2017 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Transitions David Connor

1) Just from reading the blurb, I figured I'd be in over my head in no time. And I wasn't wrong. There are straights, gays, and bisexuals here, a glorious rainbow of orientations and polyamory. And yet they all somehow seem to gel. Fascinating. The writing flows well, the pace could be tighter, the dialogue is realistic if not altogether necessary all the time, and the characters feel real with their emotional and sexual baggage, tying them all together. There are also some important, current, heavy issues dealt here, like sexual and gender confusion, bisexuality, teen suicide, prejudice and discrimination, etc. Despite that, though, sometimes it felt like people had already been through the same discussion, so it got a little repetitive. The polyamorous relationship wasn't turned into a spectacle or lurid erotica. These were real people trying to manage their feelings for each other. All in all, an interesting twist on the old romance theme.
