Written by the father of a gay child, this book is really more geared toward parents than any other audience. There is a lot of material on interacting with schools, teachers, and therapists; sometimes it feels like the author did all this research... so of course it has to be jammed in. It's not a bad book, but Joseph's actual story gets a bit lost in the shuffle.
