This was a short, but sweet story about a girl learning about her new friend at school who is trans. It's such a wonderful story, especially given it teaches about acceptance, understanding, and I think the way Evelyn and Queen's friendship is shown is really splendid.

Book is pretty good but too short . Disappointed with the ending , kind of leaves you up
in the air . But still worth the read ,sure doesn't take long to finish it .
