The Misadventures of the Family Fletcher

family fletcherI was planning on reading this long before I did, but here I found myself, a  year after it was published, reading all about this wonderful family. This is a book about four brothers and their relationship with their dads. The thing I loved about this, though, is that the fact that they’re the children of a gay couple is not at the forefront of this story.

 

The primary plot point of this book was the children themselves, and their growing pains as they evolve as individuals and as a family. It was refreshing to read a book that wasn’t all about the parents here. Yes, at one point Sam (the eldest at age 12) makes a comment about “theater kids” and then has to backtrack a bit, but that’s it! As someone who reads a lot of LGBTQ lit and seeks out good stories, I was so thoroughly pleased with this one. Good on you, Levy!

 

Speaking of… Guess who got a shout-out from the author after her tweet? tweet

Agree? Disagree? Do you have a book featuring two dads that you loved more? I’d love to hear from you!
