really liked it
bookshelves: canadian, lgbtq

Oooh, I really liked this one. Clearly with the suicide topic it is not going to be a happy book but it is a good book. What was it exactly that I liked so much? I really liked the characters. I think people feel more real to me when they are flawed, have bad qualities as well as good. I like how the different characters process the suicide differently and I like how you can see the flaws in the school system in dealing with the suicide and with LGBTQ people. But, it does all this without being preachy like an essay, skillfully done. If I want to be nit picky... I think Crepe Suzette was a little too cheesy and perfect, even for a fabulous drag queen. But I am open to a perfect fabulous drag queen proving to me otherwise.
