Two boys. Two secrets. David Piper has always been an outsider. His parents think he’s gay. The school bully thinks he’s a freak. Only his two best friends know the real truth – David wants to be a girl. On the first day at his new school Leo Denton has one goal – to be invisible. Attracting the attention of the most beautiful girl in year 11 is definitely not part of that plan. When Leo stands up for David in a fight, an unlikely friendship forms. But things are about to get messy. Because at Eden Park School secrets have a funny habit of not staying secret for long …
This is estelles book that she chose with Christmas vouchers and she whizzed through it loving it and was quite emotional when she finished .
By chance I was laying on her bed and it was there and I started reading .
I was annoyed I couldn’t just finish in one go as Thursdays are my busy day so was reading bits here and there but finally finished on way home .
This book is amazing and very powerful .Its funny and deals with so many sensitive and relative issues that I think everyone not just teenagers should read this as this will open your mind and warm your heart .
It is a beautiful friendship between David and leo and through that they help each other grow and to self identify .
This really helped me to put myself in their shoes and to understand more of how they are feeling .
A fantastic read that helps to be avoid prejudices and grow on compassion.
I look forward to more from this author and estelles has already ranked it as one of her top reads of 2015!!
