I guess I thought I ought to read this book - due to interest and personal life reflecting the issues in this book. I didn't get very far though - it's not written in a way that could hold my interest.

I also felt very far away from these American teenagers on a personal level - non-standard sexuality is really the only thing we have in common. Otherwise the things that matter to them are not really major for me. They all go on about their families and list exact age for instance.

This was very interesting in that even though I'm reading it in my 30s (and the local library didn't buy it until 2006) I'm reading about people who were coming out as teens when I was, in the mid-'90s. I'm not sure all of that is pertinent in the same way today (though it certainly could be!) and I'd love to read some follow-ups, but it was amazingly familiar and important to me on that front.
