Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Kiss Your Elbow by Susan Stocker

Kiss Your Elbow: An Embellished Memoire about Growing Up Gay in the 50's and 60's

"This was a fantastic memoir. It was funny, poignant and relatable. I didn't want to stop reading it and I honestly am not a fan of Memoirs! Can't wait for book number two to continue the story!"

"Loved this story from start to finish. Great storytelling style. Felt like I was literally along for the ride. Had me smiling and relating. Great character portrayals. "


Growing up in the 50's and 60's was a hip, groovy, and a laid-back kind of a life for most young teenage girls. Except if you were taller than most adults, completely out of it because your mother had total control of your life, and discovered you were different than all your friends, it was more like a complete social wipeout.
Susan was tall, athletic, and popular in elementary school and it never occurred to her life would change drastically when she entered junior high school. But by the first weekend in the new school year it was clear her easy-going life had changed forever.
