About the Book

Alex Ford and Cleo O’Shea are an unlikely pair. Cleo’s “poor little rich girl” routine makes Alex groan, and Cleo can’t get why Alex has to take everything so seriously. Cleo’s looking for love, but Alex has a secret he’s not ready to give up, and a flirtation with Cleo is the last thing on his mind. But you can’t find romance before you know real friendship, and sometimes the last person you’d ever think of as a friend ends up being the one you need the most.

Shortlisted for the Canadian Library Association’s Young Adult Book Award and the White Pine Award, and included on both kirkus reviews’ and the American Library Association’s Best Books for Young Adults lists, as well as on the ALA Rainbow List, Another Kind of Cowboy finds Susan Juby at her wittiest. With her trademark humour, she brings life and laughter to this remarkable story of relationships, mixed signals and the soul-searching that sometimes takes two.

Critical Praise

?Although the serious issues of homosexual coming out, alcoholism and child neglect are central to this novel, the tone remains thoughtful and light, the essential goodness of people rises to the top and all ends well. Also, [it] will make you laugh aloud...Highly recommended.?
