Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Firefly is a fantastic find: a tightly-written short story with a gay male teen character who is sympathetic in his total self-abandonment for the straight brother of his friend. It's actually a very sad story, but it tugs at the heartstrings in just the right way, and the end was really poignant.
