If I wrote a blurb for this book, it would say: "It's like a dick joke with a big heart." I feel like Junior would appreciate that. A quick read with John Green-like humor but less privilege and more Jeff Kinney-ish comic drawings throughout.

Favorite line: "But gay people, being both male and female, were seen as both warriors and caregivers. Gay people could do anything. They were like Swiss Army Knives!" (155)


Do you think this delightful bit of anti-homophobia is one reason the book's been challenged in school libraries?
