Alton, William L.

Flesh and Bone

(4) YA Bill's parents are divorced, and he's now living with his mother at his grandparents' farm in backwater Oregon. At his new high school, Bill finds plenty of opportunities for sexual encounters and drug experimentation, but not the meaningful connections he craves. Bill's story captures a uniquely intimate, raw experience of a bisexual teenager, but the disjointed, snapshot-like narrative is distancing.
