Are you the A side or the B side?
Beautiful Music for Ugly Children
By: Kirstin Cronn-Mills
Genre: YA LGBTQ
4 out of 5
This was a well-written book on a very sensitive topic. It was informative and entertaining, while still being political correct. I loved how the story showed several sides of Gabe (AKA Liz) and how his family and friends grew to understand him better. I liked how it approached the transsexual issue realistically without too much drama. The music aspect was an added bonus, and I definitely loved the chapter titles. I would be interested in reading about the next chapter in Gabe’s life. This would be a good book for friends of gender confused individuals. I did read the author’s note and although I appreciate that she defined some important terms, I disagreed with some of her opinions. However, everyone is entitled to their own opinion especially on controversial topics.
