Product description

Review

"The novel grapples with the impact of society’s overly simplistic messages. An optimistic journey of self-acceptance." — Kirkus Reviews

"Machias’s debut handles both realistic emotional journeys with compassion, while offering a nuanced portrayal of the benefits and limitations of labels. A celebration of allyship and fluidity that’s a joy to read." — Publishers Weekly

"A sweetly affirming story at its core. A must for middle schools and high schools, this story is an inspiring celebration of living authentically." — School Library Journal (starred review)

“Layered characters, written with compassion and courage. Ultimately a story about claiming your own identity in the face of opposition.” — Booklist
