Young Adult/Teen
This post is from the site, http://www.leewind.org, "I'm Here. I'm Queer. What the Hell Do I Read?"


Ashley is 15 when she finally tells her mother about her stepfather's sexual abuse. Her mom doesn't believe her, and she's sent to live with her Dad, his new wife, Beverly, and their son in a small town in Texas called Patience.

Ashley joins a group of other high school students who have a lot of challenges to overcome in Beverly's summer school English class.

The novel "Ironman" by Chris Crutcher (which includes a plotline where the main character discovers his teacher and mentor is Gay and has to come to terms with that) is included in the class readings.

When the head football coach finds out his son has read this book with gay content, he blames the book for his son growing away from him and is afraid the book made his son gay.

A huge controversy ensues, and throughout, Ashley and the other teens struggle to find the strength to claim their own lives and their healing. To find...

Courage in Patience.

Courage in Patience, a story of hope for those who have endured abuse
