I mentioned this book in a post I wrote last week on Trans and Gender Non-Conforming characters in young adult literature. As it happens, I, the friend I wrote that post for, and two graduate students in the counseling psychology program at my university submitted a proposal to a conference to talk about this novel and how teachers and school counselors can work together to create a safer environment for all students.

#bookaday Symptoms of Being Human by Jeff Garvin This was the first book I've come across with a gender fluid main character. I appreciated that we never learn Riley's birth sex (which may irritate some readers). I loved how real Riley was - while people are trying to categorize Riley, Riley does the same to others, then processes it. There's more to be said than this. Let's discuss. #bookstagram #stickynotereviews #snrtbs
