The Black Flamingo
Fiercely told, this is a bold and timely coming-of-age story, told in verse about one boy's journey to self-acceptance. Perfect for fans of Sarah Crossan, Poet X and Orangeboy.
One boy's journey coming to terms with his identity as a mixed-race gay teen. This is a story about the power of embracing your uniqueness. Sometimes, we need to take charge, to stand up wearing pink feathers - to show ourselves to the world in bold colour.
I masquerade in makeup and feathers and I am applauded.
