Description

Praise for One True Way
*"Allie's levelheaded narration is refreshingly nuanced. Hitchcock unflinchingly characterizes the emotional struggles of being young and lesbian.... Throughout, Allie asks 'hard questions' about whether homosexuality is right in the eyes of the Bible or her community. Ultimately and affirmingly, her adult role models encourage her to be true to herself. A compelling and honest addition to the few existing stories about gay middle schoolers." -- Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW
"Shannon Hitchcock's important story shines a bright light on the struggles that LGBT kids had to deal with in the mid-1970s, giving us a context with which to understand more fully the same struggles that are happening today. In straightforward prose, this honest look shows us how far we've come, and at the same time doesn't deny how far we have to go." -- Kathi Appelt, National Book Award Finalist and Newbery Honor-winning author of The Underneath
"Young readers will find this novel to be ultimately uplifting and inspirational, particularly considering the current lack of middle-grade books with LGBTQ content." --Booklist
