Reviews

"Another heartbreaking novel that pits religion and sexuality against each other, but with an important, culturally specific perspective."--Kirkus Reviews "Readers will yearn for Evan to achieve the freedom, happiness, and love he deeply desires."--Publishers Weekly "A poignant, sometimes explosive debut."--Booklist Previews "At once timely and timeless. A funny/wise/poignant triumph of a debut."--Jennifer Niven, New York Times bestselling author of All the Bright Places "Surmelis gives readers a protagonist to truly cheer for. A beautifully crafted story."--School Library Journal (starred review) "Angelo Surmelis writes with unflinching honesty, wisdom, and heartbreaking grace about the struggle for self when family is one of your greatest obstacles."--Kerry Kletter, author of The First Time She Drowned "This is a story of survival and of triumphing to become one's authentic self. An important book that will serve as a lighthouse for gay teenagers and build empathy in all readers, no matter their backgrounds."--Jennifer Mathieu, author of Moxie and The Truth About Alice "Your heart will break and beat for Evan Panos. This is a soaring and courageous debut, unafraid to tackle the weighty subjects of faith and love."--Jeff Zentner, award-winning author of The Serpent King
