** spoiler alert ** I read this in less than an hour. It's written in 'verse', which amounts to, as far as I can tell, regular prose organized to look like poetry. Maybe it's supposed to be free verse. There are also emails. So that was kind of weak to me. This style does not lend itself to depth or exploration.

However, the emotional aspects of the book were authentic but I thought they could have been more developed.

It is entirely possible that the reason I didn't like this book is that I am way outside its target market.

And I saw the Gay Dad thing coming from a mile away! Was I supposed to?
