Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book free in exchange for an HONEST review.
When I got this book I was actually very unsure about it. I knew there was some homosexuality, and I was afraid it would make me very uncomfortable, but the author did a wonderful job writing this story. I found myself questioning my own thoughts, feelings, and found this novel both eye and heart opening. The story is so moving and both heart warming and heart wrenching at the same time, while showing the reader that prejudice never dies and what truly matters in life. This book made me question so much about my own thoughts and attitudes and showed me that sometimes it is better to stand up for whats right no matter what the consquences are, because you never know when the consequences of going along with the crowd will be worse. I always tell my children not to judge a book by its cover or subject matter, and I learned to listen to myself! This is hands down one of the best books of 2012 and I am highly recommending it to all of my friends!
