Aug 12, Tim rated it it was amazing. Back to top. Garrard Conley. An easy read with attitude and hilarity, I found myself hooked on the story of not only their coming out but also, growing up.
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Robert rated it liked it Dec 06, He shared his experience of being called to go to homes for interventions and witnessing parents have severe panic attacks as they tried to figure out a way to change their gay children to normal.
How the two brothers support and betray each other in their own eyes has emotional appeal that weaves in and out of their story in a good way. Stephane rated it really liked it Nov 06,
Readers also enjoyed. Age Add Age Suitability. Especially folks like myself and the Zakar brothers in that we have essentially bared our souls like a stripper bares their body on stripper poles--in excruciating detail. I can identify with this book more than any other I have ever read.
I did appreciate that they spoke a little about growing up in a religious household but what really struck me was the beneath the surface stuff that I wish was delved into a little more. I read this book on less than 24 hours.
