Publisher's Summary

From the award-winning author of Something Like Summer and Straight Boy.... 

Sometimes dreams come true, whether you’re ready for them or not. 

Shane was only 14 when found a photo of a boy his age and became obsessed with it. Now, 13 years later, he has a chance encounter with a man who bears a striking resemblance. Already in a happy relationship, Shane must keep his fantasies in check while attempting to solve the mystery, but little does he realize just how many connections they share. The Boy at the Bottom of the Fountain is a heartwarming short story about love in its many forms, be they real or imagined.

Curse you Jay Bell for making feel emotions

I love Jay Bell's books and how he makes characters that you get each perspective, so you feel each character. this was a beautiful story with a good messages for each character. now if you excuse me, I have to wipe my face from crying. Curse you Jay Bell for riping my heart out again, and me asking you to do it again.

Sweet Short Story

Jay Bell provides a nice complete short story. I like the cast of characters and I could believe the premise. Though three characters are involved, Shane is the one I related to the most and I really liked the conclusion of this tale. Jay Bell is phenomenal story teller and Charlie David is a great narrator.

Beautifully Done Short Story

I am a Jay Bell fan and wow this was a short story filled with so much emotion. I am not sure how Jay Bell did it, but it was awesome. Charlie David was phenomenal at bringing the characters to life and it was so good I listened twice. I highly recommend to all Jay Bell fans and those that like a good short love story.

This story is about love and sacrifice

I read and listened to this story and what Shane did was brave and crazy. Crazy to build the story for himself, brave to let someone's go who you still have feelings for. The end was really shocking for me and once more time Jay Bell wrote a good book, a short story. I don't like them but he does them in a very good way. The love from school can be reunited but not without some sacrifice. Definitely worth reading/listening to.
