This was a very tough book for me to read because it opened doors and old trunks that I though were locked forever! My dad is gay and for so many years I thought that I was the only pkid who had a homosexual parent. I had friends in college who never come home with me on break because they were not allowed around gay people. Man did that hurt! This may have been a hard book for me to read, but it has helped me so much to know that I am not alone and that I can learn to accept who my dad is and love him anyway. Thanks you, Thank you.
This is a book about a woman who was raised by a lesbian mother. The journey of the author from childhood through adulthood, from pain, anger, neglect, abuse, forgiveness and love is incredible. The honesty and openess of the author is refreshing and it gives the perspective of a child with a homosexual parent. The ramification of childhood has long lasting effects as evidenced throughout the book. The writing is simple and blunt and it transported me into the pages of Jakii's life-which could easily be mine. There were times when I threw the book across the room in anger, there were moments when I was hysterical with laughter and throughout the entire book, I was brought to tears. This book caused me to examine my own relationship with my parents (who are not gay). It caused me to examine my relationships with others and it stirred a desire in me to know more of this love that Jakii found much later in her life after becoming a christian.
