Uldn’t keep going that he had no future And so he followed through on trying to make that a realityThankfully Shaun survived and over time came to embrace how grateful he is and how to find self acceptance In this courageous and deeply honest memoir Shaun takes readers through the journey of what brought him to the edge and what has helped him truly believe that it does get bette. The thing I appreciate about books dealing with any challenging aspects of growing up or being a person in the world and in Shaun's case being gay and having depression is when they don't end on a happy note but end on the fact that being OKAY is the goal That finding a space to be OKAY is the challenge and the work done to manage life on realistic terms This book does thatThere are trigger warnings throughout as this book delves into life with depression suicide ideation and an attempt as well as what life is like being gay and not having a strong sense of self and acceptance in part because the world around you offers none of the role models you deserve to see Shaun doesn't shy away from sharing some of the poor decisions he made or the behaviors he engaged in that don't put him in a great light but those are real and they're raw and they're honest and vulnerable and the kinds of things that young people will see and understand and appreciateA compelling moving powerful read from an author who leans into his imperfections as a young person while being realistic that being brave isn't a reuirement of being a person and sometimes things suck and are hard and yet they can and do improveand finding that space to be OKAY It can happen will happen even if it takes time And it's also okay to be frustrated by that
