It was also fun (and sad) to remember what it was like to be a teenager in 1993, when it was perfectly logical to catch public transportation downtown and spend the day wandering about aimlessly, hoping to run into someone. When going to someone's work and asking if they were working that day (and then feeling that disappointment when they weren't there), was a thing. When there was so much time "wasted" because of not having instant communication via cellphones and when strangers would talk to each other because people were not looking into the palm of their hands all the time. We were the last generation to come of age without even email or the internet, and it is easy to forget what that was like. I enjoyed remembering the simplicity and reflecting on those changes as I read the book.
I really enjoyed Lu's perspective, and my only complaint is that I wanted more of the story. I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.
An additional strength of this book is that Lu is short for Luis, who comes from a Puerto Rican American neighborhood, as does the author. The book offers some nice glimpses into that culture and also shows what coming out in that context might be like, in both its strengths and obstacles.
