Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Genderqueer adolescent Jamie and her gay friend, Levi, comes out to her brother Steve, who encourage them to seek acceptance from friends and family.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 February #2
    Everyone has a secret in high school, Jamie's older brother claims, and she knows it's true, as each of her friends has one, which they gradually reveal—all but Jamie, who refuses to admit that she binds her chest and that she may really be a boy. But is she? In fact, she feels neither male nor female, realizing, finally, that she's genderqueer, a fact that she also keeps secret. But almost reluctantly she decides to drop a clue, announcing that she wants to use the gender neutral pronoun they. Then they come out to their friend Levi, who is gay and immediately supportive. Then it is their brother with whom they share their secret and then their friends. But they remain terrified of their parents' reaction if they tell them the truth. James' novel—in not altogether successful free verse—addresses the complex reality of being genderqueer without being overly didactic, while offering, in Jamie, a sympathetic character who realistically struggles to find their identity and share its reality.
