I'll Get There. It Better Be Worth The Trip by John Donovan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
What I loved so much about this novel was the idea that it doesn't necessarily end on a happy note. Things aren't completely resolved in Davy's world, and the notion of "I'll get there..." really comes into play. By the end, of the book he's still just a 13 year old boy, which shows he's no where near figuring his life out yet. He has, however, come to a much better place of understanding and respect with his special friend.
I think this is one of the most honest and truthful gay young adult novels out there. No wonder John Donovon is respected for this work so much. He really did set a precedent for future authors of the same category.
Brilliant read for all ages!
