Geography Club (Russel Middlebrook, #1) Read Online Free - Russel Middlebrook is convinced he's the only gay kid at Goodkind High School.
Then his online gay chat buddy turns out to be none other than Kevin, the popular but closeted star of the school's baseball team. Soon Russel meets other gay students, too. There's his best friend Min, who reveals that she is bisexual, and her soccer-playing girlfriend Terese. Then there's Terese's politically active friend, Ike.
But how can kids this diverse get together without drawing attention to themselves?
"We just choose a club that's so boring, nobody in their right mind would ever in a million years join it. We could call it Geography Club!"
Brent Hartinger's debut novel is a fast-paced, funny, and trenchant portrait of contemporary teenagers who may not learn any actual geography in their latest club, but who learn plenty about the treacherous social terrain of high school and the even more dangerous landscape of the human heart.

The thing about Schiphol is that it's almost too easy to navigate. You get off your plane, and your connecting flight is about six steps away. I had a four-hour layover when I arrived there about two weeks ago, en route for Glasgow, and I made an uncomfortable beeline for gate D6, having stumbled...

It is my second read of this book. I cried harder the second time.
We all lived in a world where being different is bad, ridiculed and not welcome. I think it is a bit ironic that people keep telling us to be different, to think different. But here we are getting shit for being different. And tha...

Some reviews accuse this book of being preachy, and although I agree in part I think "Geography Club" is one of the best stories in the YA GLBT genre - the kids swear, do horrible things, aren't perfect, and think about sex! Honestly, some books make them so neutered it's hard to take them seriou...

“Even the ugliest place in the world can be wonderful if you’re there with good friends—just like the most fabulous destination on earth is pretty boring when you’re all alone.”
This was an okay read. I've been wanting to read this for a long time but I've tried to keep my expectations low. I've r...

I'm glad that I've chosen an audio edition.
I don't really know, how an author makes a decision, who will narrate his/her book, but if Brent Hartinger HAD to make this decision by himself - he made the right one.
My first Josh Hurley as a narrator, and he is a perfect choice for this swe...

5 STARS!! I don’t read a lot of Young Adult, but something about the description and the book cover intrigued me. It reminded me of some of the TV shows I used to watch in my younger years... Freaks and Geeks, My So Called Life, etc. And I was not disappointed, I love love loved this book! Told e...

La típica historia de instituto americano con sus dramas de popularidad mezclado con personajes que no se animan a salir del clóset. No es la gran genialidad ni aporta nada nuevo pero vaya que sirve para entretener bastante y drenar lecturas pesadas.

Nothing spectacular or groundbreaking here. It's filled with two-dimensional characters and very special lessons. But the MC isn't an asshole and it has a decent ending. It's better than most YA, which isn't saying much.
I'd recommend this for middle school students, but with all the talk about w...

Esse livro tem quase todos os clichês de high school e isso não me impediu de amar a história.
É um leitura super rápida (o audiobook tem umas 6hrs), e muito divertida! O plot tem um climinha gostoso de sessão da tarde, a narrativa é divertida e eu amei os personagens.

YA. Russel Middlebrook is convinced he's the only gay kid at his high school, but while hanging out online in a gay teen chat room, he discovers there's someone else out there, and soon gay people are popping out all over the place, though not actually out. This is a solidly mediocre contestant i...
