    Mia Kerick is the mother of four exceptional children all named after saints and five nonpedigreed cats all named after the next best thing to saints, Boston Red Sox players Her husband of twenty years has been told by many that he has the patience of Job, but don t ask Mia about that, as it is a sensitive subject.Mia focuses her stories on the emotional growth of troubled men and their relationships, and she believes that sex has a place in a love story, but not until it is firmly established as a love story As a teen, Mia filled spiral bound notebooks with romantic tales of tortured heroes most of whom happened to strongly resemble lead vocalists of 1980s big hair bands and stuffed them under her mattress for safekeeping She is thankful to Dreamspinner Press for providing her with an alternate place to stash her stories.Mia is proud of her involvement with the Human Rights Campaign and cheers for each and every victory made in the name of marital equality Her only major regret never having taken typing or computer class in school, destining her to a life consumed with two fingered pecking and constant prayer to the Gods of Technology.Contact Mia at miakerick gmail.

  1. 3.5 If you read and liked Mia Kerick s Love Spells is a MUST read Told from Chance s first person POV, Love Spells is funny, quirky, and poignant Chance, a senior in high school, and his bestie, Emily, navigate love, pumpkin festivals, and bullies Chance wants the Pumpkin Carving King to fall for him To succeed, Chance tries every trick he reads in an article about how to win a man s heart every one except the last BE YOURSELF In an effort to make Jazz Jasper to everyone but Chance fall in love [...]


  2. It s great to see a YA book with a flamboyant young guy as the main character Even so, to see a main character who is gender fluid although Chance is still struggling with gender labels, including that one So much LGBTQ YA fiction seems so determined to show that gay and lesbian teens are just like all other teens that it actively shies away from butch girls and flamboyant boys And in so doing, effectively devalues them I love finding books that happily give us characters across the spectrum, i [...]


  3. Mia Kerick sure is consistent when it comes to her first person POVs her narrators deliver in accordance to their personality and are in no way dependent of the author s I ve also read her One Voice series with 3 first person perspectives and The Red Sheet and it always feels like different authors are responsible for each POV Like there is no trace of Mia Kerick at all And I think that is how you establish that it s hers by having you convinced that this particular character is the one really n [...]


  4. I am a Mia fan and I loved this book Maybe because I still remember the confusion, internal questions and trying to decide which label fit me If you have not been there, this book gives a pretty accurate look at what it is like to be neither boy or girl, but somewhere in the middle and mostly just confused and afraid it s not a great way to go through high school and I m glad Chance had Emily I don t know if I d have made it without my friend Sandy Congrats Mia My greatest wish is that even just [...]


  5. I m giving this book a big, honking 5 stars, and I would give it if I could Mia Kerick is a truly talented writer who deserves the accolades she s gotten I loved her Us Three Love Spell is much less sexual in fact, there s nothing in it but a peck kiss at the end But it has loads and loads of personality This is a YA book that actually seems like it would have true value for any teen questioning their sexuality and gender identity The plot is well constructed for a rom com, with Chance going af [...]


  6. 3.5Love Spell is a super fun, young adult novel with a great message.Chance can t help but be himself He s bullied and tortured for it, but he still puts himself out there regardless of the ridicule I have to just love and admire him for all his strength Lord knows, I would not be that brave.During the Harvest Moon Festival he meets Jasper A cute boy he s never noticed before gasp He also notices that the interest is reciprocated Jasper s got his eye on Chance and Chance is going to make sure he [...]


  7. 4.5 of 5 starsSo What did I think Well, for starters, I was immediately intrigued with what I would consider an almost spastic, ADHD, very self centered, but in his head if not actions, sincere young Chance He at first came off as abrasive, over confident, peckish, and an all around queen bee to me At first I didn t think I d like him very much as so much if the story seemed to be all about him, and not in a good way.But, slowly, we are seeing the layers peel back to a young man that is really N [...]

  9. Before I delve into this great story, I want to first tell you how I came upon receiving this novel Mia Kerick, the author of Love Spell, wrote me one of the nicest emails in the comment section of Mello June s blog She not only took the time to give me some background into her writing career, she went the extra mile to tell me something about herself and about the genre in which she enjoys writing When I realized what her novel was about, immediately I began thinking, Umm, I don t normally read [...]


  10. I received this novel from the author in exchange for a fair review.It didn t take me very long to read Love Spell, and if I could give six stars for the sheer audacity of this novel, I would It s that flamboyant, audacious, outright raunchy and funny It s also a hell of an observation on human nature Chance Cesar is a gender fluid senior in high school who identifies as gay most of the time, as female some of the time, and as something else pretty much whenever he feels like it But don t ask hi [...]


  11. Mia Kerick s cleverness and wit are evident than ever in her most recent publication Kerick s new YA novel, Love Spell, goes above and beyond in its informational, enjoyable and hilarious attributes I hope that Love Spell acts as a printed haven for LGBTQ adolescents and young adults, who too experience the same mental turmoil as Kerick s main character, Chance C sar.Chance C sar, a high schooler living in a country town in New Hampshire, struggles with his own gender fluidity, thus, battles wi [...]


