$1.99 for a book that won a Lambda, the Stonewall, the Pura Belpré, and a Printz Honor? YES, PLEASE.
From my review:
I also loved how it didn't dismiss those feelings about family and family history and so on as irrelevant or unimportant. In terms of conflict, those issues very definitely take a backseat to sexuality and identity, but they're no less important in terms of the characters' worldviews or their ultimate growth.
And you know the simple-yet-profound thing? When authors are capable of capturing a huge feeling with just a few words? Sáenz nails that again and again.
