Best known as the first teen novel to address homosexuality, I'll Get There. It Better Be Worth the Trip . is also renowned for its brilliant, timeless storytelling. This anniversary edition features thoughtful essays from Brent Hartinger ( Geography Club ), Martin Wilson ( What They Always Tell Us ), and others who reflect on the novel and its distinctive place in history. Also included is a foreword by Stacey Donovan, the late author's niece.Set in 1969, Donovan's seminal tale centers on Davy Ross, a lonely thirteen-year-old boy. When his grandmother dies, Davy must move to Manhattan to live with his estranged mother. Between alcohol-infused lectures about her self-sacrifice and awkward visits with his distant father, Davy's only comfort is his beloved dachshund Fred. Things look up when he and a boy from school become friends. But when their relationship takes an unexpected physical turn, Davy struggles to understand what happened and what it might mean.
