Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This title opens new doors, as the author insists that we don’t have to anchor stories such as his to tragic ends: ‘Many of us are still here. Still living and waiting for our stories to be told―to tell them ourselves.’ A critical, captivating, merciful mirror for growing up black and queer today.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
