Sing You Home is an honest and moving story of contemporary relationships and the consequences of love and desire colliding with science and the law. From tragedy to self-discovery and joy, Zoe, Vanessa and Max will realise the undeniable truth - that you can't choose who you love. Compelling reading.
I say all that to say that this book definitely made me sad, angry, happy and a whirlwind of other emotions. I saw that Jodi Picoult acknowledged a member of Focus on the Family for helping with the book and I got nervous, I thought I'd made a mistake buying this book. But I'd seen a lot of praise for this book exposing the difficulties the LGBT families go through, so I read. And I read. I couldn't put this book down. Even when I slept, I dreamed about this story. Other than DADT (which is finally gone and hopefully DOMA will be too), I haven't been discriminated against for my sexuality since the church slammed the closet door in my face when I tried to come out as a teenager, but I do get scared of what my life will seem like if I try to have a family. My gf thinks about how it might be if we try to have children. How it's going to affect the kid(s) if they're teased at school, how much trouble we might go through just to have a kid, how we might be the subjected to anti-gay hatred. But I've always been hopeful. I'm lucky I live in California, and not my home state of Texas. But I realize we still have so far to go.
I am so thankful Jodi Picoult wrote this book. I saw a review that one person went from being anti-gay to tolerant and then read this book and now they realize what LGBTs through to try to have a family. I thought we were past a lot of these issues until I started watching the Republican debates and realized that a lot of them really don't want to see gays succeed. I hope this book opens many more eyes to see that all we want is the American dream, just like anyone else.
Oh, and what's up with the 4-stars? Well, I didn't like the ending that much. BUT, that's just me. Read it. You'll be glad you did, I sure am.
