When I wrote Surrender Your Sons, I had no idea who it would reach, if anyone. I never would’ve imagined I’d be partnering with Born Perfect, the leading organization fighting conversion therapy. Through this partnership, Connor Major and his friends will be able to provide comfort, solace, and legal protection to their real-life counterparts. It’s more than I ever dreamed of! — Adam Sass, author of Surrender Your Sons
More about Born Perfect:
In June 2014, the National Center for Lesbian Rights launched Born Perfect: The Campaign to End Conversion Therapy. Through the campaign, the group advocates for laws across the country to protect LGBT children and young people, fights in courtrooms to ensure their safety, and raises awareness about the serious harms caused by these practices. NCLR has been working to protect LGBT youth from conversion therapy for more than 20 years, securing legislation protecting youth from these dangerous practices across the country. Today, they are working with legislators and LGBT leaders in dozens of other states to bring similar protections to the rest of the country. They believe that every LGBT child is born perfect and that any young person’s identity as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender should be honored, celebrated, and supported.
More about Surrender Your Sons:
Connor Major’s summer break is turning into a nightmare.
His SAT scores bombed, the old man he delivers meals to died, and when he came out to his religious zealot mother, she had him kidnapped and shipped off to a secluded island. His final destination: Nightlight Ministries, a conversion therapy camp that will be his new home until he “changes.”
But Connor’s troubles are only beginning. At Nightlight, everyone has something to hide from the campers to the “converted” staff and cagey camp director, and it quickly becomes clear that no one is safe. Connor plans to escape and bring the other kidnapped teens with him. But first, he’s exposing the camp’s horrible truths for what they are— and taking this place down.
