For me personally, I would give this a 3.5, however, I feel that it deserves a 4 star for it's intended audience. I do enjoy middle grade, however this felt aimed at kids a little younger. It is a great story for someone to read if they are feeling different from their peers and they haven't figured out quite why. It is very educational about all kinds of identities, and I think this book will be very helpful to some kids out there. It cover just about anything you can think of from gay, straight, trans, asexual, aromantic, pan, demi, and more. ( )

Middle school is an incredibly difficult time. Stories like these are definitely needed. Those in elementary and middle school are in the process of understanding their identities. Seeing a diverse set of characters facing the challenges of living true to themselves is important for all young people - regardless of how they identify. That said, this particular book left me underwhelmed. It seemed a little too much instruction-manual-for-LGBTQ-youth and not enough story of a boy discovering how he fits in the world. Based on the reviews, I may read George to see what Rick might have been. ( )

This novel is a standalone companion to Gino’s Other book entitled George. In the book, 11-year-old Rick is coming into his identity while navigating shifting relationships and learning about allyship. Now that he’s starting middle school, it seems that everyone expects Rick to “turn into some sort of hormonal beast,” but he worries that he’s does not have that attraction to males nor females, As discovery he attends Rainbow Spectrum, “an after-school club for LGBTQIAP+ rights.
Rick hides his feelings from his best friend Jeff, a homophobic bully. As Rick begins to find words that describe his orientation—asexual, aromantic—he bonds with his fellow club members and is forced to consider his friendship with Jeff. Jeff is now bullying the Rainbow Spectrum group. Unlike Jeff, Rick is accepted by his club peers, which lead to conversations with family about his identity. I really appreciated the openmindedness of Rick’s whole family. This seems to be rarely the case.
I adored Rick’s deep relationship with his Grandpa Ray, who loves cosplay, and how their time together provides Rick the safe space to be himself. At first the two bond over a science fiction program, then realize their connection spans beyond the screen, highlighting the power of authenticity and acceptance. Through the Rainbow Spectrum, readers are introduced to a wide range of identities and pronouns. Ages 8–12.

The book is no where nearly as good as George. It’s almost like a documentary of terminology with the cast of characters to identify.

I did find the term QUILTBAG+ interesting. Be sure to read the author’s note concerning this term. ( )

Middle-school is such an important time, when a person is trying to figure out who they are. Add too, the incredible importance that peers play in a person's life. Rick by Alex Gino is especially valuable because, not only does it address the issues of gender and sexuality, but it also illustrates a protagonist having to cope with having a toxic "best friend." Not all relationships are healthy, but it isn't always easy to identify. Readers' note: This book takes place after the story in Gino's earlier novel, George, but I feel it can be read on its own.
