really liked it
Read in August, 2009

When both her mothers die (it was a gay relationship) Sean (the sperm donor) gains custody of Rosalind. As if being a teen isn't hard enough, try losing both your parents and going to live with a complete stranger. Likewise, Sean doesn't have it any easier. He's still greiving over the loss of his own mother and has absolutely no parenting skills. Told entirely through e-mail, instant messaging, journal entries, and other random communications, Donorboy is a heart-felt story that explores the meaning of family. One might think that this would read like a made-for-TV movie but there's some meat here and the answers don't come easy.
