Ms. Harvey would require only one 101 level class in human sexuality to undermine her entire premise for the book. It has all been said before about her book, her logic, her obsession. When one bases an entire work on a lie, you cannot expect very much. Homosexuality is a normal variation of human sexuality. This has been settled for over 40 years.
The book format itself:
The cover — no gay boy would be caught dead in those sneakers, but a few lesbians might like them — know your target audience
The typesetting made each chapter an eye test, the sections spacings would be unacceptable in a high school homework assignment
Poorly written and constructed — lots of “oh, i’ll tell you that later”s
Could have been reduced to about a dozen pages
