      One of the most accurate and readable books about adolescence I have ever read. Even though it was painful at times, I enjoyed every heartbreakingly honest minute. A must-read for all teens and their parents. This should go on the shelf next to such greats as Tobias Woolf's This Boy's Life, Judy Blume's Forever, and Curtis Sittenfeld's Prep.

      he story revolves around the husband and wife Profs Barish, and their two children Simon and Lizzie. The Barish family has just moved to Tipton, a conservative and narrow community, two weeks before school opens, with Simon about to start his first year in high school. Jack and Genna Barish’s marriage is a little shaky, Jack has been tempted before, and there will be more temptation to come in the from Simon’s special teacher Marla Lindstrom. Simon is a little effeminate, overweight, openly [...]

      This book started slowly for me. I can see now that it was because Goodman really wanted us to become part of the family whose lives make up the book. And it's well worth the effort. Goodman uses a somewhat unique style of shifting narrators: mom, dad, gay teenage son Simon (there's also a younger daughter, Lizzie). The parents are college professors, and the family has just moved to Tipton, Ohio, to avoid the long commute they'd been making from Cincinnati.The story covers a number of months in [...]

      I took a workshop in Iowa with Eric Goodman this summer and read his most recent book, Twelfth and Race, before the workshop. I was interested in reading this book after hearing him talk about it. It's not an autobiography, but Goodman raised his own gay son in a college town in Ohio. (Child of My Right Hand is the story of a family in Ohio and part of the novel is about how they deal with homophobia in their small college town.) I love how everyone in the book is flawed yet you are rooting for [...]

      This is an excellent book about growing up gay in the U.S. where homophobia is more prominent than tolerance. It's an extremely touching story about Simon as he and his family move to a new town and he begins his junior year. It doesn't take long for the local rednecks to start the harassment and for the bullying to begin. However, it's not just about Simon. It's also about his whole family and how they too are impacted by the attacks. I highly recommend it.

      This book is a deadly bore. It's like reading a very dull Hallmark card about just how really groovey it is to have a gay son. It's complete drek. Why didn't the author just tell his son directly and save a few trees, not to mention my time and my patience? Rosey, peachy clean crap. Not on of these characters are believable. Not one of them makes any sense. Really -a very bad Hallmark card. Father knows best and all that blathering crap.I'm done. JM

      This is the kind of book I'm always looking for. The characters were real and the story came naturally from their personalities. Goodman's style is beautiful and I look forward to reading him again.

      I picked this up at the library just b/c it looked good. I enjoyed it, though I liked the first half better than the second half and I thought it ended rather abruptly, like he couldn't think of what else to say. But I'm glad I read it.

      An engaging story of a gay teen who faces the common challenges of high-school bullying combined with academic difficulties and parents who love their children (and each other) but have their own issues that complicate the family dynamics.

      Overall this book was well-written. My main quibble is with the characterization of the mother. She's supposed to be a women's studies prof and yet she hadn't seemed to absorb much feminist thinking at all. I think the author's sexism was showing a bit there.

      This was an extremely touching book that covered a variety of difficult subjects. It was truly an eye opener about the life of a homosexual teen boy.
