Nominated for the 2014 Stonewall Award in Children's and Young Adult Literature.
Good Points
Realistic series of 'journal entries' by gay high school freshman accurately reflects the era. Engaging main character suffering from (undiagnosed) bouts of depression deals with an unwanted reputation, a family slowly disintegrating under the stress of societal change and the Vietnam War, and the confusions of falling in love with another boy.
