Finished reading Brent Hartinger's young adult novel Geography Club (HarperTempest/HarperCollins, 2003) today. It's a lovely little book about the challenges faced every day by gay kids in high school - in particular, the book's narrator, Russel Middlebrook, who as sweet, adorable, and neurotic as only a high school kid can be. Some of the best fiction being published these days is directed towards young adults, and this novel is definitely near the front of that list. Highly recommended.
