Frighteningly Good Book!

I picked this book up on a recommendation and was taken aback by just how excellent it is. I would liken the writing to that of Michelle Tea's fictional work in the sense that it's very engaging - partially because you can't believe what's happening and partially because you want to know what will happen next. They tread on similar ground - queer/trans/ issues along with family stuff and relationships. A quick read because F.L.L. is such a compelling storyteller that you will find it difficult to put the book down. (Her first book is also quite good. It bodes well for her writing career that there was notable growth between the first and second book. It makes me incredibly excited for her third book!) Also, Akashic Books has not let me down yet.
