St. Francis of Millbrook

By (author): Sky Gilbert

Being a teenager is hard, especially if you’re questioning your sexuality and growing up in rural Ontrio in the mid ’90s. Add to that a temperamental, homophobia father and a tenacious love for Madonna, and it’s almost unbearable. Despite it all, Luke loes working on the family farm, and at least he has the support of a group of local outsiders who invite him into their circle.
