I wanted to like this book more than I did. A young man dealing with grief turns to alcohol and accidentally overdoses. His mom can't cope with her own grief plus his developing problems, so she sends him away to an uncle's house. While there, he decides to shed his old persona and develop a new one, one in which he wears dresses. There's nothing about this that doesn't sound appealing to read about, and yet, there was something lacking. I can't put my finger on it. Perhaps it's me. Hopefully this book will resonate with young people who are trying out new roles and identities. If it does, then it doesn't matter what I think.
