My Three Dads by Zane Silva
Publisher: Silver Stream Press (June, 2013)
Reviewer: Mick Mykola Dementiuk
A delightful YA novella, which I read with great pleasure.
In My Three Dads by Zane Silva the main character, Carl, shows us the confusing world he has been abandoned to, foster parent after foster parent and none finding him acceptable, that is until he is taken in by Leonard and James, two gay men, who for the first time show him some kind of human love, understanding and kindness.
That is until his biological father, who had abandoned him at the age of two and hasn’t seen him until he is a grown teenager, shows up and is outraged that some queers will be taking over his son’s life. And the Youth Counselors totally agree with him! What a mess that is, boy oh boy… But the story isn’t only for teens; adults can get a glimpse into themselves, too
Zane Silva writes with disciplined ease and the size of the novella is perfect for a YA’s attention, it easy and comfortable. I recommend this writer highly and give the story a top rating of 10. A must read!
