Love. Love. LOVE. This is absolutely one of the best memoirs I've ever read.

The most enrapturing memoirs are ones that feel like fiction. The author layers and layers intricate details and raw emotion that make this story feel like it's impossible truth. Yet, according to the writer, this is the absolutely factual account of her family's story following her brother's death and her unknowing journey into teen/bisexual/gay sexuality. It felt so truthful and exposing. I loved every second of it.
