bookshelves: 2008, fiction, yaf
Read in October, 2008

I pulled this off a recommended reading list because it's a YAF book about a kid with a gay dad. Gay dads & adolescence, what's not to love? I mean, this is the stuff our lives are made of. Sprinkle in a first kiss and some Serious Issues like domestic violence & ankle sprains, and you have Jack's coming-of-age story, bookended by driving lessons and finally getting his permit. Please don't compare this to other "edgier" coming of age tales - this is decidedly suburban, fag baby.
