Lists with This Book. Oct 19, Virgowriter Brad Windhauser rated it really liked it. Very interesting book, but not one you would read casually.

The author challenges you to piece together the story with all the main character’s memory fragments. And keep your queer theory handy to guide you through the concepts. Still, a lot of interesting ideas and a useful ending message about dealing with your past before trying to move forward into a scary, uncertain future that is life.
