Life rarely goes the way one expects. When you're younger, you think that school, and all its politics, … Continue reading Life is unexpected

I am reading Openly Straight by Bill Konigsberg

I am reading a book Openly Straight by Bill Konigsberg. It's about a gay guy who's tired of being that "gay guy" around school, so his solution is to switch schools and to pretend to be straight (Or not to be out though not necessarily back in the closet - I don't get it, but … Continue reading I am reading Openly Straight by Bill Konigsberg
