MY THOUGHTS: This book
had a chance to show people how to push
aside biases and grow as a person, and how to use the resources around
you. In my opinion this book doesn't do all these things. I didn't think the author gave the subject of Homosexuality a good explanation or the friends of the that person the right information. I give this book 2.......
