    1. This review can also be found at fortheloveofbooksreviewss Things change for Sheldon on the day that he finds himself undeniably attracted to another guy. While he's definitely attracted to his girlfriend, Jenny, he can't ignore what he's been feeling and struggling with, and he fears that he might be gay. After some research, he discovers the word bisexual, and decides that it fits him much better than either gay or straight.When he decides to come out, things don't exactly go as planned. Inste [...]


    2. Enjoyed this quick read, flows very smoothly and I kept reading to finish because I wanted to know how things turned out. This story is about a young man (17) who is questioning his sexuality, whether he is straight, gay or bisexual's his journey through high school and kids who are cruel and unaccepting. He learns who he is as a person, who accepts him, who doesn't. The people who are truly there for him and love him for who he is inside and not judgemental. It tugs your heart strings and I wan [...]


    3. Great novel written like an autobiography about a young man who has just discovered he is bisexual. This is written as occurring in the 1980s which is about when I was in high school and many of the references really resonated with me. I came away feeling like I knew Sheldon (the main charzcter) and could relate to him. Very well writtenI received this book as part of a good reads giveaway but the opinions expressed are solely my own.


    4. This was a quick read, well written, and covering an interesting topic (a young man's struggle with his bisexuality) I'd definitely recommend this book if the topic interests you.



    5. This book is for much younger readers than myself. It is sort of Degrassi - with the focus on one young man's struggle with coming out as bisexual. It was an accurate portrait of the relationships and struggles that young people face in school and brought me back to that time. I really enjoyed the story. Nonetheless, while I get what the writer was trying to do with the footnotes - time shifting thoughts between then and now and providing other information… honestly, I hated them. They were di [...]


    6. There are a lot of books I read that I give 4 stars for whatever reason, but I honestly feel like they deserve more of a 3.5; Switch deserves a 4.5 or higher. Not a lot goes into my rating system. It's generally based on the writing style, the plot, characters/character development, and lasting emotions. Switch had a really unique writing style (the footnotes), a nice little captivating plot, and the characters were amazingly written. However, I feel as if I won't feel the emotions of this book [...]


    7. Switch by Douglas Davey is a bildungsroman. It explores the struggle of a bisexual young man coming to terms with his feelings and with prejudice from bullies. Being bisexual is confusing for him and his friends, with everyone questioning how he really felt about his girlfriend.The narration is great, and makes it feel like Sheldon is a real person. The footnotes are funny and informative, but I’m not sure teens will enjoy them as much as I do.This is a book that could be helpful to a teen who [...]


    8. A novel about a character coming to terms and discovering what it means to be bisexual. The novel touches on a number of problems that happen to people being open about their sexuailty, especially during the time period when the novel is set, which is appx the 90s.The novel is different from other LGBTQ novels that I have recently read which was quiet refreshing and really the first one that I have found on a bisexual.


    9. I think this book was too short to do justice to the complications of identifying oneself as bisexual. It might be useful for someone whose friend or sibling has just come out as bisexual, but it doesn't strike me as something that would be useful to someone who was wrestling with the matter themselves.I did like the footnotes, though. The narration is good in that the adult narrator gives weight to the authenticity of the adolescent writing.


    10. Switch is a really good coming of age story about a high school boy, and his peers, coming to terms with his sexuality in the 1980s when being anything but straight was highly feared or frowned upon. It's an easy read, really interesting, and a great story about daring to be different.
