I think that this book was mistitled. It could more properly have been called The Birth of Miss Geneva Flowers. As with most births, there is a good deal of pain, but the ordeal ends with some promise for the future.This is the story of Erick, a young catholic boy, and a junior at the local catholic school. His family has been devastated by the death of his younger brother, and all are still feeling the after effects of that tragedy several years later. Although they've attempted to move on and [...]
Possibly one of the most touching and entertaining books I had ever read. The story is poignant yet laughable, the plot is intensely real as the characters are portrayed richly vivid. I was engrossed from the very first page and devoured the rest. I definitely recommend this novel - although reader should approach this with an open and accepting mindset.
I read this book because there were some really strong reviews for it. I got 150 pages in and still couldn't figure out if this was an extremely well written book about a narrator/main character that is completely overdramatic and vapid, or if this was just bad writing. I'm more inclined to think the latter. The ultimate problem is not enough time elapses for the reader to feel that the situation has earned the reaction Erick gives to it. People who have never been a gay teen, or known one, will [...]
This was one of those books that I found with the library database. It was a coming-of-age story about a boy who is alienating himself from his family. His is as gay as they come but his family is overwhelmed due to the death of his younger brother. The boy meets a Diva who takes him under his wing and gives him a place to land while he is finding himself. AIDS makes an expected appearance and the drug abuse can be intense but it is necessary to the story. There is a warm ending but that’s fin [...]
Erick is young and naive and dramatic, but his story is Worth reading for the narrative voice alone. He drops out of high school and moves in with his campy drag queen friend Chloe (they generally spend a lot of time smoking pot, trying on "fierce" outfits, and hanging out at the mall) and experiments with drugs, sex and transforming himself into Geneva Flowers.
I LOVED this book. Such a page turner. It makes you laugh, makes you cry, makes you cringe, makes you smile. This was my favorite book for a long time, but its been years since I read it. Its super edgy and controversial, and I love that.
teenage angst at its finest. at points hinges on trashy romance, but an overall emotionally-legitimized story.
MAybe if I was a secret gay teenage boy in the mid-west this would be my bible on how to behave. Instead my skin crawled, girlfriend!
A fall back rereader for me I loved this coming of age book
