Carol's Reviews > Golden Boy
Max is an intersex child. (previously called hermaphrodite) His story is not an easy read. It begins in a rather shocking manner and continues in a sometimes disturbing and often unsettling direction.
When I first started reading GOLDEN BOY, I wasn't quite sure where the author would take us with such a challenging and unusual subject matter, but as I read along, I soon found myself engrossed with the characters and could not stop reading until I knew more about Max, his rare condition of intersex and how his story would end.
Join Max's tumultuous world where he battles inner-demons and makes tough choices for a very special, emotionally taxing and thought provoking journey. Whew! What a learning experience! (view spoiler)[(am thankful Max lived on, Hunter was charged, and for the beautiful, satisfying ending) (hide spoiler)] Look forward to more from Abigail Tarttelin.
