Synopsis from Goodreads
The book tells the story of Amanda Hardy, who moves to a small town in Tennessee to live with her father. She wants to make friends and fit in, but Amanda has a secret: she used to be Andrew, and fears that the truth could cost her her new life, and her new love.

My Thoughts
So excited for this book. There is so few books about trans teenagers and I think there needs to be a whole lot more. Trans teenagers need to know & feel that they aren’t alone in the world. I cannot wait to read this book. Plus, I’m so in love with the cover, it’s not even funny. It’s simple, but eye-catching.

Synopsis from Goodreads
Nat’s not an alcoholic. She doesn’t have a problem. Everybody parties, everybody does stupid things, like get in their car when they can barely see. Still, with six months of court-ordered AA meetings required, her days of vodka-filled water bottles are over.

Unfortunately her old friends want the party girl or nothing. Even her up-for-anything ex seems more interested in rehashing the past than actually helping Nat.

But then a recovering alcoholic named Joe inserts himself into Nat’s life and things start looking up. Joe is funny, smart, and calls her out in a way no one ever has.

He’s also older. A lot older.

Nat’s connection to Joe is overwhelming but so are her attempts to fit back into her old world, all while battling the constant urge to crack a bottle and blur that one thing she’s been desperate to forget.

Now in order to make a different kind of life, Natalie must pull together her broken parts and learn to fight for herself.

My Reaction
Christa Desir is an auto-read author for me, so to see this book and that cover with a release date in 2016, makes me sad. But really, gimmie this book. It looks like classic Christa, which makes me super excited for it. I honestly don’t know how I am going to wait seven more months for it. It looks dark, gritty and realistic, in other words, right up my alley!

So what books are you most looking forward to?
