentiel:1-nous sommes tous enfants de Dieu2- Jesus nous aime.Merci pour cette merveille
