The Stone Rainbow by Liane Shaw


Jack Pedersen is finding life complicated ever since he came out to his mom. Even though she’s been doing her best to understand, it’s obvious to Jack that his mom still wants to cry every time she says the word gay.  
Complications go into overdrive when a new student named Benjamin arrives at his high school, and Jack starts experiencing feelings he’s never allowed himself before. When a near tragedy turns life upside down, Jack realizes that it’s time to stop hiding and to stand up—for Pride, for Benjamin, and for himself.

My Rating - 3.5 Stars!

The Stone Rainbow is an interesting read by Liane Shaw.

The small town homophobia is illustrated in a fantastic and emotional manner. I seriously couldn't stop myself from gasping out loud at one point. 

This young adult romance is inspirational and will make a great read for any young adult who's looking for hope. This book includes a movement to bring acceptance to a small town that is wonderful.

One big problem I have is that the copy I rec'd had some horrible formatting issues. I don't know if that's an issue throughout, or if was just a problem with the reviewer copy I received.
