My first time getting it in the butt was kind of weird. I think it's going to be weird for everyone's first time, though.

Jack Rothman is seventeen. A solid student with a talent for art, he likes partying, makeup and boys. Sometimes all at the same time. His active, unashamed sex life makes him a red hot topic for the high school gossip machine, but Jack doesn't really care too much about what the crowd is saying about him. His mantra is- 'It could be worse.' And then it is.

When Jack starts writing a teen sex advice column for his best friend's website, he begins to receive creepy and threatening love letters. His 'admirer' is obsessed with Jack - they know who he's hanging out with, who he's sleeping with, who his mum is dating. And while they say they love Jack, they don't love his lifestyle. They want him to curb his sexuality and personality. And if he won't, they will force him.

As his stalker starts to ratchet up the pressure, it's up to Jack and his friends to uncover their identity, before their love becomes genuinely dangerous.

Rosen (The Memory Wall) creates memorable protagonists and brings a fresh, frank voice to his YA debut * Publishers Weekly * A bold, inclusive exploration of teen sexuality that, propelled by Jack's brazen voice, never feels preachy * Booklist, starred review * A sex-positive and thoughtful romp with humour and heart * Kirkus Reviews * Tackles subjects that many would rather bury and pretend teens don't want (or need) to talk about * Simon James Green, author of Noah Can't Even and Noah Would Never * Dispenses sex advice that could be vital to young adult readers * Matt Cain, author of The Madonna of Bolton * A joyously sex positive exploration through teenage life with an unashamedly unapologetic queer hero * Calum McSwiggan, LGBTQ+ advocate and radio presenter * The book I needed growing up as an isolated gay teen in a straight boy's world * Riyadh Khalaf, Presenter of Radio 1's Unexpected Fluids * 'Jack of Hearts' is a confidently queer story that breaks away from the stereotypes to create refreshing and relatable characters' * QWEERIST * I know that when I was coming out I would have loved to have been able to pick up a book that did not ignore or demonise gay sex * Queen and Country Magazine * Readers will be talking about Jack for years to come * Diva Magazine * The affirming, sex-positive, brilliant new book that puts the adult into young adult literature * Attitude Magazine * It's the book about high school that gives you the sex ed class desperately lacking from high school education. * Courtney Act * This book is filth * Julian Clary * A fierce, frank high school thriller which depicts gay intimacy in a sex positive and unapologetic way. * The Bookseller * Jack of Hearts (And Other Parts) is the sex ed class you didn't get in high school - positive, frank and inclusive, but also hilarious, heartfelt and impossibly fun. This book is like a hug that also slaps you on the ass (in the consensual flirtatious sexy way). * Mackenzi Lee, New York Times bestselling author of The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue * Contemporary sex advice meets mystery in this high school story of bullying and being true to oneself . . . an essential addition to library collections that serve teens. * School Library Journal starred review *
