I realise that I am posting more book reviews this week than I’ve posted all year, but that has something to do with it being summer. 🙂 I can get through two books a day during the summer time (or a read of someone else, and some work on my own writing projects). Here’s a great one for you!
Almost Perfect by Brian Katcher
New York: Delacorte Press, 2009. 361 p.
This is a brilliant book. Katcher created fully drawn, believable characters dealing in confusion and sincerity with complex issues. Logan, a kid in a red necked town in Missouri falls for the new cute girl at his school. Much to his shock, she turns out to be transgendered. Issues are explored. Love. Sexuality. Violence. Acceptance. Families. Friendship. Katcher has it all, and it is absolutely wonderful.
A great read for anyone willing to walk a mile in other shoes, straight, or LBGTQ. The courage it takes for Sage to be who she is, makes a profound statement about what a hero is.
Cheers to Brian Katcher. I couldn’t put this book down. Great read.
All 5 stars.
