Title

When everything Feels Like the Movies

Description

"Gr 10 Up--Reid introduces readers to Jude, a gay teen who fantasizes about being a movie star. Jude, who has been given the nickname Judy by some classmates, is fairly comfortable with his sexual orientation as well as his desire to wear his mother's beautiful dresses and makeup. In order to deal with the homophobia he confronts at school and home, Jude slips into his fantastical life as a movie star constantly tortured by paparazzi. Throughout tire book, Jude explains how his school is like a movie set and his family, friends, and enemies are all players in the melodrama. This story is a whirlwind of gender-bending drama with plenty of pop culture references. Underneath the references to drugs and sex, the story is simply about a teen boy looking to find a place where he is accepted and celebrated. VERDICT A fun choice for readers who can handle mature content.--April Sanders, Spring Hill College, Mobile, AL"
