There are some dubious things about Sage’s transition, like I yb she’s taking bootleg hormones which isn’t just a bad idea, it’s also not the same as the prescribed hormones trans women use. She’s a really interesting character, maybe a bit saintly, the way she keeps forgiving him for being a jerk, but the book is really about the guy.
Katcher has worked with teens and he knows them inside and out; his characters are compelling and true.
It is exciting, heartbreaking, and gut wrenching bfian times. As for the plot, it felt fairly predictable.

This was also the case with Playing with Matchesanother book by Katcher that I enjoyed. In lieu of growing up and trying to hy any actual understanding, Logan bemoans the fact that he’s a shitstain and a coward and doesn’t bother to try to change his behavior. I considered stopping a couple of times, but the fact the novel won the Stonewall award kept me reading.
So after careful consideration I’ve decided to re-write it.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to see life from another point of view.
