    About “J.T. Holden

    • J.T. Holden

      J.T Holden is the author of three books of rhyming poetry Alice in Verse The Lost Rhymes of Wonderland A compilation of masterful original poetry The Children s Book Review , Twilight Tales A Collection of Chilling Poems Filled with atmospheric rhymesvid images and palpable tension Foreword Reviews , and O The Dark Things You ll See A delightfully dark sendup to Dr Seuss s Oh The Places You ll Go Teen Reader Review J.T s novels include The Boys From Manchester A richly textured and atmospheric coming of age fantasy talehauntingly beautiful and starkly realisticwith an explosive, action packed finale The Midwest Book Review , Three Imaginary Boys One of the best Halloween reads I ve come across in quite a while Reviewer , and JB Or The Unexpected Virtue of Being Swaggy This splendid satire is a real page turner I couldn t put it down Teen Reader Review.On his work I love coming up with new and different stories to tell It makes it a little harder on marketing when all of your books don t fall into a simple and easily labeled category, but my tastes have always run a bit eclectic as anyone who has read Twilight Tales can tell you The one constant, or linking factor, would be that all of my novels center on teenage boys coming of age, so there s always a good deal of me in at least one of the main characters The other constant is that there is never a bad guy in my novels at least not in the willful or wanton sense Even the villains in Manchester and Three Imaginary Boys are not wholly villainous each has his or her own demons to contend with, forces beyond their control, or comprehension, that made them the way they are For me, the villain with no redeeming qualities is like the hero with no flaws bland and uninteresting.On superpowers in his books I ve only written two novels that don t feature any characters with superpowers both set for release in 2016 , and though I m proud of both, I d have to say that I prefer writing stories about teens with superpowers But as anyone who has read my books knows, I strive for a realistic take on the subject I grew up on DC comics and still love them to this day, but I m wise enough to recognize that I do not possess the sort of flare it takes for that style of writing Instead, I do what I do best telling stories of teens in the early development of their special powers which is why there will never be a sequel to The Boys From Manchester Not because there isn t to tell, but because I ve already told the best part of it I ll leave it up to the imagination of the readers to decide what happens with Daniel and Brandon and Cody in the future when they re grown up and have realized the full potential of their powers In experience, the origin story is usually the best, and often the only one worth writing or reading.On reviews Though I ve received extremely positive reviews from Foreword, The Midwest Book Review, and The Children s Book Review, my two favourite reviews came not from professional critics but from regular readers The first came from an customer named John whose entire review of Manchester consisted of two sentences Innovative storytelling, epic story of super powers, great gay romance Not what I expected in terms of typical gay fiction The second review was for JB and came from Gayle Slagle on , a longer review that she summed up with this statement The heart of the book lies in the inner battle between JB and his id, Kid Swaggy it is the classic battle between good and evil that is waged within each of us on a daily basis What I love about these two reviews is that they came from readers who didn t just enjoy my books but truly understood what they were about.

    • I got the ARC of this yesterday and started reading it today — and I didn't stop until I was finished. It's a small book (same trim size and page count as The Perks of Being a Wallflower), so it only took about two and a half hours to read from start to finish, but it wouldn't have mattered if it had been twice the length. I just couldn't put it down.It reminded me of The Catcher in the Rye in that it's a story about a teenage kid (in this case, a very famous one) who spends several days on a [...]


    • I'll admit that when I received a preview copy of this book from the publisher, I had my doubts. Did I really want to hear anything more about JB, let alone read a whole book about him? But after taking a peek at the back cover blurb, I became intrigued. A tell-all book written by JB's id! Now that was almost too good an offer to pass up, even for someone like me, who'd had more than her fill of JB Fever coming from every corner of the media out there. And besides, I'd already read previous book [...]


    • I am neither a Belieber (if anything I find Bieber mildly annoying and his singing too high pitched) nor someone who knows very much about pop culture, but was attracted by the thought experiment of this book. The premise is that the id, ego, and superego, as based on Freud's theories, are sentient and separate from Bieber, whom they influence. This book is narrated by the id, which is the most 'primitive,' in that it is the embodiment of pure pleasure and self-satisfaction et etc. A little know [...]


    • I fully expected not to like The Curious Disappearance of Justin Bieber by J.T. Holden. Imagine my surprise when I found myself hooked on the book after a few pages. I mean, what's not to like about a story told from the viewpoint of Justin Bieber's id?? This little book is part satire, part fantasy, part psychology, part coming of age story all rolled into one tale of the spring of 2012 when Justin (JB) supposedly disappeared for three days. I do not even know if this really happened, but it re [...]


    • I am not a JB fan at all and pushed myself to read this book on the recommendation of a friend, but once I started reading, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was not at all what I expected and could not put it down! It is well written and the story is being told from the subconscious instinctual force hidden within all of us. This book can relate to practically everyones' struggles & choices to be made in life along with the inner battles between and the meshing of the hidden person [...]


    • It’s tough to write this review without giving too much away, but I can say that this book is a wild ride from start to finish. In fact, I read the whole thing in a day! Set within the mind of a young superstar with the bright lights of Las Vegas as a backdrop, The Curious Disappearance of JB is a "swagalicious" must-read for anyone who has ever wondered exactly what happens when you give in to your most primitive impulses and desires.


    • I don't want to give away anything about this book except to say, J.T. you could be a therapist for celebrity pop stars gone bad. This book was not at all what I expected. You could literally remove JB from the title, insert any kid celeb gone bad, male or female, and the story still works.Very good read!
