This book is such a beautiful story that touches on issues that desperately need to be heard, especially in these times.

I can't wait to read more from Dean Atta!

Gr 9 Up—Biracial Michael works through his identity, race, and sexuality as he finds himself through his drag
persona, the Black Flamingo, in this novel in verse. Michael's story reminds readers that being true to who you are is
what makes you truly fabulous.

DNF at 45%. I thought this would be because I love drag and novels in verse, but I just don’t think this book is for me. I saw the author read some of the poems on YouTube, and those poems were great, but I don’t think they represented the entirety of what I read. I’m sad to DNF this book because I haven’t got to the drag part yet, but the book is almost halfway done and it hasn’t even touched on the part that I was excited for, which was the drag. I just don’t think I can force myself to keep reading for that part when I haven’t even enjoyed what I’ve already read. I appreciated some of the discussions on identity and I hope that someone else will enjoy this, though!… (mais)

I wasn't expecting the verse. I wasn't that into it in the first half but came around towards the end---maybe because Michael's poetry also gets better when he's in college.