  12. KIRKUS REVIEWS Here is the Kirkus Review of Love Spell by Mia Kerick LOVE SPELLKerick, Mia CoolDudes Publishing June 1, 2015BOOK REVIEWA teenage boy has a crush on a fellow student in Kerick s The Red Sheet, 2014, etc first person YA charmer.High schooler Chance C sar is no shrinking violet not with his hair dyed the flamboyant shade of a Cheez Doodle and most certainly not while wearing a scandalously snug in all the wrong right places orange tuxedo and four inch black pumps while strutting dow [...]


  13. Love Spell is somewhat of a departure from this author s previous books I ve grown accustomed to her tackling weighty topics, whether sexual abuse or the struggle to reconcile religion and homosexuality, and so was pleasantly surprised when I picked this up Though this novella touches on some important issues, those of gender identity and learning to be true to oneself, it s also packed with moments ranging from the laugh out loud to the downright cringeworthy, and the overall feel is one of pur [...]



  14. 4.5 stars for this clean YA LGBTQ contemporary romance Chance Cesar is an out gay teen, a senior in his rural New Hampshire high school and the new Miss Harvest Moon That s right, he was voted to be the pageant queen, as a cruel joke, but he werks it, strutting down the aisle in an orange tux and black pumps That s how we meet Chance, and henceforth his fabulousness cannot be denied.Chance has always known he s attracted to boys men, but he s still not clear on his gender identity He struggles w [...]

  16. Full review click, clickNote I received a free copy of the book in exchange of my honest review After read thoughts The first few chapters I was feeling bit weird I couldn t figure where, why and what was going on There was some kind of festival, but it didn t seem to be at school, and what exactly it was about anyway It took me some time to find my pace My first impression of Chance as a character and a person was of someone I ll probably like, surely admire, but most likely couldn t stand to b [...]


  17. I was given a copy of this book for free in order to receive a fair and honest review My receiving this book in no way affects my opinion of the story Original review found on blog This review was done by guest review Alexa Graham Follow her blog for on her.Mia Kerick s Love Spell is a quirky, entertaining read, and one that addresses issues that are drastically underrepresented in YA fiction The main character, high school senior Chance Cesar, not only identifies as homosexual, but also as a p [...]


  18. This is a wonderfully funny lighthearted book that tells the story of chance and how he journeys to realize that being confused about himself is okay and that he doesn t have to fit in a category but just be himself.Chance is a snarky fun gay young man who is out and proud and shakes things up He becomes Miss Harvest moon and captures the eye of Jasper In his efforts to capture Jasper in his heart he follows these rules from a online dating column to get him Except along the way he journeys to f [...]


  19. QUILTBAG Content Well, Love Spell offers us first and foremost a gender fluid young gay man who thinks Gender Labels Suck Donkey Balls He s out other kids call him girly boy , he s proud a self professed queen , and he s infatuated with a boy named Jazz As for Jazz, he s friendly and kind of shy, but Chance can t figure out whether he ll desire a sexily feminine Chance, a boyishly charming Chance, or no Chance at all, because he isn t gay Fetish Content Actually, despite this being YA fiction, t [...]


  20. The story begins with Chance strutting his stuff being voted as Miss ter Harvest Moon It was meant to be a prank and insult since Chance is openly, flamboyantly gay, but he loved every minute of it Not only is he gay, he is confused by his gender Sometimes he feels like a girl at others he feels very much like a boy This makes it even harder for him to think about relationships since he isn t sure another man would be able to understand and accept him.At the festival, he meets Jasper Jazz and f [...]


  21. Chance has long felt for all of his young life, actually that he s caught between genders and neither fish nor fowl , but he s been pegged as gay and in his rural high school the other kids, sensing that his gender isn t clear, avoid him.But the real trouble begins when he meets a boy who returns his love at the Harvest Moon Festival, and decides to make his underlying differences public.Love Spell is his exploration of gender, being gay, coming out, and most of all, surviving in a world that i [...]


  22. Independent reveiwer for Archaeolibrarian I Dig Good Books.Chance is the Pumpkin Pageant Queen, and when he gets his sights on the Pumpkin Pageant King, Jasper, he pulls out all the stops to make him his.I struggled a bit with this one I have listened to another of Mia Kerick s books, and loved that but this one doesn t carry as much of a punch.I LOVED the plot line, the gender identity issue that Chance has, its dealt with beautifully, very well put across from Chance s POV Its only Chance who [...]

  24. This is a light read, but that doesn t mean Chance s identity crisis should be taken lightly He really does struggle with how to label himself, and I am really glad that he finds some self acceptance by the end.The use of the article that is supposed to help him snag his crush is an interesting device because it also reflects his own internal struggles There is some very dodgy advice use manipulation , which fortunately Chance abandons, but the one sensible statement be yourself , is largely ign [...]
