Driftwood

Ens the girls find in a bin at school end up living there Then Paul moves in because he needs rescuing too I first read this a decade ago when I was 1011 and at the time it was my favourite book I picked it up and reread it on a whim today and I never realised the impact it had on me Not a positive impact far from it For a book aimed at kids it s horrific The way being gay is treated as a problem something to fear and be afraid of Or the way it suggested keeping uiet about being bullied Or the way it introduced the idea of self harm as a viable solution to feeling unhappyWas any of it intended Probably not But as an 11 year old that was being bullied and was deeply unhappy in themselves it certainly gave me the idea that hurting myself was a valid way to cope And it certainly helped reinforce the idea that being gay was something to be ashamed of and it left me all kinds of fucked up for years Rated yikes out of 10
