Tarttelin, Abigail. Golden Boy. Atria Books, 2013.
This book is told from multiple viewpoints, and it reads a bit like a Jodi Picoult book, except for the very graphic rape scene at the beginning of the book. For that reason alone, I recommend extreme caution when reading, especially if you are a rape survivor. Otherwise, this is an okay book, and it does feature an intersex character, which is fairly unusual even in LGBT literature. I will NOT be putting this book in my junior high library, nor would I likely recommend it to teens, but it's a good book to have in a public library's adult collection.
Recommended for: adults, older teens
Red Flags: Graphic rape scene
Overall Rating: 3/5 stars
