With so many kids in my widest circle actively considering where their minds and bodies really are, I’ve wanted to read this. I find myself avoiding a whole fat book of verse.
Turns out the verse wasn’t a problem.
I like what this book is trying to do. It’s a worthy addition to a library collection for the subject matter and the kids who might need it.
As a book, eh. Clark establishes the characters and their personalities and feelings. Again and again and again. Once we know what Brandon is thinking and feeling, once we meet Angel and hear her story, once Vanessa lets us into her thoughts, the story should move. It doesn’t. Nothing happens. And in the end, not enough happens.
