Haskel Himself by Gary Seigel

The story is set in 1966. Haskell lives with his mother in New York. But she barely sees her, because of her work. When his mother suddenly, with no warning, decides to take time off work and travel with her boyfriend, it comes as a shock to Haskell. He has to move across the country, to live with his aunt and uncle in California. Leaving his school, from everything he knows.
He is faced with bullying, a lot. He is not the kind of guy, to fit in. He loves theater, acting, has no idea about most of the sports. And he might be gay. 
Growing up is tough at any age, it seems extra hard for Haskell.
It's a beautiful story of growing up, of being different and finding yourself in difficult times. 
The writing is just beautiful. I felt like I was there with Haskell. 
It's the kind of story that touches you, moves you, pulls at all your heartstrings...
I highly recommend it! ratingπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š coverπŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’› received from Xpresso Book Tours
