"As much a book about coming out as it is a book about simply
coming to be, Brave Face is the bravest memoir I've read in
years. Illuminating, brutally honest, poignant, and sometimes laugh
out loud funny, this isn't a book just for queer kids, it's a book
for any teen (or adult) who feels left out, rejected, confused, and
scared about their place in the world." ----Kathleen Glasgow, New
York Times bestselling author of Girl in Pieces
"Shaun David Hutchinson has been hammering out one brilliant book after another, and Brave Face is his most honest and courageous one yet. This profound memoir is a triumph--a full-throated howl to the moon to remind us why we choose to survive and thrive."
--Brendan Kiely, New York Times bestselling author of Tradition
