Reviews

"Shaun David Hutchinson has been hammering out one brilliant book after another, and Brave Face is his most honest and courageous one yet. This profound memoir is a triumph--a full-throated howl to the moon to remind us why we choose to survive and thrive."

--Brendan Kiely, New York Times bestselling author of Tradition
"Shaun David Hutchinson has long been one of our brightest lights and best storytellers. In Brave Face, he shares all the sh*t he had to survive to get there - and how we can too. Brutal and essential." --Sam J. Miller, award-winning author of The Art of Starving
"As much a book about coming out as it is a book about simply coming to be, Brave Face is the bravest memoir I've read in years. Illuminating, brutally honest, poignant, and sometimes laugh out loud funny, this isn't a book just for queer kids, it's a book for any teen (or adult) who feels left out, rejected, confused, and scared about their place in the world." ----Kathleen Glasgow, New York Times bestselling author of Girl in Pieces
"Fearless and resonant, Hutchinson's memoir explores personal darkness with profound candor and earned wisdom. Courageous, devastating, and beautiful." ----Caleb Roehrig, author of Death Prefers Blondes
"It takes talent to render personal truth with clear-eyed honesty, and deep empathy for the wounded, bewildered selves we've been. It takes greater bravery to share that truth. Hutchinson has talent and bravery in droves and BRAVE FACE is a triumph. This book is a balm and I'm grateful it exists." ----Alex London, bestselling author of Proxyand Black Wings Beating
