Hi there, interested reader!

I’m awfully sorry, but this page is currently under re-construction.

CHICKEN is in the process of getting a new cover and synopsis in preparation for its December 2017 relaunch. This new edition will also include several scene deleted from the original edition, so you’re not going to want to miss it!

In the meantime, take a moment to appreciate the beauty of the original cover art and then peruse some of the great reviews CHICKEN has received from readers like you.

And of course, don’t forget to check back in December!

What Readers are Saying:

“Wow. Just wow.”

“Wonderfully readable book with lovable characters and a compelling story line. Highly recommended!”

“In my opinion, Chicken is just as relevant YA fiction as Thirteen Reasons Why, but even better written, and one I highly recommend.”

“Amazingly told story of forbidden love in small town America. Casper and Brant are easy to relate to, and their relationship is nothing short of fantastic.”

“This book plays with the reader on a very meta level, making oneself readjust the notion of the type of story they are reading and challenging our ideas of what is the magic and what is the realism of this magical realism genre jewel.”

It was innocent and exciting, and I couldn’t put the book down. From start to finish, I was rooting for Casper and Brant.”
“Wonderful book, well written, and just funny enough to keep me from crying the whole time.”

“There were times when I laughed out loud and times when I couldn’t help but respond orally as I was reading (and one bout of messy messy crying). Chicken is a genre changer for young adult fiction in general and gay representation in media in particular.”

“There is so much praise to heap on this novel: hopeful, heartbreaking, meaningful, important, etc. I could go on and on, because there’s just something about Chicken that hit me hard and will likely stay with me for the rest of my life.”

Night’s crisp language surprises and entertains, sparking the imagination and keeping the reader turning page after page. Here there is hope and humor in the face of damnation. You will fall in love with this story, these characters, and this new up-and-coming author.”

“If you’re looking for a magical LGBT book that’ll change your life and your perspective forever, it’s Chase Night’s CHICKEN.”

“Whoa. I literally can’t even. I am become can’t. Can’t. I was crying on the plane as it was landing.”

“There is so much depth to this novel, layers and layers to pick apart and ponder.”

“I’m not gonna mince words with this one: this book is damn well near the best gay YA book I’ve ever read. It’s sweet and painful in all the right ways. ”

 “This is a beautifully written look at coming of age as a gay kid in a Christ-haunted southern community. Honestly, depending on where, when, and how you grew up, this might hit painfully close to home.”
