All Pen wants is to be the kind of girl sheâs always been. So why does everyone have a problem with it? They think the way she looks and acts means sheâs trying to be a boyâthat she should quit trying to be something sheâs not. If she dresses like a girl, and does what her folks want, it will show respect. If she takes orders and does what her friend Colby wants, it will show her loyalty.
But respect and loyalty, Pen discovers, are empty words. Old-world parents, disintegrating friendships, and strong feelings for other girls drive Pen to see the truthâthat in order to be who she truly wants to be, sheâll have to man up.
Perfect for fans of Meredith Russo, Becky Albertalli, Alex Sanchez, and Jaye Robin Brown!
