NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE DIRECTED BY RHYS ERNST AND STARRING NICHOLAS ALEXANDER, BOBBI SALVÖR MENUEZ, LEO SHENG, AND MARGARET QUALLEY   “An insightful, funny, and unexpected love story.”—Aimee Mann   When Adam Freedman — a straight, cis teen from Piedmont, California — goes to stay with his older sister Casey in Brooklyn, he fantasizes about a summer of freedom, new friends, and falling in love. He’s in for a surprise. It’s 2006 and Casey has thrown herself into NYC’s lesbian and trans activist scene—marriage equality marches, L Word-watching parties, BDSM sex clubs, and trans rights protests. Adam tags along, having fun in places he’d never have expected, but he’s surrounded by lesbians, and it seems like the last thing he’ll find is a girlfriend. That is, until he meets Gillian. Adam is soon hopelessly, desperately in love…only there’s just one small problem. Gillian thinks he’s a trans man. Ariel Schrag’s scathingly funny and poignant debut novel puts a fresh spin on questions of love, attraction, self-definition, and what it means to be part of a community.   "[An] audacious coming-of-age novel.”—Miami Herald   "Compulsively readable."—Bookforum   "Hilarious...Schrag's riotous, poignant debut novel will leave you reeling."—SF Weekly

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The book is sincere, dirty (but not in an excessive way), and downright hilarious. Schrag somehow manages to walk the increasingly thin tightrope of being respectful and yet brutally honest about transgender issues…While this book will surely be on the summer reading list for anybody with a family member or dear friend that fits under the LGBT umbrella, it could and should be enjoyable to anybody who picks it up. After all, its core message is universal. Surviving our teenage years is no small task.” The Daily Beast
