I really did enjoy this book. This story was a memoir about his coming of age; his taste of first love, wrestling with his religious beliefs, and his struggles with gaining independence while still being a part of his family.
Through rather beautiful pictures he shares what it was like growing up in a small town. He shares how he was able to make it through bullying, sharing a bed with his brother, and believing in himself to follow his dreams and become the person he is.
Sometimes the pictures were explicit and that is my guess why it was banned in some places, but ultimately I did not find the pictures to be any worse than pictures seen in sex ed. class and honestly... it is a coming of age novel and figuring out the balance between lust and love is something that we all had to figure out, right?
