I’m not flaunting anything. I’m just existing. This is me. I can’t hide myself.
Felix Love is an art student at an incredibly prestigious high school.
He’s been through a lot in the past few years – from transitioning to losing his mom (she’s not dead…just gone. Moved on.) And he’s ready for the next step – college. And to get there, he needs to win a scholarship.
But just as things amp up for him…the unthinkable happened.
Someone found old pictures of Felix (pretransition) and posted it with his deadname as a gallery of sorts.
He’s horrified and heartbroken and above all, ready for revenge.
After narrowing down the pool of subjects, he quickly finds who he thinks is the culprit. But the longer he spends trying to figure out the best way to extract revenge…the more he begins to doubt his plan, and himself.
This was a wonderful book. Really, truly.
I loved watching Felix’s character grow and change throughout the pages.
I adored the love shown in this story…and while my favorite pairing never happened, I still adored the ones that did.
The way the author unabashedly covers all the hard-hitting topics was admirable.
Just cause they’re teens, doesn’t mean that they don’t have to deal with life’s issues and I love the way the author portrayed Felix tackling those head-on.
All in all, this was an absolutely fabulous book. Definitely recommend it.
