7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Ryan Donovan on June 20, 2000
Format: Paperback
This was good, but not really what I expected to get. The selections are all well chosen, but after reading each of the excerpts I wanted to read more. Maybe that's the purpose. However, I felt like this anthology is just the tip of the iceberg concerning gay/lesbian literature about growing up. Overall--a good summary, but if you're looking for something more in-depth, try reading something else.

Format: Paperback
I first bought this book about a week after I had come out to my closest friends. I found this book to be a lifeline. I finally felt like I wasn't alone, I wasn't the only one. The book, however, left me with one complaint, that it ended! The stories touch you in a way that is so deeply personal. I found myself identifying with the characters. I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone, gay, straight, questioning, whatever. It is worth reading!

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on February 23, 1999
Format: Paperback
The book contains 4 sections and an appendix filled with helpful references.
All bases are covered in this book, with essays, short stories, journal excerpts, letters and poetry. The entries date from the time of Radclyffe Hall's Well of Loneliness and Quentin Crisp's The Naked Civil Servant, up to the 1990's when a brave young man took a male date to his high school senior prom.
Areas covered include self-discovery, friendships and relationships, dealing with one's family, and facing the world.
The entries are well-written and from the heart. I was touched by all of them.
I also feel this book definitely shines the positive light of progress on the lesbian, bi-sexual & gay movement.

Format: Paperback
This is a cool anthology, combining famous writers' pieces on growing up gay or lesbian with writings by young adults. I really like the variety of kinds of writing -- short stories, poems, essays -- and the diversity of authors. I'd recommend this for anyone going through the coming-out process, as well as family members and others interested in gay/lesbian/bisexual issues. It would also be GREAT for libraries and schools
