Andrea’s Recent Updates

Andrea liked an answer about If I Was Your Girl:
If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo
As others have mentioned, this book was written by a trans woman. If you're curious about reading more literature by trans women while you're waiting for IF I WAS YOUR GIRL to come out, I highly recommend A SAFE GIRL TO LOVE by Casey Plett and NEV... See Shira’s answer.

More of Andrea's books…
“When women cover songs by men, they don’t swap the pronouns. Is this a.) a lack of anxiety about convention, b.) a biologically essential fluidity native to humans with vaginas and/or two X chromosomes, c.) rampant queerness among women singers, or d.) the universal male default?”
Andrea Lawlor, Paul Takes the Form of a Mortal Girl

“Paul liked to pick out the secretly cool people, people too cool to flash their coolness. The cool people were not always or even usually the same as the shiny people. Often someone shiny was too conventionally good-looking to be cool but they were still compelling, in terms of sheer wattage. Paul knew he wasn't good-looking enough to be shiny, but he could be cool in certain contexts. Cool was relational and conceptual; cool took work, cool was a meritocracy which, with all its flaws, he still preferred to the aristocracy of genetics.”
Andrea Lawlor, Paul Takes the Form of a Mortal Girl
