Reseña del editor:

Bobby Griffith was an all-American boy ...and he was gay. Faced with an irresolvable conflict-for both his family and his religion taught him that being gay was " wrong" -Bobby chose to take his own life.

"Prayers for Bobby", nominated for a 1996 Lambda Literary Award, is the story of the emotional journey that led Bobby to this tragic conclusion. But it is also the story of Bobby's mother, a fearful churchgoer who first prayed that her son would be " healed, " then anguished over hi suicide, and ultimately transformed herself into a national crusader for gay and lesbian youth.

As told through Bobby's poignant journal entries and his mother's reminiscences, "Prayers for Bobby" is at once a moving personal story, a true profile in courage, and a call to arms to parents everywhere.

" The value of the Griffith story ...is undeniable. [It] should be required reading for every parent, every school teacher, and anyone who has ever doubted that words can kill." - "The" "Washington Post"

" This book will become an instant classic. And it will save lives of countless young people..." -- "The Advocate"

" ...A heartrending story of two journeys: Bobby's spiral toward death and Mary's toward personal responsibility. Aarons has performed a major public service, as has the entire Griffith family-especially Bobby, whose death will surely save many others." "--Los Angeles Times"

" The book is not a tragedy. Because of Mary Griffith's gutsy sensibility and her tireless efforts to help others "...Prayers for Bobby" is a book about hope." -- "San Francisco Chronicle"
