The setting is Olympia, Washington as one follows the characters through their lives and the events that shape them. Clayton puts the reader solidly in the time frame and place, which he obviously has experienced. The LGBTQ issues are a integral part of the story, which unfortunately, continue today, often with devastating fallout. The story delivers this at the personal and community levels. It may be heresy to bring in Stephen King as a literary guru, but King’s advice to authors was first of all, write a good story.
This is not a long book. But with the setup of these characters, it would be great to see a sequel to this story.
