Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Optics can make or break an election. Everything Mark knows about politics, he learned from his father, the Congressman who still pretends he has a daughter and not a son. Mark has promised to keep his past hidden and pretend to be the cis guy everyone assumes he is. But when he sees a manipulatively charming candidate for student body president inflame dangerous rhetoric, Mark risks his low profile to become a political challenger. The problem? No one really knows Mark. He didn't grow up in this town, and his few friends are all nerds. Still, thanks to Scandal and The West Wing, they know where to start: from campaign stops to voter polling to a fashion makeover. Soon Mark feels emboldened to engage with voters--and even start a new romance. But with an investigative journalist digging into his past, a father trying to silence him, and the bully frontrunner standing in his way, Mark will have to decide which matters most: perception or truth, when both are just as dangerous.

    *Starred Review* Seventeen-year-old Mark has made a deal with the devil, aka his dad: he will keep his identity as a pansexual transgender male a secret if his father, a U.S. Congressman who is running for Governor of California, won't disown him. But when a serious injustice is visited on his friend Benji, a self-styled "high femme fag," Mark—to his father's horror—decides to run for Student Body President of Utopia High School to improve things there. Mark finds support in his spectrum of friends, all of whom are queer and share an interest in politics and TV's The West Wing. They are also preternaturally intelligent, often sounding as if they have doctorates in queer theory and political science. But, then, this is that rarity: a genuine novel of ideas that cuts its readers no slack. And good for it! It's also a romance between Mark and his friend Ralph, but their relationship is built on a lie told by Mark that once discovered becomes a dealbreaker for Ralph. Will Mark win the election? Will he win back Ralph? Refreshingly original, this debut by trans author Sanchez is a thoroughgoing delight that's not to be missed. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
