First Born Sons

First Born Sons by Vincent Traughber Meis is an eye-opening, heartfelt story of the modern-day struggles of growing up in America. The characters, narrated in separate storylines set across the country, with various LGBTQ+ identities, are looking for solidarity and love in communities rife with racism, misogyny, and homophobia. As each character’s story progresses, the reader gets a glimpse into their reality, which is often plagued with the challenges of facing discrimination daily, while finding compassion and allies that provide much-needed love and support.

The author does an incredible job of tackling essential issues impacting society, from gender, equality, and race to the sudden shift from 2019 to 2020 as the pandemic changed lives worldwide. As each character navigates through their own individual challenges within their family and the greater community, their lives become interwoven during a Black Lives Matter demonstration and a birthday celebration. This book offers an essential view into the realities of growing up with continuous uncertainties each character faces while keeping humanity solid and hopeful throughout the narration.

Vincent Traughber Meis’ book is an essential read that delves into relevant subject matter without losing a sense of purpose as each character faces a new struggle. First Born Sons tackles the characters’ realities of facing racial tension and confrontation with the police and coping with the threats of bullies to taking a vacation to experience new cultures and people.

This book is easy to follow, with engaging scenes and lively characters that keep you turning the pages from one chapter to the next. I give Vincent Traughber Meis’ First Born Sons 5 out of 5 stars for creativity, remarkable story-telling, and the ability to tackle complex issues with a sense of resilience and strength throughout the book. This incredible story features vibrant characters and excellent development that keeps the reader invested in the story from beginning to end.
