Symptoms Of Being Human
By Jeff Garvin
Publication Date: February 2nd 2016
The first thing you’re going to want to know about me is: Am I a boy, or am I a girl?

Riley Cavanaugh is many things: Punk rock. Snarky. Rebellious. And gender fluid. Some days Riley identifies as a boy, and others as a girl. The thing is . . . Riley isn’t exactly out yet. And between starting a new school and having a congressman father running for reelection in uber-conservative Orange County, the pressure—media and otherwise—is building up in Riley’s so-called “normal” life.

On the advice of a therapist, Riley starts an anonymous blog to vent those pent-up feelings and tell the truth of what it’s REALLY like to be a gender-fluid teenager. But just as Riley’s starting to settle in at school—even developing feelings for a mysterious outcast—the blog goes viral, and an unnamed commenter discovers Riley’s real identity, threatening exposure. Riley must make a choice: walk away from what the blog has created—a lifeline, new friends, a cause to believe in—or stand up, come out, and risk everything.

Why Am I Waiting On This? 
I'm excited abou reading this book as I haven't learnt much about gender fluidity and I think that I would be educated by this book about this subject!!

  2. I can't wait for this book to come out - I don't think there enough books on this subject on the YA scene. I think it will be interesting to see how the author handles such a taboo topic.
    Great choice!
