Out

Publisher: Barrington Stoke

Review

When Natalie falls in love with her best friend Will, she doesn't know how to tell him. But just as she's plucked up the courage to confess how she feels, Will shares his own secret - he's gay and has fallen for another classmate, Paul. Should Will come out and tell the truth about his sexuality? And should Natalie tell him how she really feels?

This thoughtful story for teenagers is dyslexia-friendly and particularly aimed towards less confident readers. However although it's a quick and simple read, Kendrick does justice to the complex feelings and emotions of the characters as they deal with the challenges of their changing relationships. Accompanied by black and white illustrations, this is a sensitive, satisfying and ultimately positive story about friendship, growing up and coming out
