Summary, etc.:
"Seventeen-year-old Arin Andrews shares all the hilarious, painful, and poignant details of undergoing gender reassignment as a high school student in this winning teen memoir"-- Provided by publisher.
We've all felt uncomfortable in our own skin at some point. But for Andrews, it wasn't a phase that would pass. He had been born in the body of a girl and there seemed to be no relief in sight. He details the journey that led him to make the life-transforming decision to undergo gender reassignment as a high school junior: the challenges he faced as a girl, the humiliation and anger he felt after getting kicked out of his private school, and all the mental and physical changes he experienced once his transition began.
