Reviews
This novel in verse was an absolute joy to read! Telling the coming of age story of Michael, a mixed-race gay guy who makes his way in the word by first navigating his own identity and exploring all aspects of his individuality. We follow Michael's journey of self discovery from childhood to adulthood as he deals with incidents of racism and homophobia in amongst all the good stuff of life, that all inform the development of his onstage drag persona The Black Flamingo! Loved it - would highly recommend.
