Read full description of the books:
A gay novel with a straight guy as the protagonist? Yep! and in this case it works. Willie is packing up his grandma's home following her death. He'd been planning on leaving her to go away to college but the old gal couldn't tolerate being left and up and died on him. Just like his mom had when he was little.
While clearing out the house Willie finds a box of old letters that had been sent to his mother and in reading them he finds out about his past and that of his family. Seems not everything his grandma said had been true.
Overall this book has the appeal of a mystery without the usual detective story feel. We keep getting revelation after revelation, and just like a detective story, some characters look momentarily guilty only to be vindicated thereafter.
What's left is the story of a family and the coming of age of a young man who's been "protected" from the truth for a very long time.
Long ago I decided that every family was dysfuntional in some way and this story doesn't do anything to dispel that belief. But it does add a nuance... that no matter how dysfunctional a family is, there is still some worth there.
This is a great read and it's riveting enough that I finished it in a single day. At 93 pages, that's not too surprising but I feel that I've been through something of an ordeal much like the protagonist has been.
Still, this book is definately worth the read.
