Nick Fraser is a true romantic. He wants the guy instead of the girl, but other than that, he wants everything his favourite
rom-coms depict: the courtship, the passionate first kiss, the
fairy-tale wedding. But after breaking up with the love of his life, Nick wonders if anything fairy-tale will ever happen for him.
Then he meets Katie, who’s just like a rom-com heroine. She’s sharp, funny, sweet, and as into music and punk culture as Nick is. What’s more, he’s incredibly attracted to her—even though she’s a woman. Nick has never considered that he might be bisexual, but his feelings for Katie are definitely real.
When Katie reveals that she’s transgender, Nick starts to see how much he doesn’t understand about the world, queer identity, and himself.
He is hopelessly in love with Katie, but this isn’t a fairy tale, and Nick’s friends and family may not accept his new relationship. If he wants it all, he has to have the courage to make his fantasy a reality.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I am so glad to see a transgender as a leading love interest. Thank you! It isn't important to me that there are errors with what it means to be transgender. The author put it out there and it makes people question their perceptions, do some research, and maybe begin to see past their own preconceived ideas. I hope that the author takes what they've learned in feedback from others about being trans and keeps writing them as leads and love interests. As far as the characters, I so liked Katie. She's strong, independent, giving and vulnerable. She allows Nick to ask questions, but corrects him when he's wrong or hurtful. She impressed me with her ability to decide what is right for her. Nick is great. He struggles a bit with his own world view but in the end it revolves around Katie. Terrific ending. Adult read
