about this book

"The quality of this book is fantastic because it comes of equal parts honesty and logic and humor. It is far from being the story of a gay crusader, nor is it the story of a closet queen. It is the story of a normal boy growing into maturity without managing to get raped into, or taunted because of, his homosexuality. . . . He is bright enough to be aware of his hang-ups and the reasons for them. And he writes well enough that he doesn't resort to sensationalism."
--San Francisco Bay Area Reporter

"Sensitively told, full of humor, and free of guilt."
--Library Journal
