Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

JAMES LECESNE is co-founder of The Trevor Project, the only nationwide 24-hour crisis intervention and suicide prevention lifeline for LGBT and Questioning teens. He has published two young adult novels, Absolute Brightness and Virgin Territory. His solo show, Word of Mouth, was awarded both a NY Drama Desk Award and an Outer Critics Circle Award.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Review:

"Lecesne (Virgin Territory) updates his Oscar-winning short film, Trevor (itself developed from his one-man stage show), turning it into a novella. It's the story of 13-year-old Trevor, a boy who stages a re-enactment of Jacques-Louis David's La Mort de Marat in his bathtub and plans to dress up as his idol, Lady Gaga, for Halloween. (In the Trevor film, the teenager was a diehard Diana Ross fan.) While Trevor isn't ready to declare himself gay, he doesn't want anyone else doing so on his behalf, either ('Some of us prefer to remain a mystery — even to ourselves'). Trevor's interests (Lady Gaga, theater, his baseball-playing buddy Pinky) make him a target, however, culminating in the word 'faggot' being scrawled on his locker and a subsequent suicide attempt. Given the story's long history, it's no surprise that Lecesne nails Trevor's personality and voice, a combination of self-assuredness, sharp humor, and enthusiasm. The author also contributes pencil drawings that are as affecting as the prose; the gentleness of his shading echoes Trevor's softness, which the world is more than ready to harden. Ages 11 — 15. Agent: Bill Clegg, William Morris Endeavor." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
