Description

When those girls pull over next to the overheating Amanda and essentially bundle her into their car, the cynical reader is expecting something Mean Girls-esque to go down. Amanda is surrounded by accepting people, despite being in small town Tennessee, where everyone is a Baptist and many of them have homophobic bumper stickers. I shakily handed her my menu and said, “I would like a waffle and Diet Coke please, ma’am, thank you.

The narrative is also very explicit about undermining stereotypes and assumptions about gender and sexuality, such as “you don’t have to be a boy to like girls,” and a girl being masculine doesn’t necessarily mean she’s attracted to girls. There was one part where a character proposes a theory that homophobes are just closeted gay people hating on other gay people out of insecurity and inability to accept their own secret gayness. It's easy to act like my past never happened, but it feels like I've put up this wall around my heart that stops me from being really close with him.I thought Amanda, Chloe, Anna, and Layla made a really great girl gang, and I liked how supportive they were.

This book too had an open ending; Amanda had tied the loose ends, but her relationship with Grant was confusing and left open.My local library has a copy and I’ve tried reading it a few times (I love trans fiction) but every time I do I feel a deep sadness in me. We turned into the sun so his eyes were hidden again, his jaw set in a way I didn’t know how to read.

If you have an article you like, or a worry to talk about, or you just want to vent a bit about trans life, then we're here!I’m not saying it needs to be 500 pages—I don’t necessarily think it needs to be longer at all, yet as it is, sometimes the book feels more like a collection of Important Scenes rather than a full, rounded-out story. Because as romantic and sexy as one person pushing their lips against another person without warning might seem in movies, obtaining enthusiastic consent is even sexier. An older man with leathery skin and a sweat-stained work shirt scanned me from my feet to my neck without making eye contact.
