Where to buy it


Alex, a Latino transgender teen living in Hamilton, Ontario, struggles to reconcile his feelings with a real-life crush on a boy in his class from the relationship he has with a boy he knows online — only to find that the two were the same all along. Without overly graphic content, important issues youth face surrounding online messaging, social media and sexting are brought to light in a refreshing take on an LGTBQ+ relationship.
