About this deal

She would hug me and we would sit down and watch awful reality TV shows together and she would fall asleep halfway through, and then nothing would change. She definitely creates a feeling of universal sympathy - because it's hard trying to fit in, learning to accept yourself, and finding someone to love you - but she feels, perhaps deliberately, like a blank canvas. I will say that it was so obviously the direction the book was going, so it wasn’t really a surprise.

Not once but at least twice (I’m too lazy to flip through the book to check all the kisses), he says he wants to kiss her and then asks, “Is that okay? As they fall in love, Grant shares his own secret: he works several jobs to support his poor family.However, the fear of being outed as trans lingers, and there’s no telling what will happen if that fact is revealed. It's easy to act like my past never happened, but it feels like I've put up this wall around my heart that stops me from being really close with him. If I Was Your Girl is written mostly in the present day, but there are a number of scenes from back when Amanda was Andrew, showing us what her life was like before, the abuse she had to suffer, the hopelessness she felt, the certainty that no-one, including her parents, would want her if they knew the truth. She struggles with whether or not she should ever disclose her history to her new friends and what that means for her identity as a whole, to be a secret many would consider shameful.

IF I WAS YOUR GIRL is an intense pressure cooker drama centered on the chaotic affair between two interrelated lesbian couples.I found it difficult to like them at times because there were scenes where they were just making the entire situation about them, mourning their son even though they’ve got a SUPER FAB daughter in front of them. Later in the evening, she is confronted in the bathroom by a drunk Bee who comes on to her aggressively.

The million copy bestseller, A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara, is an immensely powerful and heartbreaking novel of brotherly love and. I feel like just the right amount of time was given for their feelings to develop and I loved how we actually got to see them go on dates and learn more about each other.Then she has an awkward encounter with Parker, the boy from the beginning of the book that liked Amanda initially and is the reason that Grant went to talk with her in the first place.

Her mother is very supportive but Amanda’s home town isn’t a safe place for her since she started living openly as a girl. For all of its positive points, there were certainly parts of this book that annoyed me or threw up speedbumps as I read. If I’d had the strength to be normal, I thought, or at least the strength to die, then everyone would have been happy. This starts off as a BIT of a typical YA contemporary with elements that discuss Amanda’s feelings as a trans girl, and weirdly, that’s what I liked about it. By completing your purchase, you agree to Audible's Conditions of Use and authorise Audible to charge your designated card or any other card on file.A necessary, universal story about feeling different and enduring prejudices…full of love, hope, and truth. If I Was Your Girl follows Amanda, a trans girl who’s just moved back in with her Dad after taking a year off from school after her surgeries. Her hands covered in flour folded on the table in front of her, too many biscuits in the oven because she was used to cooking for two. If you love coming-of-age stories that talk about family, friendship and first love, then you shouldn’t miss this one! No-one knows Andrew Hardy there so Amanda can be herself without necessarily being terrified that she will be attacked by transphobic bullies.
