Praise for THE PORCUPINE OF TRUTH
"Bill Konigsberg's THE PORCUPINE OF TRUTH is at once heartwarming and heartbreaking, a funny and thought-provoking road trip with remarkable friends Carson and Aisha, who share tough lessons about mending fractures, forging bonds, and discovering grace. Undeniably human and unforgettably wise, this book is a gift for us all." -- Andrew Smith, author of GRASSHOPPER JUNGLE and WINGER

Praise for OPENLY STRAIGHT
"Lambda Literary Award-winner Konigsberg has written an exceptionally intelligent, thought-provoking, coming-of-age novel about the labels people apply to us and that we, perversely, apply to ourselves....With its capacity to invite both thought and deeply felt emotion, OPENLY STRAIGHT is altogether one of the best gay-themed novels of the last ten years." -- Booklist, starred review
"Konigsberg's lovely novel invites us to walk with Rafe through his season of assumed identity and his costly emergence into honesty. It's beautiful. It's a story of salvation." -- The New York Times Book Review
"This unusual treatment of the subject of labels, integrity, and the role of sexuality in identity forthrightly explores life after homophobia.... Readers and discussion groups looking for new and deeper ways to think about what it means to live honestly in a world that sorts by labels will find this fresh and evocative." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review
"Rafe is an effective blend of earnest, perceptive, and flawed, and the deepening hole of deception he digs for himself infuses the plot--a well-constructed web of interpersonal dramas--with almost unbearable tension. Konigsberg eviscerates the "don't ask, don't tell" philosophy, slyly demonstrating just how thoroughly assumptions of straightness are embedded in everyday interactions. For a thought-provoking, creative, twenty-first-century take on the coming-out story, look no further." -- Horn Book

Praise for THE PORCUPINE OF TRUTH
* "A friendship between a straight boy and a lesbian is relatively rare in YA fiction and is, accordingly, exceedingly welcome. And that's the truth." -- "Booklist," starred review

Reseña del editor:

Carson Smith is resigned to spending his summer in Billings, Montana, helping his mom take care of his father, a dying alcoholic he doesn't really know. Then he meets Aisha Stinson, a beautiful girl who has run away from her difficult family, and Pastor John Logan, who's long held a secret regarding Carson's grandfather, who disappeared without warning or explanation thirty years before. Together, Carson and Aisha embark on an epic road trip to find the answers that might save Carson's dad, restore his fragmented family, and discover the "Porcupine of Truth" in all of their lives.
