Summary

A middle school boy makes new friends and discovers things about himself when he joins an LGBTQ+ group.

Rick's never questioned much. He's gone along with his best friend Jeff even when Jeff's acted like a bully and a jerk. He's let his father joke with him about which hot girls he might want to date even though that kind of talk always makes him uncomfortable. And he hasn't given his own identity much thought, because everyone else around him seemed to have figured it out.

But now Rick's gotten to middle school, and new doors are opening. One of them leads to the school's Rainbow Spectrum club, where kids of many genders and identities congregate, including Melissa, the girl who sits in front of Rick in class and seems to have her life together. Rick wants his own life to be that... understood. Even if it means breaking some old friendships and making some new ones.

NOTE : Features characters from the author's previous novel, 'George'.

NOTE : Features discusssion of what it means to be homosexual, transgender or non-binary, and the words and acronyms used by and about the community. This is done clearly and at a suitable level for readers
