Absolutely, Positively Not is a book for young readers (10-15) about a student who works through the coming out process. While the book is pro-gay teens, it is written for a younger audience and does not even begin to deal with more of the difficult aspects of being GLBTQ in today’s society. An easy, enjoyable read, useful for teens who might themselves be questioning, or have family members who are gay or lesbian. Not recommended for readers who would like more of the complex, emotional issues discussed and felt.
