    Okay, let s try this damn review again since something went on the fritz and didn t save.First, thanks to Stuart R West for providing me with a complimentary copy to read and review As has always been The Fountain Pen Diva s rule, I may fangirl over authors but that stops when it comes to the actual book If it worked, it worked If not, they ll know that too Tex, the Witch Boy worked for me It s rare to come across any YA that are written from a male first person point of view Tex real na Okay, let s try this damn review again since something went on the fritz and didn t save.First, thanks to Stuart R West for providing me with a complimentary copy to read and review As has always been The Fountain Pen Diva s rule, I may fangirl over authors but that stops when it comes to the actual book If it worked, it worked If not, they ll know that too Tex, the Witch Boy worked for me It s rare to come across any YA that are written from a male first person point of view Tex real name Richard in most ways was like any normal teenage boy, except for that WITCH part He was also a young man who shouldered adult responsibilities, such as driving his father to and from work due to his father s MS Tex also had to deal with his mother having survived breast cancer, only to be killed in an automobile accident Needless to say, both son and father have some serious emotional barriers in place.Add to this the hell known as high school Tex just so happens to be a bully magnet to the football jocks The bullying is horrific and that sense of helplessness evenso Worse still were the reactions of some of the adults who should be looking out for the students in their charge The worst culprit was the Vice Principal Arville Hastings, the type of authority figure who puts athletics and athletes before anything or anyone else These real life enablers are just as responsible for bullying as the bullies themselves.Be that as it may, Tex has a loyal band of friends who are also outsiders Ian, the poster boy for everything emo Olivia, a no nonsense spitfire who can hold her own, and Josh, skater king outside of school, huge bully target within the building Together, the merry band of misfits do their best to survive the wilderness of hall and classroom.And then Tex s dad drops the life changing bombshell on him his mother was a powerful White Witch and the trait is genetic That means Tex needs training in Witchcraft 101 His mentor, Mickey Goldfarb is no Mister Miyagi Blue of hair, fluffy pink of slipper and addicted to Colonel Saunders original recipe, we re not talking Glinda here However, Mickey s no nonsense tutoring is just what the poor and bemused Tex needs.He just doesn t know how badly he ll need it as two of Tex s jock tormentors are found brutally murdered, and the fingers are being pointed at him Then things get worse for the tight group of misfits.There s equal parts humor, snark and the serious issue of bullying Author Stuart R West writes in the afterward the incidents he depicted in the book came from real life experiences he and his friends went through It s not preachy, and the novel really is about Tex discovering his powers both supernatural and physical Tex despite my tendancy to imagine cowboy boots and ten gallon hat is the kind of richly crafted teenage protagonist so often missing in the genre The only thing that kept this from a full five stars was the serious and inexplicable lack of diversity Kansas is not Antartica There are people of colour who live even in the suburbs Erasure is not acceptable in 2014 Still, I enjoyed the characters enough especially Olivia a much needed panacea to the many weak willed YA NA heroines being popularized to go grab Tex And The Gangs Of Suburbia

    I started Tex with trepidation The setting of Kansas, a boy named Tex, a witch who didn t know he was a witch Sounded a little silly to me BUT, it was really quite good It takes on bullying while working all the good coming of age and witch very well Everyone who was bullied can appreciate that truth of it The author wrote an Afterword which indicates he was a bullied kid and much of what he put in the book really happened to himself or somebody he knew.The only problem I had with it was I started Tex with trepidation The setting of Kansas, a boy named Tex, a witch who didn t know he was a witch Sounded a little silly to me BUT, it was really quite good It takes on bullying while working all the good coming of age and witch very well Everyone who was bullied can appreciate that truth of it The author wrote an Afterword which indicates he was a bullied kid and much of what he put in the book really happened to himself or somebody he knew.The only problem I had with it was a bit too much exposition up front Tex states in the first line that he s a witch, but the story drops back and we find out nothingabout this major aspect for quite some time.I have no trouble recommending it for all readers of YA and urban fantasy You ll like Tex Olivia will annoy you, but in a charming way You ll shed a few tears forwell, that d be a spoiler

    This is the third West novel I ve read He has quite a range The other two were adult novels that I greatly enjoyed and this paranormal YA was amazing as well Tex is a bullied boy dealing with the loss of his mother and his blossoming witch powers He, his mentor Mickey, his girl Olivia, and the other characters were well written A murder mystery involving his classmates and the heightened suspense were also awesome elements.

    Stuart R West s Tex, the Witch Boy isthan just a book about a teenage boy who happens to find out he is a witch and his friends who suffer at the hands of school bullies Filled with sharp humor, a rich voice, a touch of romance, and serious themes that never beat you over the head with their message, this isthan just your average paranormal story I look forward to devouring the rest of the books in this series.
