First, I want to say how brave this girl is for not being held back by societal rules that force her to wear dresses, makeup, and grow long hair. But not only is she brave enough to dress like a boy, she's smart, witty, and full of humor.

People, do not take this book as seriousness. Just like Stephen Colbert and Sacha Baron Cohen's characters, this strong lesbian writer is being farcical and is exposing the hypocrisy of the angry conservative movement. If you are looking for a funny, teen political book, spend your hard earned money on this treasure trove.

Format: Paperback
A poorly written manuscript of emotional dogma poorly disguised as a memoir and seething with bigotry and hatred towards anyone who is homosexual or non-christian

Only recommended as a gift to a particularly unpleasant in-law

Format: Paperback
When I ordered the book and started to read it, I went in with the mindset "I'm going to review this book with seriousness, look at the arguments, and evaluate them with utmost integrity as one with a reviewer's authority should have". I left thinking "How can I express how big a money-hole this is?" I've got an answer: Imagine the bottomless pit from Sparta. Now, expand that to the size of France. That's how large a hole this is, and chucking your money into it is pointless.

The introduction says "people discredit me because of my age." I'd like to say no: they discredit you because of the lack of integrity you use when writing books. It is blatant this is written by a 14 year old (though I'd probably guess younger if I was told 14 was wrong) due to the fact that the book uses capital letters like it's going out of style. It has a full page devoted to names of evil Disney television shows and actors for promoting being green. It is unsubstantiated in many vital cases, and over-substantiated in cases where it is a triviality.

My favourite section, and the one I confess to be most interested in, was the "Conservatism vs Liberalism". I always find these ideological differences are the most intriguing. I was, well, I want to say disappointed, but after the previous 4 chapters, I was expecting something along the lines of "Democrats are satanic", or some references to God anyway. This quotation sums up his thoughts on liberalism:

"If you choose liberalism, unless you're a grump bum, you should listen to my show and reread my book".

In short, liberalism is for idiots, now buy more merchandise. A Conservative at heart, I feel appalled at this (lack of) education many are observing.
