it was amazing
bookshelves: top-5-books-ever
Read in January, 2000

ok, I know everyone and their mom thinks this is the best book ever, and really it is quite amazing and so is everything that Leslie Feinberg does. But i have to say besides all the reasons everyone loves this book I remember the exact moment I read the opening letter in this book and how I was totally blown away. Not just because it was this brutally honest confession about being stone butch, but just because it that kind of letter where you say everything you ever meant to and it was beautiful. I read it like 3 times before i moved on to the rest of the book, and I wanted everyone (including myself) to have the courage to write friends and loved ones such amazing letters.

Then of course I went on the rest of the book which also blew me away and now 8 years later I still love this book and the opening letter.
