Parrotfish
by Ellen Wittlinger




Overview -
The groundbreaking novel from critically acclaimed author Ellen Wittlinger that tells the story of a transgender teen's search for identity and acceptance has now been updated to include current terminology and an updated list of resources.

Angela Katz-McNair never felt quite right as a girl. So she cuts her hair short, purchases some men's clothes and chose a new name: Grady. While coming out as transgender feels right to Grady, he isn't prepared for the reactions of his friends and family. Why can't they accept that Grady is just being himself?

Grady's life is miserable until he finds friends in unexpected places--the school geek, Sebastian, who tells Grady that there is a precedent for transgenders in the natural world, and Kita, a senior, who might just be Grady's first love.

In a voice tinged with humor and sadness, Ellen Wittlinger explores Grady's struggles--universal struggles any teen can relate to.
