AUTHOR = ALYSSA BRUGMAN
GENRE = GENDER, SEXUAL IDENTITY, FAMILY, GROWING UP
INTEREST LEVEL = YEARS 9 UP
Being a teenager can be hard enough at the best of times. But imagine what it is like if you are not certain of your gender: are you a boy or a girl or somewhere in between? And if you want to be seen as a girl … but your parents accept you only as a boy … life is not going to be easy.
This is dilemma faced by Alex in a book which handles sensitively and credibly a very difficult situation. This is not an issues book … it is from the very first page about a teenager trying to define their identity and trying to be accepted by others.
A moving read.
