A trans teen walks the fine line between doing whatever it takes for his acting dream and staying true to himself in this moving, thought-provoking YA novel from the acclaimed author of Stay Gold. Aspiring actor August Greene just landed a coveted spot at the prestigious School of Performing Arts in New York. Theres only one problem: His conservative parents wont accept that hes transgender. And to stay with his aunt in the city, August must promise them he wont transition. August is convinced he can play the part his parents want while acting cool and confident in the company of his talented new friends. But who is August when the lights go down? And where will he turn when the roles start hitting a little too close to home?

A former student of mine came by to visit and said, “I just finished a book that you have to read!” That doesn‘t happen everyday, so of course I got it. My former student is transgender and so is the protagonist. Awesome and realistic story. I work with several lgbtq+ kids and it always helps to read of experiences others have had. Awesome story, that will make others realize that they are wonderful as they are!

Hot off the Libby presses, this #graphicnovel about a trans teen pursuing his acting dream.

On my hook: a cardigan for my son, in his favourite colour.
