Mention of BEREFT at Bookriot

Alison Peters of the weblog Book Riot includes BEREFT in a list of Coming Out and Coming of Age YA LGBTQ books. It’s great to have my book listed among work by such folks as David Levithan, Francesca Lia Block & Malindo Lo.

Of BEREFT, she says:

It’s every young, closeted/confused gay, black boy’s worst nightmares, all at once.

That’s what I was aiming for–a portrait of the stress of being Other in a hostile environment.
