Reviews

Gr 8 Up-Logan Witherspoon is nursing a broken heart after finding out that his girlfriend of three years cheated on him. Sage, the quirky new girl in his biology class-a true novelty in a small town where he has known nearly all his classmates since kindergarten-provides a welcome distraction. Sage is clever and cute and, Logan is stunned to learn, biologically male. The challenges faced by transgender teens are revealed through Sage's experiences and reflected via Logan's "every guy" perspective. His struggles with conflicting emotions about Sage are skillfully explored in Brian Katcher's Stonewall award-winning prose (Delacorte, 2009). Kirby Heyborne brings the first-person narration to life, complete with gentle shifts in voice to denote different speakers and to clearly indicate whether Logan is speaking aloud or as an aside to listeners. The realistic characters speak like real-life teenagers, including occasional cursing. Sexual situations are described with minimal detail, primarily occurring "off-page." A sensitive exploration of a topic underrepresented in YA literature, this candid novel is recommended for high school and public libraries.-Beth Gallego, Los Angeles Public Library, CA (c) Copyright 2012.

Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, September 1, 2009:
"An accessible tone that will resonate with teens."
