Magic Tree House
Junie B. Jones
Complicated relationships and the start of young love form a story you will not soon forget. Ghosts of the past, those who have died of AIDS, watch with a mixture of awe and wistfulness at the freedom these young gay men have to explore their sexuality. Bullying, coming out, experiencing the thrill that comes from discovering someone likes you, feeling so alone that you want to die, and knowing what it feels like to have family and friends that totally support you, these are the common stories woven by the chorus with both wisdom and sensitivity.
