This book is extremely helpful and more people should read it. It has a chapter on God and Religion, which I think is cool because a lot of teens are confused and stressed because they are torn between their religion and their sexual orientation. This book answers questions that teens just like us have asked him or ourselves. He gives websites and numbers and even books and movies on this subject and I will check some of them out. I have a lot more to say but this is getting pretty long and I don't have the right words but you get my drift: Read it. It's awesome and really helped me out.
P.S - There is a chapter on Sex and it's not suitable for children under 13 (In my opinion. I already knew a lot of that stuff) so if you are younger and considering reading this book, ask your parents if you can read that chapter or have them read it first. If you are keeping this secret from your parents, you might want to skip that chapter. (But if you read it, no one is judging you, you ARE a teen ;D )
