Staff Recommendation: The Vast Fields of Ordinary

Set during the summer after high school graduation, this book tells of the developing identity of a young gay man in the Midwest. An important read for all teens, who will identify no doubt with the feelings, misbehavior, and conflict, this is also a rewarding read for adults. The narrative about how late adolescents learn to ‘do’ gender is bold and touching in its straightforwardness.
