Publisher Description

Angela Katz-McNair has never felt quite right as a girl, but it’s a shock to everyone when she cuts her hair short, buys some men’s clothes, and announces she’d like to be called by a new name, Grady. Grady is happy about his decision to finally be true to himself, despite the practical complications, like which gym locker room to use. And though he didn’t expect his family and friends to be happy about his decision, he also didn’t expect kids at school to be downright nasty about it. But as the victim of some cruel jokes, Grady also finds unexpected allies in this thought-provoking novel that explores struggles any reader can relate to.

Woah!

My mind has been blown! Of course not everyone goes through the exact same struggles as Grady, but there were moments where I couldn't believe I was reading about how Grady felt because I could've sworn it was exactly how I've felt at some point. This is a must read for anyone who is curious about the word transgender, is transgendered, or even for a friend or parent! Most of all, I say everyone needs to read this book to educate themselves! Although it is fiction, I've never read something that held such truth to it! :)

A pretty unrealistic book

I disliked this book and felt like it was very unrealistic because the main character wasn't developed well. This book had scenarios which would never happen in real life and was very cliche. In I am J by Cris Beam, the story was more complex and showed more of the main character's feelings. I recommend this book if you're looking for a story about trans youth.
