Jumping Off the Planet


This book won the Gaylactic Spectrum Award in 2001 for positive explorations of LGBT issues in SF, Fantasy, and Horror. I chose to read it in my own little challenge to read as many of books on the Worlds Without End LGBTQ Speculative Fiction Resource list as I could this year. Not all books that win awards are my cup of tea, but this one was very tasty. It's primarily about the breakup of a family told from the viewpoint of Charles, the middle child. I found it a very good read, but difficult because of the subject matter.
