Summary

Last week I cut my hair, bought some boys' clothes and shoes, wrapped alarge ACE bandage around my chest to flatten my fortunately-not-largebreasts, and began looking for a new name.Angela Katz-McNair has never felt quite right as a girl. Her whole lifeis leading up to the day she decides to become Grady, a guy. While comingout as transgendered feels right to Grady, he isn't prepared for thereaction he gets from everyone else. His mother is upset, his youngersister is mortified, and his best friend, Eve, won't acknowledge him inpublic. Why can't people just let Grady be himself?Grady's life is miserable until he finds friends in some unexpected places-- like the school geek, Sebastian, who explains that there is precedentin the natural world (parrotfish change gender when they need to, and thenewly male fish are the alpha males), and Kita, a senior who might just beGrady's first love.From acclaimed writer Ellen Wittlinger, this is the groundbreaking story ofone teen's search for self and his struggle for acceptance.
