I can't really uite put my finger on the why or how but I felt like Konigsberg was channeling some of the offbeat vibe that the other two authors have been known to use in their own style of writingBefore you groan and say that all three authors are male or have tackled writing about similar subjects just hear me out Or read me out since you can't actually hear me saying anything Openly Straight just has this weirdly wonderful thing going on It's funny candid and uncomfortable at times Have we not seen this method of madness with Green or Levithan before? Yes? Okay so maybe I'm not completely off baseGranted Openly Straight stands on its own because the story is not one you see every day I might have s
