Monoceros is an emotionally evocative book about a school community reacting to the suicide of a bullied gay teenager. It's a realistic look at the high school environment and the relationships within it. The book switches point of view between the dead boy, the uptight principal, the guidance counselor who couldn't talk about being gay, the dead boy's mother, and Faraday, a teenage girl who wonders if she could have saved the dead boy if she had just tried a little harder to be his friend. There is an element of the fantastic, which gives the book a feeling of hope and whimsy.

I laughed and cried, sometimes at the same time. I think this is a must read for anyone who has, or has been, a teenager.
