Review of "Crying Out Loud"
A book by C.P. Whitaker
Reviewed by Duane Simolke

In the prologue of this delightful novel, C.P. Whitaker uses a funny situation with snappy dialogue to introduce us to the offbeat character of Alex, who then takes over as narrator. Alex's romantic interest, Marissa, also narrates parts of the novel. Both narrators are fascinating people with a wealth of experiences and many keen observations. Letting the two main characters split the storytelling allows the readers to see every side of those characters, without giving away the novel's surprise twists too soon. 

Whitaker mixes humor with compassion and a variety of social issues. Whether trapped in an elevator, confronting bigoted neighbors, or maneuvering through a budding relationship, Whitaker's characters shine with realism and charm. I won't give away the novel's surprising gay angle, but it's a delightful surprise!
