A heartfelt, laugh-out-loud-funny story of romance, family, and self-discovery.

Alek Khederian should have guessed something was wrong when his parents took him to a restaurant. Everyone knows that Armenians never eat out. Between bouts of interrogating the waitress and criticizing the menu, Alek’s parents announce that he’ll be attending summer school in order to bring up his grades. Alek is sure this experience will be the perfect hellish end to his hellish freshman year of high school. He never could’ve predicted that he’d meet someone like Ethan.

Ethan is everything Alek wishes he were: confident, free-spirited, and irreverent. He can’t believe a guy this cool wants to be his friend. And before long, it seems like Ethan wants to be more than friends. Alek has never thought about having a boyfriend—he’s barely ever had a girlfriend—but maybe it’s time to think again

One Man Guy is about Alek and his Armanian ways and his New York and self explorations with Ethan. This is a good coming of age book for a lot of confused teenagers out there that they will enjoy this book. This book show that teenagers these day need to have more faith to themselves and people around them. I won’t elaborate any further as to I don’t want to spoil you guys. Highly recommended for those who want to break free of their usual norms and those who are afrais to come out of their comfort zone.
