Book description
An insightful look at the intersection of sexuality, race and family values in post-modern America. There really are all sorts of families. Thirteen year old Zach knows this because his own family breaks all the rules. A biracial teenager enduring the tribulations of adolescence, Zach lives in Seattle with his mum, her lesbian partner, and their gay neighbour, Josiah. On top of that, his new best friend is a young runaway who hustles men on the street for a living and Zach's after-school job is turning into a nightmare of shame and molestation. This insightful and craftily written novel will take readers on a wild carnival ride that redefines the term "family life".
