This October author Kristin Cronn-Mills’ second novel Beautiful Music for Ugly Children (Flux) hit bookstore shelves. The young adult novel tells the story of a transgender teenager’s journey into love, acceptance, and adulthood. It has been described as a novel “so sharp, so moving, so real, and so good, you want to press it into everyone’s hand and say Read this!” [Courtney Sumers, author of Cracked Up to Be and This is Not a Test]

From the book:

My birth name is Elizabeth, but I’m a guy. Gabe. My parents think I’ve gone crazy and the rest of the world is happy to agree with them, but I know I’m right. I’ve been a boy my whole life.

When you think about it, I’m like a record. Elizabeth is my A side, the song everybody knows, and Gabe is my B side—not heard as often, but just as good.

It’s time to let my B side play.
