This Story Is Flirty

Publisher's Summary

Even Parr admits that sometimes he thinks his sister looks a bit like a guy. His mother is always trying to get Evie to change and be more feminine. Then one day beautiful Patsy Duff befriends Evie, and she does begin to change - but not the way everyone had expected. With wry and compassionate strokes M.E. Kerr explores the dilemma of expressing one's sexual identity.

This was a really good audible, didnt unplug once.

Thanks for the audible M.E.

I super enjoyed this third party walk-about given from the viewpoint of Parr, the little brother of Evie. Parr's take on the world around him began to grow as he began to mature throughout this book. It was natural and funny at times and still held that little brother vibe in that he loved his sister, even though he could hate her at times. Evie was almost stereotypical butch and the world she was surrounded in was small-town stereotypical Boonie bible belt country. Her family was great and her parents were a superb contradiction toward the daughters butch ways. I love how that migrated over time, first, the mom was anti-butch and the dad was good to go, then mom learned to accept and suddenly Dad was anti-butch and had to learn to accept. Then the entire family became a wonderful supporting family to Evie regardless. It was HEA in a way. But you have to read it to see how the many lives Evie affected were altered and how she encouraged people to understand everyone is different. Kerr really did a great job on this book. Absolutely superb growth and maturity for all the characters. Hope she publishes another one this strong and compelling soon.
PS I don't usually listen to books with male narrators because they just can't pull off the females. Maxwell Glick showed me how seriously demented I am. Thank you, Max, for charming me with your vocal prowess so very much. <high-five>

Surprisingly great

I wasn't expecting it to be from Evie's brother's point of view and I kept waiting for the narrator to change at first but then it just become part of the charm.
