Thank-you so much for writing this book.This was the first book I read after learning my eighteen year old son is gay. It brought me great comfort to know other parents went through the same kinds of feelings I did. I cried and yes laughed a little with each new story. It was easy to read, like reading someones diary but with their permission. The stories were honest and heartwarming. I am in the process of reading it again. This should be a must read for all newly told parents, their son or daughter is gay. Thank-you.

Format: Paperback
As a gay guy, this book has had a huge impact on me. I am 36 years old, have been with my partner and haven't yet officially told my parents I am gay. This book has made me do a lot of thinking lately. I would dearly love to share truthfully who I am with my family but I am not sure whether it would be too destructive. My mother is 72 and she lost my dad 4 years ago which seemed to take a lot of life from her. Thanks Bryce for getting this book together. It really is one of the best books on this subject that I have read in a long time.

I ordered this for a co-worker who was, unfortunately, shocked to learn his daughter was gay and struggling to understand. I didn't read it (thus my 4 stars) -- but, scanning it, it looks like it would be a good book and helpful, too.
