Husky By Justin Sayre
This is not a coming out book, not in the sense of sexuality, however, Davis may not be fully aware, but he is gay. His sexual orientation is just a part of the larger concept of finding himself through this transnational time before 8th grade.
Characters and scenes are well written and flow seamlessly. Sayre has crafted a book that represents perfectly some of the trials children and young people face as they mature and find who they are in the world and to their selves. The book is not very plot driven, but will no doubt pull at the heartstrings as you relate to those feelings of being unsure of yourself in the world.
Husky is the author Justin Sayre’s first novel. Sayre is a writer for major television comedies and the stage. He is a performer and comedian, described by the Village Voice as “Oscar Wilde meets Whoopi Goldberg.” He was named as one the Funniest People in Brooklyn by Brooklyn Magazine and called one of LA’s 16 Most Talented LGBT Comics by Frontiers Magazine.
Recognition for Husky: Deemed “a superb addition to the middle grade literary cannon” by VOYA Magazine and called “[a] moving journey of self-discovery . . .” by Publishers Weekly.
