Rating: 4/5 stars.
The fact that this book exists makes me happy. It really does.
I know so many people who wish that there had been a book like It Gets Better when they were a teenager. Not just people who contributed to this book itself, but people I talk to in real life. Better late than never, right?
This book fulfills its purpose perfectly, as I am 100% convinced that it will, and it does, get better. While not superb in its structuring – there is a bit of redundancy and some of the stories are on the weaker side writing-wise – GLBT teenagers will easily relate to the trials and tribulations of growing up faced by the past generation.
I am forever grateful to Dan Savage and Terry Miller for editing this book and creating the inspiring and amazing It Gets Better Project. I hope one day as an adult to make a video myself and also write a book that will help the fight for GLBT rights.
