I don't know quite what to say about this book. It does an excellent job at representing an era in time where LGBTQ had even fewer rights, but at one point it also makes blatant, negative comments about bisexuality that are never challenged by any of the characters. All in all, the plot has a tendency to be aimless, and I was a bit put of when the word sperm was used on page 2 because in my opinion you have to work up to things like that. The book did, however put forth a very good perspective, and i find it important for that reason.
