Honestly, I woud have never read this book if it weren't for Tiya's glowing review. From the goofy author pseudonym and the spoofish title, to the weird cover; I just couldn't take it seriously and had no real desire to go there. But I did. And I was pleasantly surprised. It had a depth I clearly wasn't expecting and dealt with some weighty issues with good grace. I had a few niggles, but then again, I always do. Specifically Andrew's surprisingly easy acceptance of his sexuality; given the years of issues he had, I would have expected a bit more resistance. I guess it seemed too easy. Ultimately, I enjoyed it quite a lot and wish I hadn't been so shallow and read it sooner.
