Title: A Man’s Man
Author Name: Genta Sebastian
Publication Date & Length: June 19, 2015 – 174 pgs
I had a difficult time liking this book. I gave it 4 stars because it was well written, but I think I had a hard time with this story because of how much prejudice was inserted. I get the coming of age concept and that RJ had to fight through his insecurities, but it was the malicious intent throughout this book that I had a hard time with.
I guess I would say that Sebastian did an excellent job at provoking me. I enjoyed Jessica and her mom immensely and they were what held this book together for me.
I wish that I would have been able to read the dialogue between Stephen and Robert – I felt that not having their conversation was a huge hole in the story.
Overall, this was a good story of someone coming of age – working through their own prejudices.
