When Adam Freedman a skinny, awkward,
inexperienced teenager from Piedmont, California goes to stay with his older
sister Casey in New York City, he is hopeful that his life is about to change.
And it sure does. It is the summer of 2006. Gay marriage and transgender rights
are in the air, and Casey has thrust herself into a wild lesbian subculture.
Soon Adam is tagging along to underground clubs, where there are hot older women
everywhere he turns. It takes some time for him to realize that many in this new
crowd assume he is transa boy who was born a girl. Why else would this
baby-faced guy always be around? Then Adam meets Gillian, the girl of his dreams
but she couldnt possibly be interested in him. Unless passing as a trans guy
might actually work in his favor . . . Ariel Schrags scathingly funny and poignant debut novel puts a
fresh spin on questions of love, attraction, self-definition, and what it takes
to be at home in your own skin.
