how to review this book... so, obviously i'm glad that a book like this is out there, that this woman wants to send this message of love and acceptance. i'm sure that it's helpful for people who need or seek that message. it's absolutely an important thing for people to hear if they're struggling with loving their gay children or parents. it was extremely repetitive, though. and i know that's for a reason, so i can sort of ignore it. what's harder to ignore is how disjointed and poorly written it is. maybe it's just misbilled - it's a memoir, with a focus on her work as an advocate for gay rights. written by a non-writer.
