More About Freakboy by Kristin Elizabeth Clark
 
 
 
Overview

From the outside, Brendan Chase seems to have it pretty easy. He's a star wrestler, a video game aficionado, and a loving boyfriend to his seemingly perfect match, Vanessa. But on the inside, Brendan struggles to understand why his body feels so wrong why he sometimes fantasizes having long hair, soft skin, and gentle curves. Is there even a name for guys like him? Guys who sometimes want to be girls? Or is Brendan just a freak?

In Freakboy's razor-sharp verse, Kristin Clark folds three narratives into one powerful story: Brendan trying to understand his sexual identity, Vanessa fighting to keep her and Brendan's relationship alive, and Angel struggling to confront her demons.

An important story, written with compassion and startling insight. Ellen Hopkins, The New York Times bestselling author of the Crank trilogy

Debut novelist Clark uses free verse to write a gripping story about a complex topic: the challenges of growing up transgender or genderqueer." Publishers Weekly, starred review

This gutsy, tripartite poem explores a wider variety of identities cis-, trans-, genderqueer than a simple transgender storyline, making it stand out. Kirkus Review, starred review
