Review: A Boy's Own Story (The Edmund Trilogy #1)

User Review  - Inkpenshmee - Goodreads

I love Edmund White's writing. This book is an insightful read for people from broken homes or for people who want to look at adolescence through a brilliant man's eyes. It's also a gay story, so your enjoyment of the story might related to how much you relate to or take an interest in that. Read full review
