When Dan and his boyfriend are finally presented with an infant badly in need of parenting, they find themselves caught up in a drama that extends well beyond the confines of their immediate world. A story about confronting homophobia, falling in love, getting older, and getting a little bit smarter, The Kid is a book about the very human desire to have a family.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

The Kid is a wonderful, charming account of real ‘family values’ that proves love knows no limits.” Amazon.com, editorial review
“[Savage’s] forthrightness is brave and daring in the face of social opposition to gay parenting.” Publishers Weekly
“This book is such a good read that even those who have thought a lot about gay parenting will find their horizons expanded.” Library Journal
“Savage is honest and informed. Many readers, including gays who believe that adoption is prohibited to them, will welcome Savage’s book like a visit from a generous and irreverent stork.” Booklist
“A book of humor and heart and a vision of life lived fully, Savage paints a picture of an ideal home for his and his boyfriend’s child in its blemished humanity and right-on queerness; it’s a book that can’t be put down for the same reasons.” Kirkus Reviews
