It's senior year and Logan is trying to get over being dumped by his girlfriend of 3 years when his attention is diverted by a fascinating new girl to his small Missouri town: Sage. Sage is tall and lovely and funny and off-beat, and Logan's growing attraction to her is given a sharp set-back when Sage -- who has been backing away from his advances -- finally kisses him and then confesses that she was born a boy. Logan is a product of his tiny mid-America town and not particularly open-minded; his first reaction is (almost) to punch her in the face. But Sage has gotten under his skin, and Logan spends the rest of the book wrestling with his own homophobia and fear, his continued attraction to Sage, their friendship/flirtation, his confusion about her gender identity, his pity for her isolation, and his growing empathy for another human creature. Not a tidy book, but then, the emotions and questions it explores are far from neat. No pat characters here. and no easy answers, but a messy, interesting read.
