Anatomy of a Misfit by Andrea Portes

Anatomy of a Misfit by Andrea Portes

I know that this is about a romance and a boy and a tragic ending, but I cannot move past the slurs. I believe people with influence have the responsibility to encourage a community of respect.  If this was a book about how racist a place can be, how homophobic […]
