I really appreciated that this story about a transgendered high school student was so accessible and un-disturbing. Because kids deserve a book about this that won't make them cry! However, I found the message of the book to be a bit heavy-handed and (like with Wittlinger's Hard Love) the voice of the main character kind of "square," for lack of a better word. She clearly gets teenagers' feelings, just not the way they talk? Overall, worth a read.
