it was ok
bookshelves: young-adult, banned-books, queer

this novel is a good read. it's not, however, great. the character of Andy is believable, as is his personal journey. most of the other characters seem way too contrived: an eccentric queer great-uncle, two beautiful queer jocks in school, a telegenic young professor. OK. his journey from an alcoholic father, harsh grandmother, damning preacher, bashed crush, to acceptance is interesting. but, at the same time, it's more interesting as an historical novel. i can't imagine recommending this to a young queer today. i'm glad i read it. but i won't be reading it again.
