I really enjoyed this book. I love hearing people's stories and Zach definitely had a story to tell. He is very insightful for someone his age and does a great job putting his thoughts to paper. This is the story of Zach Walls who was raised by lesbian parents and through stories from his life he illustrates how he was raised with a good value system.

As another reviewer stated Zach does often interrupt one story to tell another one, from some other time in his life, and then return to the original story. This did not bother me as I think like this too at times. Also his writing is very good and easy to follow even during these points in his book.

The last page of the chapter section of his book contained one of many examples of how he tackles this subject very well. I have included it below.

"Opponents will often talk about the struggle and challenges that children of gay couples have to go through. I will say only this: We have to go through those challenges because you put us through them. We only have to experience that pain because you insist on inflicting it. By trying to tell us that there that there is something wrong with gay marriage, that there is something wrong with families led by gay couples, you create something wrong - you become the source of our pain."
