good book about knowing yourself
This is the journey of Jim 18y/o who is dying to be normal and basically straight. He tends to hide in his made up country "Wallaconia". Hiding from the world and himself.
This isn't a romance book, its a self discovery one. I didn't care much for Nate I think he could've found an easier "escape". I thought Pat was awesome.
We spend the length of the book watching him accept who he really is; his sexuality and self-worth.
