This book opened my eyes and heart to the smallest and mightiest details that one may encounter in this world, in a family, in a school, in a slumber party, in our bodies, when we are born into a body that isn't who we are. It addresses big issues in an honest and humorous way about what we keep private, how we hold secrets and what is nobody's business but our own.
The writing is smart and even though the author says it is a controversial subject it is in my opinion what most parents ultimately want for their children. It is in fact what most of us want for ourselves and the children we were, not to be judged, to be accepted for who we are. Life is hard enough and this story can shine a light on being part of the solution rather than adding to the problem of acceptance and dignity.
An excellent choice for a book group discussion.
