WHAT IS IT ABOUT? This book is about 18-years old Amanda who is a trans girl. The book focuses on Amanda's present life in which she moves to her dad - whom she hasn't seen in a long time - and starts to go to a new school there. Amanda wants to start over in this new town where nobody knows about her being transsexual. It doesn't take her long to make new friends and get attention from some boys but her "secret" past is always on her mind.
