I received a copy of this title to read and review for Wicked Reads

3 Stars overall
3-4 Stars for the young adult reader
2 Stars for the adult reader.

Young adult age-range: 13+ due to kissing and profanity. The 'C' word.

With this tough subject matter, a reader is torn between rating the subject matter or the story itself and the way it was written. I have to be honest about my feelings and thoughts, and express my opinion. It's my duty to my followers not to hand out 5 stars just because an autho

"I wouldn’t say this is one to avoid, but I also wouldn’t say it grabbed me, and you won’t really learn anything from it either. It’s okay, but…" - Matt

"I don’t want to one-star this because I don’t think it’s a bad book in and on itself, but it was not a good read for me personally." - Maria

Sadly a 2 star review from me.
When I read the blurb for this book, I thought great this is something different and it's a great topic to shed some light on.
Sadly this book did not hit the mark for me.

Angela/Adam's transformation was far too sudden and made light of. ' I don't like pink and girly things so I am a boy'

I felt Blaine was far too old for his years, at his age.
I just felt it was all a little too unbelievable

Four stars!
This was a lovely story for teens. I really liked how the focus was on the younger end of YA and not closer to NA. Younger teens need more books, especially on the topic of discovering you’re trans and what happens afterwards. This was a really good book and I hope it can reach the teens that need it.
Adam’s backstory is fairly well developed. I would have liked a little more of his emotions from discovering he was no longer Angela to be on page. The “aha”

Caitlin was fortunate growing up to be surrounded by family and teachers that encouraged her love of reading. She has always been a voracious reader and that love of the written word easily morphed into a passion for writing. If she isn't writing, she can usually be found studying as she works toward her counseling degree. She comes from a military family and the men and women of the armed forces ...more
