Golden Boy

Golden Boy

by Abigail Tarttelin

Debbie Weiss (05/17/14): Max Walker is the perfect son, friend and brother. He is an outstanding athlete and student and the girls all have crushes on him. Life is not perfect, though. Max is intersex, a condition that used be be called "hermaphroditic." Born with both male and female genitalia, he looks like a boy and has been raised as a boy and the condition has been kept as a family secret, never discussed. That works well until Max is well into his teens and until the unthinkable happens. This book is about the dissolution of a family, but it is also about coming to terms with who you are and who you want to be. This outstanding book was written by a 26-year-old author and it is amazing that someone so young could have such wonderful insight into human nature. A quick but profound read!
