Jorge Juarez-Bagdigian about this book: There are hundreds of amazing gay coming of age stories out there. So how do you make one that is unique? Enter Archie Ren, a man who's more than a man. He's not a transgender or a transexual and yes. There is a difference. He was born with two genders but to his friends and the rest of the world, he's only a man. His parents are in a state of denial and force him to suppress his feminine physiology from early age. The only true supporter Archie has growing up is his big sister. As he reaches adulthood, Archie must learn to explore and balance his dual sexuality and in the process find his place in the world.
In his own words, Archie will take you through an incredible journey of self-discovery. From the very first sentence, you'll swear he's talking right to you.
First crush, heartbreak, love, friendship, tragedy, harmony and acceptance. By the end of the book, you'll wish he was your best friend.
