Ziggy, Stardust and Me

This book blew my mind completely. Things I loved: Ziggy, Stardust and Me is a coming of age tale about a gay kid undergoing conversion therapy in the 1970s. It follows Jonathon as he meets a Native American boy his age, and they become closer and closer. They both end up falling in love, but society, fathers, and Jonathon's internal struggle put a strain on everything. It's not a romance story, but one of self acceptance and love.
