    Under the Rainbow ePUB ¸ Under theeBook Ü under pdf, rainbow pdf, Under the mobile, Under the Rainbow ePUBI felt similarly about this as I did about Red White and Royal Blue which for most people would be a compliment but for me sadly it is not I was not expecting for this to be a YA book but given the tone and the coming of age nature I think it's best to describe it that way This book seems interested in posturing than actually telling a compelling story complete with a definition of hetero shaming on the first page As a gay man who was bullied for being myself in high school even I did not see myself represented in these characters or their stories I was hoping to read a story about what it would actually be like to be a ueer person living in the most homophobic town in America what I got is some fantasy wish fulfillment world where homophobic tendencies aren't embedded into the fabric of existence and can easily be unwoven

    Under the Rainbow ePUB ¸ Under theeBook Ü under pdf, rainbow pdf, Under the mobile, Under the Rainbow ePUBWhen Big Burr Kansas is named the most homophobic place in America a group of activists moves in to try to make a difference The novel starts from the perspective of one of their children and moves from there to others in the town and in the group Laskey captures the pressures of small town life and the destructive nature of homophobia but also the beauty of embracing your true self or learning to accept your neighbor My only slight uibble was as a reader connecting with a narrator and then losing the internal perspective of their story I still feel concerned for Avery and Zach and want to know what happened with that

    Under the Rainbow ePUB ¸ Under theeBook Ü under pdf, rainbow pdf, Under the mobile, Under the Rainbow ePUBLovely debut novel that follows a task force of LGBT people sent to The Most Homophobic Town in America Big Burr Kansas I liked this book the writing is solid and Laskey did a great job of setting us in scenes This book jumps from character to character and I felt a loss that we didn't get to know certain characters like Avery Zach even Karen deeper It felt like we got too short of a time with each character Some of this could have been because I'd just read Girl Woman Other which is a master class in shifting viewpoints and interconnected characters This book was a solid debut
