Openly Straight (Openly Straight, #1)

The award-winning novel about being out, being proud, and being ready for something else . . . now in paperback.

Rafe is a normal teenager from Boulder, Colorado. He plays soccer. He’s won skiing prizes. He likes to write.

And, oh yeah, he’s gay. He’s been out since 8th grade, and he isn’t teased, and he goes to other high schools and talks about tolerance and stuff. And whi

Rafe is a normal teenager from Boulder, Colorado. He plays soccer. He’s won skiing prizes. He likes to write.

And, oh yeah, he’s gay. He’s been out since 8th grade, and he isn’t teased, and he goes to other high schools and talks about tolerance and stuff. And while that’s important, all Rafe really wants is to just be a regular guy. Not that GAY guy. To have it be a part of who he is, but not the headline, every single time.

So when he transfers to an all-boys’ boarding school in New England, he decides to keep his sexuality a secret — not so much going back in the closet as starting over with a clean slate. But then he sees a classmate break down. He meets a teacher who challenges him to write his story. And most of all, he falls in love with Ben . . . who doesn’t even know that love is possible.

This witty, smart, coming-out-again story will appeal to gay and straight kids alike as they watch Rafe navigate feeling different, fitting in, and what it means to be himself.

    Lola  Reviewer


    Openly Straight is the story of Rafe, a teenager who is terribly tired of being labelled as the ‘‘gay guy’’ in his city, Boulder. Ergo, he decides to go to an all-boy boarding school and hide this part of himself. Not lie about it, just never mention it.

    Except, he does lie. He invents himself a girlfriend, so he can avoid further inquisition from his jock group of friends on the matter of the heart. Rafe is pretty keen on not letting the truth about his sexual orientation slip out, especially no

    Except, he does lie. He invents himself a girlfriend, so he can avoid further inquisition from his jock group of friends on the matter of the heart. Rafe is pretty keen on not letting the truth about his sexual orientation slip out, especially now that he’s made an extraordinary new masculine friend and has gotten closer to him than to anyone he’s ever met.

    Watching Rafe struggle and oppressing all his feelings for Ben seriously made my heart ache. I understood his reasons behind the act of not telling the truth, but it’s universally known that the truth always comes out, one way or the other, and I dreaded that moment. It is always only a matter of time.

    Even though Rafe seems fully okay with his sexual orientation for the most part of the story, the more it advances and we dig deep into his personality, the more we realize that he needs help accepting the whole ‘‘label’’ thing and not focusing all of his thoughts on that. At the end of the day, what other people see matters less than what we do.

    I wouldn’t exactly recommend this for those looking for a transcendent LGBT romance story, because the whole lying thing does have a negative effect on the atmosphere. But it’s a wonderful novel about acceptance and friendship.

    4.5/5 Stars

    This was a (nearly) perfect read. I absolutely enjoyed reading Openly Straight . On one hand because I didn’t have any expectations towards it and on the other hand because it exceeded them anway.

    I was suprised to like this book so much. The LGBT+ book market is still growing and growing. It’s hard to find a book in this category that is able to live up to the readers expectations or to say, is outstanding. This one, along with Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe, is exceptional.

    One of the aspects that makes Openly Straight a great novel is the relatable main character. Rafe is not a stereotype. He lies, breaks his own promises, messes up. He is happy to belong with people, struggling to stand up to his friends when it comes to his own beliefs and he fears that he might not be accepted anymore if he does so. He, for a fictional character, is very human and relatable.

    Something else that made this novel such an enjoyable read was the many emotions it brought up. It made me smile, giggle, laugh out loud. It made me read that line again and laugh even harder. It made me want to hug someone (Rafe/Ben!/the book/my pillow). It made me happy.

    The only thing that let me down was (view spoiler)

    There will be a sequel from Ben’s point of view which could not make me happier, since he’s my favourite character. This also means, that there’s the possibility of a future for Ben and Rafe. And I really want it to happen.

    I am now officially a fan of Bill Konigsberg!

    Rafe has already “come out” as being gay. His parents are very accepting, his friends do, and he even does not face bullying because of it.
    He just feels like he never truly gets to be a “normal” guy because everyone always sees him as “gay”.
    So when he gets to go to boarding school he keeps his sexuality a secret. Not that he is ashamed. He just is tired of the labels.
    “Back in Boulder, when people saw me, they saw the GAY kid. It was like, every second of my life, I had to be aware of the fact t

    Once he begins the school he realizes that labels happen to everyone after he joins the soccer team. Jock, goth, nerds, they all have labels attached to them.

    This book doesn’t do the usual teenage angsty stuff, or at least for me it didn’t. Rafe actually has a tad bit of sense in his head. Even if he does go the liar path.
    I kept expecting the book to try and pull at my heartstrings.

    It did, just not in the normal young adult book way. The main character Rafe knows that he is wrong in lying about himself, but he does it in a thoughtful way that makes you think throughout the whole book.
    Interspersed throughout the book you have journal pages from Rafe that his teacher (who knows his secret) is grading. You see Rafe grow and change his mind on things that happen.
    I think or rather hope that one day labeling people will stop. No one will stop and stare at two gay guys walking down the hall. That no one will think twice about that black guy over in men’s clothing.

    “My mom has a saying when we ski,” I said. “She always says, ‘Lean forward, and head on down the mountain.’ I love that. It’s true, right? About life?”
    “It means to be unafraid. Lean into the challenges, don’t lean back. I don’t always do it, but I love it.”
