Ages 12 And Up, Grades 7 And Up
The middle grade adaptation of the moving, hopeful, and refreshingly candid memoir by the husband of former Democratic presidential candidate about growing up gay in his small Midwestern town.
Over the past several years, teacher Chasten Glezman Buttigieg has emerged on the national stage, having left his classroom to travel cross-country in support of his husband, former mayor Pete Buttigieg. Through Chasten’s joyful, witty social media posts, the public has gained a behind-the-scenes look at his life with Pete—moments that have resonated deeply with a large audience looking for a touch of humanity in their politics.
In this moving, uplifting memoir, Chasten recounts his journey to finding acceptance and self-love. He recalls his upbringing in a rural, conservative small town in Michigan, where he felt different from his hyper-masculine father and brothers. He tells the story of his coming out and how he’s healed from the painful responses and isolation. And with unflinching honesty, unflappable courage, and great warmth, Chasten Buttigieg relays his experience of growing up in America and embracing his true self, while inspiring young people across the nation to do the same.
