This book is incredible. It’s the story of Riley, who is gender fluid. Per a therapist’s suggestion, Riley starts a blog about being gender fluid. It attracts a lot of attention, both good and bad.
This is more of a character driven novel than a story with a really intense plot, but that worked for me, as what I was interested in, throughout the story, was Riley.
(view spoiler)[I also like that Riley’s sex was not revealed in this story, because it’s nobody’s business. It also isn’t relevant and wouldn’t change anything about Riley’s story. And yes, I mean sex, not gender. I really hate it when people mix those terms up, especially the media. (hide spoiler)]
It makes me happy that so many great LGBTQ+ YA titles have been released in 2016. Adults should read more YA, because the authors are bold and honest. They tackle topics that people need to understand better. YA novels actually make me feel better about the state of our future, as I can’t help hoping that kids that grow up reading these awesome books are likely to turn out more open-minded and less judgmental than our current adult population.
