Peck, Richard

The Best Man

(1) 4-6 Wanting grownups to emulate, Archer Magill applauds his uncle Paul; that Paul turns out to be gay is not a crisis. Uncle Paul's life and romance don't overwhelm Archer's dramas involving teachers, friends, enemies, and a dying grandfather, all of which roll along with brio and feeling. We're not done needing books like this; comic and matter-of-fact, Peck's latest steps out to lead the way.
