Recommended to Rebecca by: angie

This book was as realistic as an after school special. The author knows her stuff about trans issues, but doesn't seem to know much about high school and queer kids. It was a sweet story, though, and she really did nail the gender stuff. With the complexity and quality of young adult literature these days, I just wish the story didn't read like a PFLAG brochure ("It's OK to transition! You will find allies! Just be yourself!").
