Staff Reviews


We need more books like this one. This is actually a book about a trans girl written by a trans woman. More often than not, these types of stories are written by an outside source, but this book is written with an understanding that is hard to grasp if you’re not a part of the trans community. I loved this book for its honesty, humor, and downright realistic portrayal of what it’s like to be unapologetically who you are. At times, this book resorts to tropes and goes back to cliché, but I was willing to look past all of that because of we just don’t see a lot of books about trans folk that are written by trans folk. The dedication and the author’s notes are particularly powerful.

Description


The award-winning, big-hearted novel about being seen for who you really are, and a love story you can't help but root for

Amanda Hardy is the new girl in school. Like anyone else, all she wants is to make friends and fit in. But Amanda is keeping a secret, and she's determined not to get too close to anyone.

But when she meets sweet, easygoing Grant, Amanda can't help but start to let him into her life. As they spend more time together, she realizes just how much she is losing by guarding her heart. She finds herself yearning to share with Grant everything about herself, including her past. But Amanda's terrified that once she tells him the truth, he won't be able to see past it.

Because the secret that Amanda's been keeping? It's that at her old school, she used to be Andrew. Will the truth cost Amanda her new life, and her new love?
