Author: H.A. Robinson

Genre: YA M/M Romance

Release Date: October 23, 2018

At sixteen years old, Tom Williams has spent his entire life pretending to be someone he’s not. 

The perfect son. 

The perfect student. 

The perfect friend. 

After so long, it seems impossible he’ll find the courage to truly be himself, whoever that is.

And then he falls for his best friend—the one person in the world he knows he can never have. 

Good looking, charismatic and popular, Luke Chang is everything Tom wants, and everything he wishes he could be. 

There’s only one problem.

Luke is straight and thinks that Tom is, too.

As the wrong-shaped boxes get increasingly tighter and harder to force himself into, Tom has to make a choice between a lifetime of conforming or shedding the mould he’s struggling to fit and allowing himself the happiness he can’t quite believe he deserves.

Chasing the Sunrise is a coming of age story that made me cry. It's beautiful, loving, and angst. 

Tom just wants to be "normal" and when he can't be that he wants the boy he has no business wanting. My heart ached for him because he is so sweet and so good and he didn't deserve the hand he was dealt. Yes, there were some instances when Tom was impulsive and acted out, but he's a teenager, it's what teenagers do. He was also hurting. He was lost and trying to find himself in a world that he didn't always understand. In a world that didn't always understand him. 

I cried and felt so much as I was reading Tom's journey. I wasn't sure what to expect from him, but I'm so glad that this book turned out the way it did. It was heartfelt. It was beautiful, it made my heart ache and it also made it sing. The feelings and some situations were so real and touching. I didn't see him as a character on the page but as someone in real life who I wanted to scoop up and take his pain away. 

Chasing the Sunrise is a coming of age story that everyone who reads it can love. Because we've all been lost, we've all had to figure out how to navigate this world, we've all been Tom in one way or another. H.A. Robinson told a touching and moving book that I will love forever. 

H. A. Robinson is a jet-setting billionaire with a home on each continent, who spends her free time saving kittens from trees and babies from burning buildings. A graduate of Hogwarts and a frequent visitor to Narnia, she drinks coffee in Central Perk and tames dragons on Westeros. 

In her dreams… 

In reality, she’s a support worker living in a small town in Cheshire, who would almost always choose fantasy over reality. She’s been an obsessive reader from the moment she picked up her first Enid Blyton book, more years ago than she cares to admit, and enjoys nothing more than getting lost in new worlds and adventures from the minds of all the amazing authors out there. 
She’s had the voices of characters in her head for as long as she can remember, and puts them down on paper in order to convince herself and the men in white coats that she isn’t crazy.
