Boy, Falling by Jenny Jaeckel (Book Review #1117)


Boy, falling is a historical fiction that begins with Gerard Rougeaus leaving Montreal, his home for New York City. The story is set in 1909 and tells the story of Gerard’s journey. He has a half-sister Jeannette and two nieces who are struggling. The story focuses on Black history and includes an LGBTQ storyline.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Gerard’s love for music is beautiful. He has a big secret and journeys to Paris, embracing his passion. I particularly enjoyed that the book represented personal and social change. The literature is written very well, and if you are into historical novels and family history, you will enjoy this read.

The author blends the love for family and love in general very well into the layered narrative. The literature is rich and celebrates family, which was beautiful.

I recommend this book to historical fiction readers.
