A bit of a late mention here, but here nonetheless. The latest in a nice line of accolades for Street Dreams is its inclusion of the 2013 Rainbow List. This is a list of books that are considered good reading for GLBTQ youth complied by a group within the American Library Association.
I’m stoked! Considering that one of the main drives for me wanting to write Street Dreams was to give youth what I didn’t have growing up gay; a book that told me that being gay, Maori and loving hip hop was ok, among many other things. Something I could relate to in the medium I knew best.
