Freakboy - Kristin Elizabeth Clark I sat down at noon today to start reading this. I didn't put it on my Goodreads because I wanted to try a chapter before I committed to reading it in front of all of my social networks. I have this thing about novels in verse not really working for me. Maybe they do and I just don't read them often enough.

Freakboy is amazing. The subject matter is tough and it is dark but there are slivers of hope lined up inside for you while reading. I cried, I hoped, I wanted more than anything for Brendan to find his way. This is such an important book for LGBT teens to read. I hope librarians and teachers and those who are able to reach these teens put copies in the hands of those that need it.
