More Advance Praise for Ball Caps and Khakis

NetGalley reviewer Rafie Juraimi writes: As much as I do enjoy that the narrator is Korean, I am very touched by the presence of this book. I really like how mutually close the relationship of Park Man-shik with his family and friends. His character or personality is something I really respect. I was touched by how he cared so much for his sister Jae and protective of her as her older brother. He was also a very encouraging and dependable friend to Jim. Despite his friend's troubled past and circumstances, he continuously gave his support and never stop believing in his friend as he was determined to prove that Jim was not a bad person that everyone thought. His parents was also very supportive and firm of Man-shik despite his sexuality. There was one touching part of the story where his parents asked him about his aspirations and he hoped to major in his studies either in art or music which his parents did not refrain him from chasing his dreams. I feel that the story was overall simply written and it did not really revolve that much on LGBTQ issues but focuses more on family relationships, friendship and trust. A very convincing story which is relevant to our teens.
