Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up—Seventeen-year-old JT Barnett lives a humdrum existence in Clearwater, FL, working in the family gas station, drifting through school, and dreaming of fabulous days to come. His one attempt at drag led to public humiliation in a school talent show, so he is reluctant when Seth, his wildly attractive, overachieving boyfriend, encourages him to enter the Miss Drag Teen pageant in New York City. The prize of a four-year college scholarship ultimately convinces JT, and after lying to their parents, he, his best friend Heather, and Seth embark on a spring break road trip that leads to fights, honest reckonings, and encounters with a cast of remarkable personalities. With the exception of spiteful Tash, the diverse group of pageant contestants offer JT acceptance and a tantalizing glimpse into a brighter world. This joyous, life-affirming novel moves at a brisk pace, hitting the perfect balance between action and introspection. The sympathetically drawn characters—Heather struggles with fat prejudice, impossibly perfect Seth is hiding a secret, JT is riddled with anxiety and self-doubt—are appealingly authentic. While their world is not entirely free of bigotry, homophobia refreshingly does not define the boys' relationship or lives. The only false note is the resolution of the rivalry between JT and Tash, which feels a bit too pat. Pulling back the curtain on the glamorous world of drag, this novel explores universal themes of family, friendship, and identity with verve and panache. VERDICT A first purchase.—Laura Simeon, Open Window School Library, WA
