This book is a must have read. The author really gets the message across that there is no shame in being gay, being who you are and that you are no less of a person because of this. It also drives home the need for everyone to feel safe about their sexuality whether at home, school or even work. Bullying should not be tolerated anywhere!
I for one fell in love with the characters in the story, felt their pain and anguish. I wanted to scream out to them to make them realise what was unfolding around them, to nudge them in the right direction. You know for a fact that you have a good story in front of you if it makes you feel like this.
It takes you on an emotional roller coaster, the tears freely flowing towards the end. Enjoy the story and make friends with Cory, Kevin, Matt Josh, Kelly and Dawn. Oh and of course Richard without whom none of this would have been possible.
