I read this book this morning and enjoyed it very much. A very timely true story and should be read by everyone. I can only imagine the type of torment he felt. Prejudice in any form is just wrong. Be kind and don't bully anyone. It doesn't look good on people. Kindness and compassion are the true way to go.
Thank you to Rich Bateman for putting it out there for the world to see. Hopefully this book will go viral and open eyes and hearts. Not only in the south, but worldwide.
