Product Details

Praise

Horatio Alger meets Dorothy Allison in this debut memoir about growing up and coming out . . . Generous and illuminating. —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Not graphic or preachy, this book belongs in any high school that has students struggling with issues of identity and gender!” —Terri Lent (AASL), Patrick Henry High School, Ashland, VA

“Jennings, founder of GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian, Straight Educational Network, recounts his experiences with bigotry, fear, strength and inspiration within his immediate family, among school peers and in society in general. This work is an engaging account of a boy conflicted who goes on to lend vital support to other young people across the country.”—Carla Bauman-Franks (PLA), Allen County Public Library, Fort Wayne, IN
