Boys Don't Cry by Malorie Blackman
Dante is a 17 year old black student in the UK, and he's waiting for the postman who's bringing Dante's A level results. University, a career as a journalist – a glittering future lies ahead.
But when the doorbell rings it’s Dante's old girlfriend; and she’s carrying a baby. She tells Dante the baby is his... and then leaves!
Suddenly Dante's future looks very different.
What's queer about this book? Dante's younger brother is out and gay (and much better with the baby than his brother.)
