Like another reviewer, I read this book in one sitting. Even though my teenage years were the 60's rather than the 80's, I totally got where he was coming from. I also look forward to more books from Rob.

Review by: Adrian Hutchins on Dec. 24, 2012 :
I really enjoyed this book and read it in one go from cover to cover. The author has a wonderful way with words. The main characters growing up experience seems to mirror that of a lot of gay people which is a great shame. Hopefully now that homosexuality is more acceptable, GLBT children can have a better childhood.
Looking forward to the authors next book.

Review by: Eric Prime on July 28, 2011 :
I loved the start of this book. The main character, a young boy, is wise beyond his years and it is a very funny read. I downloaded the sample and then quickly purchased the entire book. Over the course of the book the young boy grows up into a teenager and we are brought along to witness his experiences. It turns into something more common and expected (still is good read) but not the page turner it was in the first part of the book. I wish the main character could have stayed as interesting as he was as a child.
