"This is an excellent, coming of age story which addresses many issues teenagers today face. Throughout the story, the characters deal with hate, stereotyping, identity crises, death, and bullying. Coping with these issues leads them down a path of self-discovery allowing them to be themselves. High School students would definitely be interested, and the book provides lots of opportunities for classroom discussion and lessons, as well as the opportunity for parents to begin a dialogue with their children. Well done!"
