James Lecesne könyvei a rukkolán


James Lecesne - Trevor ​(angol)
Trevor ​is an exuberant, sociable, and witty thirteen year old. So how come, when he takes that nerve-wracking turn toward his locker at school, he feels scared and alone? Shunned by his friends, misunderstood by his parents, and harrassed at school for being different, Trevor goes from wondering what color glitter to choose for his Lady Gaga costume at Halloween, to wondering why some feelings "are so intense it makes you just want to lay down and die rather than go on feeling it," and making an attempt on his life. Trevor mixes humor and realism in an urgent look at what it is like to feel alienated from everything around you. And more importantly, what critical ties can step in at the most unlikely moment, to save you from despair, and give you reason to go on living. Trevor is an update of the film version of the story, directed by Peggy Rajski, which won the Academy Award for Best Live Action Short in 1994. The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, and questioning youth. As the recent attention to youth suicides has received increased media attention, and Dan Savage's IT GETS BETTER campaign has gone viral around the world, the public is finally beginning to face hard facts. Thirty-three percent of suicides among teenagers involve LGBTQ youth, one-third of all LGBT kids report having attempted suicide, and nine out of ten report overt harassment at school. Trevor is an effort to make those kids feel loved and supported, so they will find the strength to go on living.

James Lecesne - Trevor
Trevor ​egy vidám, jó humorú, tizenhárom éves fiú, de otthon és az iskolában különcként kezelik. Trevor művész szeretne lenni, mégpedig olyan, aki megváltoztatja a világot. De miért vesz föl csillogó Lady Gaga-jelmezt halloweenkor? Trevor szerint azért, mert jól néz ki, és amúgy is Lady Gaga a példaképe. A többieknek erről teljesen más a véleménye. Egy ideig a szülei és a barátai is megpróbálnak úgy tenni, mintha Trevor egy átlagos srác lenne. Hisz ez volna a legjobb, nem? Könnyebb elfogadni azt, aki olyan, mint te vagy én. Ha valaki nagyon más, akkor mindenki félrenéz, és reménykedik, hogy nem jól látja. De Trevor különleges, tehetséges és más, és ilyen is akar maradni. De meddig úszhat szemben az árral? A Trevor egy fordulatos, amerikai kisregény a kamaszkori útkeresésről, a másságról és az elfogadásról. Elfogadni magunkat és egymást nem a legegyszerűbb, de a legszebb feladat a világon.
