visión de conjunto:Críticas Venable's frequently heartbreaking recollection of the abuse and torment that people went through for being 'different' -- and the fact that it still happens all too frequently -- is a powerful reminder of how far we still have to go. --New York Times [This is] a story of family and friendship and love in all its forms perfect for the graphic novel format and elevated by the combined art and narrative...the characters shine fully human and permitted to be flawed. Hope prevails. A rare blend of tender and revolutionary. --Kirkus Starred Review Thought-provoking... A solid addition to YA shelves. --School Library Journal The interest here is in comparing GLBTQ experiences across a gap of generations--it was difficult then it can be difficult still but there's a promise of genuine happiness that makes following the heart worthwhile. --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books Reseña del editor Mads is pretty happy with her life. She goes to church with her family and minor league baseball games with her dad. She goofs off with her best friend Cat and has thus far managed to avoid getting kissed by Adam the boy next door. It's everything she hoped high school would be - until all of a sudden it's not. Her dad is hiding something big - so big it could tear her family apart. And that's just the beginning of her problems: Mads is starting to figure out that she doesn't want to kiss Adam - because the only person she wants to kiss is Cat. Just like that Mads's tidy little life has gotten epically messy - and epically heartbreaking. And when your heart is broken it takes more than an awkward uncomfortable tooth-clashing friendship-ending kiss to put things right again. It takes a whole bunch of them.
