One of the best descriptions of bisexuality that exists in YA fiction. It isn't so much about choices, as it is about finding where you fit, where your instincts lead you. While it is billed as a companion to other books, this book stands on its own. It also has a great depiction of what it means to be genderfluid from the perspective of one of the minor characters.
The companion to the award-winning Openly Straight, called “remarkable…deeply satisfying and as honest as its appealing protagonist” (Booklist). Perfect for fans of David Levithan, Andrew Smith, and John Green!
Ben Carver is back to normal. He’s working steadily in his classes at the Natick School. He just got elected captain of the baseball team. He’s even won a full scholarship to college, if he can keep up his grades. All that foolishness with Rafe Goldberg the past semester is in the past.
There’s Hannah, the gorgeous girl from the neighboring school, who attracts him and distracts him. There’s his mother, whose quiet unhappiness Ben is noticing for the first time. School is harder, the pressure higher, the scholarship almost slipping away. And there’s Rafe, funny, kind, dating someone else . . . and maybe the real normal that Ben needs.
