Russel Middlebrook is convinced he's the only gay kid at Goodkind High School. Then his online gay chat buddy turns out to be none other than Kevin, the popular but closeted star of the school's baseball team. Soon Russel meets other gay students, too. There's his best friend Min, who reveals that she is bisexual, and her soccer–playing girlfriend Terese. Then there's Terese's politically active friend, Ike. But how can kids this diverse get together without drawing attention to themselves? "We just choose a club that's so boring, nobody in their right mind would ever in a million years join it. We could call it Geography Club!" Brent Hartinger's debut novel, what became first of a series about Russel Middlebrook, is a fast–paced, funny, and trenchant portrait of contemporary teenagers who may not learn any actual geography in their latest club, but who learn plenty about the treacherous social terrain of high school and the even more dangerous landscape of the human heart.

One of my goals for this year was to branch out into more contemporary fiction a bit. Geography Club by Brent Hartinger is an LGBT young adult book that seemed just perfect for my foray into realistic fiction :D. There is also a movie coming out sometime this year, and Brent Hartinger was awesome to...
Volevo leggere questo libro da quando ho scoperto la casa editrice Playground, che aveva pubblicato la bellissima trilogia di Alex Sanchez, "Rainbow boys" (per cui ho un debole *_*).Ho sempre rimandato la lettura fino a che qualche giorno fa Netgalley non mi ha avvisato dell'uscita del QUARTO volume...
