The struggle to find your identity while growing up is a common experience for us all. Now, imagine that you belong to an orthodox religious community and you are gay - so your sexual identity is entirely at odds with your environment. What would you do to find acceptance? This memoir follows the very personal and lonely struggle of a young man forced to deal with this very scenario, with dramatic and moving consequences for his family, friends and most importantly, himself.

What a compelling read! I was totally engrossed reading it whenever I could, you cannot help but to sympathise and empathise with Evan. Knowing that this is an autobiographical account and not just a novel made it even more interesting and shocking alike. I am in awe of Evan's strength shown throughout the book but also of his bravery to share a very personal and intimate story with the world in the form of this book. I look forward to the follow-up.

What a captivating read. Evan takes us on the journey of his coming out as a young man in a society which is not yet ready to accept difference. Evan allows us in the most intimate moments of his life and describes every moment with such detail that we can't help but feeling concerned, curious, devastated, happy or lonely with him. It is a story of resilience and courage that is definitely worth discovering. The clever ending made me want to read the next book as soon as I finished this one!

It fascinated me from page one and kept me engaged until the last word. It sure is an inspiring and supportive example for those facing similar situations. I strongly recommend reading it!
