Read & Download Saving Alex ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Alex Cooper ☆ 9 Free download Summary Saving Alex When Alex Cooper was fifteen years old life was pretty ordinary in her sleepy suburban town and nice Mormon family At church and at home Alex was taught that God had a plan for everyone But something was gnawing at her that made her feel different These feelings exploded when she met Yvette a girl who made Alex feel alive in a new way and with whom Alex would uickly fall in loveAlex knew she was holding a secret that could shatter her family her church community and her life Yet when this secret couldn’t be hidden any longer she told her parents that she was gay. The subtitle says it all This is a memoir about Alex Cooper s problems being a lesbian teen in a Mormon family Her parents loved her and she loved them in return She admits in the book that she was uite a handful as a teen she drank smoked pot and went on trips with friends without her parents permission But the one transgression they could not forgive was her declaration that she liked girls They believed that being gay was a choice a bad choice that would keep her out of paradise So they found a place in Utah to send her to cure her by making her choose to be straight and to stop choosing to be gay This book tells her story of her life at the place an unlicensed couple acting as if they ran a conversion therapy and rehabilitation center and beyond The story recounts her suffering at the hands of the family who took her in and her life after her escape Suffice it to say that through a series of lucky happenstances and a lot of hard work by many people of good will this story has a happy ending for Alex and eventually for her parents While the story is compelling the reader wants to know what happens next the writing is pedestrian Still I was glad to have read this book and recommend it to others interested in protecting LBGT kids who wish to be who they are Alex was only fifteen when her saga began and she is only twenty one now as I write this review That could account for the compelling nature of the read And I am sure that in the years ahead Alex may come to have an even richer understanding of what she went through There are some notes at the end of the book to guide those who wish to do to help such teens and also those who feel in need of such help35
