    I work with middle schoolers, and every now and then I dabble a bit in adolescent literature I have to say, I m frequently disturbed by what I find in the genre There are a lot of mass marketed young adult books filled with pain and angst There are a lot of books about drug use, alcohol, abuse, pregnancy, STDs, and all of that crap that supposedly comes along with being a teenager.I sort of understand why young adult lit can be so yucky and diactic much of the time After all, you can t ignor I work with middle schoolers, and every now and then I dabble a bit in adolescent literature I have to say, I m frequently disturbed by what I find in the genre There are a lot of mass marketed young adult books filled with pain and angst There are a lot of books about drug use, alcohol, abuse, pregnancy, STDs, and all of that crap that supposedly comes along with being a teenager.I sort of understand why young adult lit can be so yucky and diactic much of the time After all, you can t ignore these issues when you write for teenagers they re going through a lot of this stuff And yet, in order to sell young adult books about heavy issues, they have to, you know, send a message.But they don t have to be depressing And that s what is so totally wonderful about Totally Joe It s about a kid, Joe, who is twelve or thirteen years old You ll have to excuse me for forgetting details I read this awhile ago And he s gay.Now normally the phrase He s gay, when applied to a kid in a young adult novel, would pretty much be a death sentence The poor protagonist would be depressed and suicidal He would be ashamed and fucked up, and probably hated by his best friends and abandoned by his family and in need of psychotherapy and so forth Reading that, any closeted gay middle schooler is probably going to have a panic attack and feel even worse about themselves.But Joe isn t like that Instead, he s this delightfully fun kid that comes across as perfectly real and genuine, who also happens to have a bunch of delightfully awkward and dorky friends, that are also real And he s gay, but he doesn t beat himself up about it Rather, he thinks that s OK, and his hippie ish family thinks it s OK And I really think that we want gay adolescents to grow up without too much undue pain and misery, we ought to have them readbooks like this one

    This book is awesome And I found it entirely by accident I picked up a bunch of new books in my library, and recognizing the author as the Bunnicula author, grabbed this one This book is VERY different, and deals with a much needed, though sensitive, topic Joe is in 7th grade and his teacher has assigned a year long writing project an alphabiography For each letter of the alpabet, Joe has to write about himself Early in the alphabet, we learn that when Joe was little, he preferred Bar This book is awesome And I found it entirely by accident I picked up a bunch of new books in my library, and recognizing the author as the Bunnicula author, grabbed this one This book is VERY different, and deals with a much needed, though sensitive, topic Joe is in 7th grade and his teacher has assigned a year long writing project an alphabiography For each letter of the alpabet, Joe has to write about himself Early in the alphabet, we learn that when Joe was little, he preferred Barbies to GI Joes, and hated the trucks his grandparents gave him We soon learn that Joe has always known he s different, and in fact, he knows that he is gay As he writes in his diary alphabiography he s always been attracted to guys, loves E.T., thinks Keanu Reeves is hot, and has a crush on another 7th grade boy who likes him back Joe is not afraid to be different but he is picked on and most of his classmates know, at least on some level, that Joe is gay His boyfriend also knows he s gay, but unlike Joe doesn t have a supportive family to lean on I like the way the subject is dealt with with great sensitivity and honesty I would love to find a way to teach with this book I am glad it s available in the library

    This book is a multicultural children s story that discusses the life of a middle school boy, Joe, who is gay I loved the title page of this book because it catches the reader s attention and is so significant to the story The book is written as a alphabiography, or like a journal that goes through each letter where he has to write about something in his life, ending each letter with a life lesson I thought that this was such a creative and interesting way to tell his story It made the book This book is a multicultural children s story that discusses the life of a middle school boy, Joe, who is gay I loved the title page of this book because it catches the reader s attention and is so significant to the story The book is written as a alphabiography, or like a journal that goes through each letter where he has to write about something in his life, ending each letter with a life lesson I thought that this was such a creative and interesting way to tell his story It made the bookexciting to read and all of the life lessons were either so cute, funny, and or very meaningful With the use of an alphabiography, the book has great character build up since some chapters are actually about the characters of the book and it also starts off in the beginning of the school year all the way until the end The book also does a great job with explaining diversity There is a boy who is very flamboyant, a boy who is a closet homosexual, an interracial couple white girl and black boy , and a bully It does a great job to show the different diversity that can be found at a school and is very relatable to all types of people The only negative comment I would say that with the main character being a flamboyant homosexual, it goes along with the stereotype that a majority of homosexual men are very flamboyant Overall, I really did love reading this book because it does such a great job at portraying a middle school and trying to figure out how to fit in or in this case, to stand out I would recommend it to anyone
