    I was attracted to this novel because of its lgbt subject matter as I have come to develope a special place in my heart for the said genre While it didn’t blow my mind it was a satisfying readThis book embodies the innocence of youth with its uncoloured view of the wider world That then slowly gets deconstructed as they grow and are exposed to other people and their opinions Both boys Ryan and Jack need to fi

Y in the water but he knows that Jack needs help The school is full of rumors about Jack's sexuality and he has few friends Almost against his better judgement Ryan decides to invite Jack on a trip to Comic Con he's planned with his b. From the outset it is clear that this book is going to contain LESSONS for the reader about having TOLERANCE for and not making ASSUMPTIONS about people with a different life experience than their own I suppose that s part and parcel of the YA genre and maybe having that intent so in your face is part of why I skipped over that genre even when I was a young adult Then again maybe it was just boring to be given lessons in things that were already second nature Looking at current political leadership in much of America accepting differences and spurning prejudices are clearly lessons many Americans have thus far failed to learn They d do well to pick up Liane Shaw s Caterpillars Can t Swim which has a realness to it that s graceful than grittyThe main conflict in the story has to do with Jack an unpopular and troubled schoolmate of Ryan through whose eyes the story is told Ryan lives life in a chair and as he is the only one in his school in a wheelchair the challenges he has in socializing especially with girls are uniue to him Jack on the other hand is perpetually being harassed and bullied for being gay though he hasn t come out to anyone Jack doesn t seem certain of many aspects of his identity sexual gender but the one thing he s sure of is that life itself is becoming too much of a burden to bearRyan Jack and even Ryan s friend Cody all must sort out for themselves how they re going to face the challenges of BEING DIFFERENT from someone else whether that difference is found in themselves in a friend or in a complete strangerIt s a good book entertaining and well written I suspect that it s mostly going to serve as a feel good story for readers who already have learned the lessons the story contains It doesn t strike me as the sort of book that people with closed minds are likely to pick up and readMany thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the free advance copy
