This is a coming-of-age story not only for the protagonist, King, but also for his family. King must learn to let go of his identity as it's been defined by his late brother and be brave enough to come out and live as his true self. At the same time, King's mom and dad struggle to shed their prejudices and grow into the parents he needs them to be. Each character in this book is deeply flawed. Each one of them is trying their damn hardest to be better. Beautifully, beautifully told. ~ Reviewed by Nadja Tiktinsky
