"Are you willing to be a secret?"
So yes, I liked this a lot. So much, I ordered a paperback version at 50% already.
I loved Tanner & Sebastian. Maybe Tanner a bit more than Sebastian. But I guess Sebastian's journey to come out was more painful. Tanner was lucky having these amazing parents that got his back. Sebastian was an amazing guy, but unlucky to have been born in a Mormon environment. This is what he knew. And then he meets Tanner......
"I don't presume to know why Heavenly Father does the things He does, but I know in my heart that He has a plan for each of us.
He brought you into my life for a reason, Tanner. I don't know what that reason is, but I know that there's a purpose for it.
I KNOW that. Being with you isn't wrong. The way I feel about you isn't wrong."
And although I think Sebastian's family seemingly were okay people, it still boggles my mind that some parents struggle with the idea of probably rather having a dead child than a gay one.
The Morman Church/LDS is interesting though. I believe it evolves with how the world changes so hopefully one day when the world is accepting enough that we are able to love who we wish, churches will follow.
“A God worthy of your eternal love wouldn’t judge you for who you love while you’re here.”
I hope this day will come soon.
P.S. the title of this book is a clever one!!!
