Gr 7 Up A welcome addition to a very limited field: a nonfiction approach to homosexuality aimed at junior high ages. Landau includes a few first-person monologues on growing up gay by homosexual men and women; their teenage misery comes through vividly and contrasts with the drier details on AIDS, court battles and NIMH findings. A chapter on telling parents and family would benefit those being told as well as those telling. While the style is well-reasoned, sympathy is clearly with the teenager who is struggling with adolescence and realization of homosexuality. Partly sociological overview, partly comforting tips on coping, this would be useful in most libraries serving young adults. Hanckel's A Way of Love, a Way of Life (Lothrop, 1979) has more interviews with gay and lesbian young adults who have come to terms with their sexual orientation, but Landau provides needed statistical and legal updates. Hunt's Gay: What You Should Know About Homosexuality (Farrar, 1977) gives a general understanding, but does not help young gays deal with their own confusion. Unlike Landau, who makes the statement early on that ``homosexuality is. . .a viable life-style alternative,'' Rekers' Growing Up Straight (Moody, 1982) openly opposes the gay life style.Anne Osborn, Riverside Public Library, Calif.
