I bought this book when I was thinking of coming out to my parents. Although they never read it, I did. I learned more about the issues of being gay and how to deal with them by reading this book than from any other source. It helped me to understand my parents' fear and anxiety, and helped me to accept myself in a very positive way that has lasted a lifetime.
I highly recommend this book to anyone, gay or straight, who desires to learn the facts about homosexuality, and how real people can deal with its unique problems in a positive way.

Format: Paperback
I didn't know a book on this subject could be as enlightening, inspiring, and informative all at the same time. Truly insightful in delivering and uncovering of the "Homosexual" dilemna of children who at some point in their lives have decided to face the consequences of telling their parents who they really are.

This book focuses on uncovering the heartaches, fear, rejection, love of parents and at the same time confusion and self-doubt faced by most parents of homosexual children. This book provides personal glimpses and sheds some light on parent's fears that they are somehow responsible for who their children have become regarding their sexuality and focuses more on accepting and loving their child for the whole person that they have become instead of hating them or rejecting them for that one aspect of their life.

I did a search for this title specifically so I could submit a review. That's how good I think it is. I read a previous release of this book when I was "outed" to my family accidentally in 1980. The book described to me the feelings of some parents, the possibility of rejection, but especially the love and acceptance that can be experienced by gays when they reveal their whole selves. This book can bring comfort to family members who are dealing with coming-out issues. I thank and applaud the authors whole-heartedly!

I got this book for my own use. I am 18. I did not know what to say to my parents. And I just needed to know what it is like. And I think that it really showed me. Even though my mom and sister found out about my gayness the wrong way I think that I learned what to expect. And I think that it helped me to react better to their finding out. And I hope that others in my situation can find some solace in this book as I did.
