Tom Ryan könyvei a rukkolán


Tom Ryan - Way ​to Go
Danny ​thinks he must be the only seventeen-year-old guy in Cape Breton--in Nova Scotia, maybe--who doesn't have his life figured out. His buddy Kierce has a rule for every occasion, and his best friend Jay has bad grades, no plans and no worries. Danny's dad nags him about his post-high-school plans, his friends bug him about girls and a run-in with the cops means he has to get a summer job. Worst of all, he's keeping a secret that could ruin everything.

Tom Ryan - Robin Stevenson - When ​You Get the Chance
Following ​cousins on a road trip to Pride as they dive into family secrets and friendships, When You Get the Chance is a contemporary YA novel, perfect for fans of David Levithan and Becky Albertalli, and for readers looking for a story of friendship and family. As kids, Mark and his cousin Talia spent many happy summers together at the family cottage in Ontario, but a fight between their parents put an end to the annual event. Living on opposite coasts--Mark in Halifax and Talia in Victoria--they haven't seen each other in years. When their grandfather dies unexpectedly, Mark and Talia find themselves reunited at the cottage once again, cleaning it out while the family decides what to do with it. Mark and Talia are both queer, but they soon realize that's about all they have in common, other than the fact that they'd both prefer to be in Toronto. Talia is desperate to see her high school sweetheart Erin, who's barely been in touch since leaving to spend the summer working at a coffee shop in the gay village. Mark, on the other hand, is just looking for some fun, and Toronto Pride seems like the perfect place to find it. When a series of complications throws everything up in the air, Mark and Talia--with Mark's little sister Paige in tow--decide to hit the road for Toronto. With a bit of luck, and some help from a series of unexpected new friends, they might just make it to the big city and find what they're looking for. That is, if they can figure out how to start seeing things through each other's eyes.

Tom Ryan - Atticus ​nyomában
Tom ​Ryan középkorú, túlsúlyos, szókimondó újságíró. De amikor a sors összehozza Atticus M. Finch-csel, a törpe snauzerrel, arra kényszerül, hogy újragondolja addigi életét. Hogy pénzt gyűjtsön rákban elhunyt barátja emlékére, Tom elhatározza, hogy kutyájával együtt egyetlen tél alatt megmássza New Hampshire negyvennyolc legmagasabb hegycsúcsát – méghozzá kétszer. Odafent életük legnagyobb kalandja vár rájuk. A varázslatos, ám veszélyekkel teli téli mesevilágban hóval, faggyal és viharokkal kell megküzdeniük, és ez a különleges bátorságpróba idővel spirituális utazássá válik. Alig egy hónappal a hazatérésük után újabb tragédia vár rájuk. Atticus megvakul, és a vérvizsgálat eredménye még nagyobb bajt vetít előre. Az újabb kihívással szembenézve Tom és Atticus elindul a sötét alagútban, hogy megtalálja a fényhez vezető utat. Kis kutyáknak és tériszonyos, cinikus újságíróknak semmi keresnivalójuk a hegyekben… Az Atticus nyomában egy szívmelengető történet a barátságról, az önzetlenségről, a megváltásról – és mindenekfelett a szeretetről.
