Book 1 of 3 in the Bear, Otter, and the Kid Chronicles Series. For me, Tj Klune writing is the epitome of how a story can be written to make you FEEL. I do not know how to explain it other than, the way he writes and composes a story makes me feel like I am staring into his characters souls and that his characters are a part of me. So basically, it makes the emotions the book invokes that much powerful but also it makes you love the story, no matter how sad, that much more.

Book: The OB cooks for MC and the child at his parents' beach house and makes whatever the kid wants . I mean this is a TJ Klune book and I have come to realize, that he has a way of pulling me into a story, that I don't ever want to end. He has a very unique writingstyle, which I love very much. So yes, I loved this book. well because of Bear, Otter and the Ki.and all of the other amazing characters that were in this book.

This time, though, there's nowhere to run from the depth of emotion between them.

Where to begin. I'm really torn about this review. When I began the book, I thought I'd love it. The premise was different and I liked Bear's first person narrative. Soon, I realized that Bear is a person who bottles up his thoughts and emotions, keeping everything inside, even from his best friends. He is also in constant conflict with his inner self. But, so far so good. As the story develops, however, Bear's inner turmoil became too much for me.

A major plot development occurs near the midpoint. And for me anyway, the book began to lose it's luster. Klune could have really used a good editor to pare down some of Bear's self-inflicted woes. In lengthy inner monologues, he repeats himself: not just one time, but again and again. Finally, I began skipping over paragraphs at a time, because I wanted to know what would happen next, not a rehash of things I already knew. That's just not something I do with a well-written book. I sometimes enjoy wordy authors, but only when they are telling me something new with those words.

Anyway, I thought that character development was very good. This book has become a series, and I plan to read the second book. Maybe it will be written from a different character's perspective, one who can more easily make up his mind. Otter? The Kid?

I don't give Bear, Otter, and the Kid a thumbs down, but I can't really recommend it either. I'm sorry I can't!

4 stars!
This is a book I've been meaning to read for a LONG time.

Bear, Otter and the Kid is the story of Derrick (Bear), a 21 year old man who is raising his younger brother on his own. Their mom left when he was 17, and it's been just him, his brother and his best friend for a long time. When Bear's best friends brother Otter comes home after a long time away, and Bear must face feelings he never expected.

This is a book I've been meaning to read forever. I just couldn't get past the horrible cover (superficial and shallow of me, I know). But I honestly think this book would sell more with a better cover. GFY romance is my favorite kind, mostly because of ANGST and we all know I love my angst.

I really enjoyed this story, Ty the little brother cracked me up. I know I would end up with a kid like him, but mine would probably be more of a bad kid. Otter was pure awesome, that man was a saint. My heart felt so much for that man. He and Bear just seemed perfect together, despite how frustrating Bear could be.

One thing I have to get off my chest, the excessive use of the word "R******d" (word removed for amazon, but means special needs). I stopped counting after 6-7 mentions. For a book that preached not using the word "f**" (word removed for amazon, bad word meaning homosexual) because it was hurtful, it really shouldn't be using the other word so much. Maybe it's just me, but that really makes me mad...

Anyways, I can't wait to read the other books in this series and have more of the kid, Otter and Bear in my life.

“I’ll never understand why people just won’t let others be who they are. It’s not like it’s affecting them in any way.”
lets go baby
"This is the way my world ends."

With this opening sentence, we meet Derrick (Bear, to those who know him), and discover that, one day short of his 18th birthday, three days shy of his high school graduation, and three months away from his leaving to start college, his mother has left. Left him alone and in charge of his five your old brother Tyson (Kid). With the help of his girlfriend Anna, his best friend Creed and Creed's brother Oliver (Otter), Bear picks himself up and gets on with the business of making sure the Kid is cared for and loved.

Over the course of the three or four years covered here, we see love. Love between two brothers, between friends, between a man and a woman, and between a man and another man. We see love end, love begin, and love transformed. We see love used as a weapon, love as an excuse, and love as a means of control.

We get the Kid's definition of love. "I think it's when you can't go on another day without the other person. That they make you feel like your stomach is on fire but in a good way."

We see it when a heart is broken and love ends. "You've broken my heart, but it was mine to give."

And we have our hearts broken when Bear tells the Kid their mom deserted them. "I heard the first gasping breath come out of his little body. 'Bear!' he cried into my ear. 'What's going to happen to me? I'm not big like you! What's going to happen to me?'" And Holy Hell, didn't I choke up at that...

What happens is...I almost don't have words for it...a glorious, imaginative, sprawling, touching, living heart of a book. TJ Klune has taken these characters and built a tale of family and love. We follow Bear's story, as he deals with his mother's leaving, raising the Kid, his on and off again relationship with Anna, and his struggle with whatever it is that exists between him and Otter.

Because at heart, this book IS about Bear and Otter. How love can start and stall and transform and be something that brings two people together and yet keep them apart and take you by surprise. The question that looms over the entirety of the book is, will Bear allow himself to trust and love, and will he allow it to be Otter?

Mr. Klune has crafted this story so lovingly and so completely, and invested his characters with so much personality and life that I found myself yelling at them one moment, so angry at their denseness and stubbornness, then gasping and swallowing against the lump in my throat and fighting the prickling of tears in my eyes as their care and concern and love for one another shone through. And marveling at how true to life the feelings and reactions were.

I forgot, sometimes, in my frustration with Bear that he is still a very young man. His shouldering of the responsibility of being mother, father and brother to the Kid in many ways froze him emotionally, and didn't grant him the time to grieve and get angry and be a normal young man. I found myself aching to give this young man a hug while at the same time wanting to shake the stuffing out of him. And that is where I think Mr. Klune's genius shines through. It is almost impossible to NOT react to Bear; he is all elbows and knees and sharp corners, and they stick out and poke the reader to react with and to him. I found myself drawn again and again to the Staind song "Epiphany" when pondering him.

"I am nothing more than a little boy inside
That cries out for attention
though I always try to hide
'Cause I talk to you like children,
Though I don't know how I feel
But I know I'll do the right thing
If the right thing is revealed
'Cause its always raining in my head
Forget all the things I should have said"

He is a little boy, hurt inside, and I want to just grab him and wrap it all right for him.

And as much as I love Bear, I love Otter and how he fits with Bear so well. He could very well be a caricature of a gay man, but he is so shaded, so colored with depth. Sometimes the sorrow is almost palpable, and then the light shines through, and I think, God, I want a man like this for myself.

And the Kid - I hate precocious children in movies and television. But this young boy is so three dimensional, there is never a wrong or sour note struck. He is the younger brother we would all love to have - wise but so very young and so flawed and just one more heartbreak away from a catastrophe. And yet, never a misstep. Held together by Bear and Otter and Anna and Creed. Just a wonderfully conceived and executed young man.

This book is one of my favorites of any genre I have read. I adore Amy Lane's "Promise Rock" books and place this in the same category as "All time favorite if I were trapped on a deserted island and could only take one book" books, because of the shared theme of family being what you make it, not what you are born with.

Mr. Klune, you have created a fine, fine work here that will be one of my favorites for years to come. You must have a huge heart to have created such warm, alive and meaningful characters, and I bless you for it. I wish I had the skill and words and talent, as you do, to do your beautiful book justice.
