The Boystown series currently contains six books, the most recent of which was released Dec. 12, 2016. “It’s finally here and I couldn’t be more excited,” Biondi said of Boystown Season Six. “The fans’ wait is over and they can now discover what happened to their favorite Boystown characters whose lives were hanging in the balance at the end of the fifth book.”
“Being included in Marco Manganiello’s list of the best books of 2016 is a phenomenal honor and a great way to end a year that has been very good for Boystown.” Not only did 2016 see the release of two new books in the Boystown series, but it also continued the series’ trend of five-star reviews on Amazon.com.

The Boystown book covers feature a group of models known as the “Boystown boys.” Created by designer/photographer James Franklin, each book cover showcases several of the famous models.

Musician and YouTube sensation Skylar Kergil, who appears in the sixth book, said, “Jake Biondi’s inclusion of a trans masculine character, Ethan, puts this book on a ground-breaking level. The inclusion of alternative gender identities and diverse bodies allows us, the readers, to also explore our own thoughts about these sweeping, universal issues we all experience: love, identity, and passion.”
Biondi added, “I regularly receive notes from fans who connect with the characters and want to know what the future holds for them. The broad appeal of the Boystown series is incredible. Boystown has a really diverse audience and an equally diverse cast of characters.”
