Good for a better understanding
I, personally, was in sex-ed/health class when I was eleven. I thought it was interesting that I was in it so young, but nowadays things like this are being taught or just picked up along the way by kids going to school and listening to the talk there. Especially considering that LGBTQ acceptance has become so engraved into many lives these days, if a kid hasn't heard enough to be mature about this book by the time they are 12 or 13, I would be very surprised. Raina Telgemeter gives a unique view to going to school and being friends with individuals of another sexual orientation, and sound it with her signature humor and beautiful illustrations. Callie is a realistic depiction of a 7th grade girl navigating school, theater, crushes, and keeping her friends' secret. Rather than being offended, i am happy to read a book that portrays a young girl staying true to her friends and sticking with them no matter what they feel. This book is real, heartfelt, and honest. Five stars!
