Eric and Morgan have known each other since birth–they were born on the same day, in the same rural Tennessee hospital. This fast-paced emotional book, told from both of their perspectives between their 13th and 18th birthdays, tells the story of their friendship, love story, and of Morgan’s coming to terms with her identity as a trans woman.
