I have lived all 25 years of my life in Tuscaloosa and have always wanted to find a book about this hick town and I happened to find it by mistake.

What They Always Tell Us perfectly captures life in this college town and what it is like to grow up in Tuscaloosa, from both a straight and gay point of view.

It was so surreal to read along and see mentions to places like Buddy's food mart, the Sunbeam Bread company and etc. It made me feel less trapped and not nearly as alone. Like somewhere out there, someone who knows made it to the other side and reported back.

Even if you can't find Alabama on a map, this is still a great read and I would recommend it to anyone.
