Balancing case narratives with concise recommendations, Dr. LaSala gives us a book that delivers value to both lay readers and professionals alike.
The best writing moves us to new levels of understanding and action. This one achieves that standard. Coming Out, Coming Home introduces readers to young people who refuse to be diminished by homophobia. Instead they insist on claiming their place in the world. In doing so they transform their families and communities. And while witnessing their courage we gain understanding, inspiration, and hope.
