Finished It Looks Like This by Rafi Mittlefehldt. I received a copy from the publisher for review.
Mike’s life is mostly non-eventful. He has friends and a good relationship with his mom and little sister, Toby. (His dad is distant and sometimes angry.) And then he meets Sean…
This is a hard book and awful things happen. I’ve heard that used as an excuse to avoid (gay teens need affirming stories, not sad ones!) but honestly, sometimes horrible things happen. Sometimes parents aren’t supportive. Sometimes they’re awful at first and better later. And we all deserve to see our lives reflected back. Not everyone gets a pride parade right away.
I love this book and am excited to read everything Rafi Mittlefehldt writes from now on.
