J had always felt different. He was certain that eventually everyone would understand who he really was: a boy mistakenly born as a girl. Yet as he grew up, his body began to betray him; eventually J stopped praying to wake up a "real boy" and started covering up his body, keeping himself invisible -- from his parents, from his friends, from the world. But after being deserted by the best friend he thought would always be by his side, J decides that he's done hiding -- it's time to be who he really is. And this time he is determined not to give up, no matter the cost.Cris Beam delivers a powerful and inspiring story of self-discovery as readers share in J's struggle to find his own path and to love his true self.

3.5 I am J
I seem to be on a Nerdy Book Club streak, as this selection (and the next I am likely to review) was inspired by having seen a review for I am J in early October and also saw it mentioned in the recent roundup of books for teens addressing issues of love and abuse. I don’t know why I have recently...
