    Things I learned from Stay and Fight:- people are mean- people are even meaner to you if you're different- and even more so if you're also poor or any kind of minority- but it's still alright to be differentStay and Fight was gritty, sometimes brutal and cynnical, real and rough, but it was also a g...

    Queer family (dyke couple + son + nonrelated "Mean Aunt") in rural Appalachia living a hard glowing life on the land that gets disrupted the minute their son interfaces with "Outside" via school; as the pipeline cutting across their acreage portends doom.

The boy is my favourite character. And this is the only character that kept me going. The lgbt issue was handled well. The creepiness ...

    Stay and Fight is one of those odd books that make themselves so very difficult to review, by way of being incredibly good and incredibly hard to pin down to why. It's not going to be for everyone - the book kicks off with the story of a man who almost let his p*nis rot off one winter rather than se...
