Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 006447304X, Paperback)Adam Mastoon's beautifully reproduced photographs of gay, lesbian, and bisexual young people are a revelation: each subject, posed yet casual, looks directly into the camera and invites us into his or her life. But the book is more than a photo gallery, and the personal statements written by each young person brings a sense of what it means to be a gay youth today. In a world in which gay teens are told that they either don't exist or should change their sexual orientation, The Shared Heart is a beacon of hope, clarity, and joy.

Athletes, painters, class presidents, and performing artists, the people in Adam Mastoon's compelling portraits recount experiences that are as diverse as their backgrounds. One man recounts his religious family's struggle to accept his gay identity. Another tells of the challenge to reconcile her bisexuality with her Asian-American heritage. Others recall the solace of long afternoons in the library devouring books that assured them that they were not alone. Together these candid accounts of navigating adolescence express the fundamental need we all share for acceptance and freedom of expression.
