There are always more tales to tell…

A collection of eight different unpublished stories from the Fosterverse are contained within ranging from unused drafts of published stories to all new tales never before offered to the public.

Stories Include:
A Place Called Home
You Will Rise
Last Friday Night
Unused Opening for 151 Days
Five Dates and a Hookup
If Only in My Dreams
And an all new story, The Beginning is the End is the Beginning

This is one of the best anthologies I’ve ever read. I enjoyed every story. Every story is unique, and either serves to flesh out characters or situations from the Foster High series.

Goode brilliantly describes the turmoil of growing up gay in a small town, just wanting to get out, and first real tastes of passion.

He manages to take an established series, with beloved characters, and not only introduce something new (Aaron’s story just to start), but also gives new perspectives for the beginning and middle of Kyle and Brad’s epic story.

While I really liked all of the stories (a huge thing for an anthology), I especially loved three stories: A Place Called Home, which is Aaron’s story, Five Dates and a Hookup, which is absolutely hilarious and had me practically falling off my chair laughing, and Regret, which brought tears to my eyes.

I know some people pooh-pah Young Adult and New Adult fiction – but I have to tell you, folks, you’re missing out if you skip over this series.

Goode’s writing is magnetic and mesmerizing. He draws you into this world, and these characters, and makes readers feel like they too have a stake in the character’s lives.

While I wouldn’t recommend trying to read this anthology as a stand-alone, because it really is for fans who have followed the series, I would absolutely recommend you read this series and work your way up to this one. It’s fantastic!

Galley copy of Lost Tales From Foster High provided by the author in exchange of an honest review.


I am an unapologetic book addict/lover. I'm happiest when reading and I spend most of my time with my Kindle, which is never far from my hand. I love to be told a good story! I mostly read fiction: Romance, Erotica, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal (shifters? Yes, please!), a little BDSM when I'm in the mood, and I love a good ménage story. I DEFINITELY PREFER A HFN/HEA! My biggest no-no's are cheating, miscommunication / misunderstanding plots, unnecessary angst, and cliffhangers.
