Book cover for Other Words for Home
My feet sink into the sand and I realize I do not want things to change. I want things to go back to the way they were, which I guess is another sort of changing, but it is not what Issa is talking about.

“You think you’ve got it hard?” Sol says. “Try giving a free grammar lesson every time you tell people your pronouns and they don’t believe in singular they. Try convincing your literature professor tía that Latinx is a real word. At least people know what a fucking boy is.” They pound their fist on my dashboard. Grin. Do it again. “Fuck!”

“I kept telling myself Sol was weak, nerdy, uncool to let their gender define them, limit them in what they can and can’t do. But both of us were just showing Cresswell the side of us we thought would help our queer asses best survive this mess. I’ve underestimated how much we’re alike when they really let go. I’ve never connected to a friend like this, aside from Lukas, because they’re the first friend I’ve ever made as myself.”

“I never asked for this to be my life!” I shout. “I don’t want to teach him, I want him to know. I want him and everyone else to know who I am right away, to never get my gender wrong—god!”

“The maze of students closes tight around me—I can’t see over all the assholes around me who have the nerve to be tall.”
