MidWest Book Review
“Operation Marriage” is a touching, timely story about two best friends, a boy and girl named Zach and Alex, who believe they can’t continue their friendship because “her parents aren’t married.” The story is told from the viewpoints of Alex and Nikki, the two children of Mama Kathy and Mama Lee, a lesbian couple who have had a commitment ceremony but have not been legally allowed to become married. When California’s Proposition 8 is passed, this changes and Alex and Nikki’s parents obtain the legal right to marry in the state of California. The reactions of both children and adults to this story displays the human importance of this legislation and this current issue. “Operation Marriage” is a real story with real people living real lives and teaching real lessons in human compassion and enlightenment.
