Tell the Wolves I'm Home

Tell the Wolves I'm Home - I have a serious thing for the 80s right now, and this book relies on the misunderstandings and fear of the early 80s AIDS crisis as the sticking point for each relationship. A startingly honest narrator, June learns all kinds of lessons about love, family and relationships through the smoky lens of what no one understood about AIDS when it was new. And more than that, this was charming, heartbreaking, uplifting and brutally real.
