“I recommend this book highly. It is a must read for anyone dealing with coming out to their family, friends, and coworkers.” David Parker, PFLAG

What happens to the perfect family when a teenage boy comes out? That’s the question the Davidson family must deal with. Jamie, the gay son, just wants to live his life out of the shadows. Maggie, mother, teacher and psychologist, will do anything to protect her child, even side with him against her husband. Mike, a loving, giving father can’t reconcile his beloved Catholic Church’s indictment of homosexuality with his deep unconditional love for his boy. And Brian longs for things to go back to the way they were before the jocks at school started to taunt his brother and turn against him. But when tragedy strikes Jamie’s new boyfriend, they all begin to look at their lives differently and work harder to save their perfect family.

“The book should be in school libraries, psychologists’ offices and on teachers’ book shelves!” Stacy B. Killings, Certified School Psychologist

"It's been a long time since I've read a book that so comprehensively and compellingly speaks to a teenager's coming out experience." Reverend Lee Ann Bryce, United Church of Christ Minister

“Warmly poignant, realistic, dramatic and honestly presented, Shay’s story is an engrossing family saga for the modern world.” RT Book Reviews

The Perfect Family

A little syrupy for my taste, Ozzie & Harriet redux with one gay son. But, for families who are unfamiliar with the trials of teens coming out of the closet, it is informative, allows that it can cause a great deal of upheaval, that parents and siblings have a choice to support or reject the homosexual child.

Perfect Family Review

Just finished this wonderful book that tells a story of hardship and love conquering many difficult issues. I was pleasantly surprised with the deep story lines that were followed through to completion. I am sure much of this story is a good example of difficulties a person faces when coming out to the world. Like some characters, not everyone will be supportive in life but hopefully culture will continue to change for the better. Tears were shed both sad and happy during this great read. Thank you for sharing a firsthand perspective on these issues.

Awesome!!!!!!!

Needs to be a sequel written!!!! Great writing!!!! Please consider another one with this family!!!!
