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.

Let's discuss. #bookstagram #stickynotereviews
