SYMPTOMS OF BEING HUMAN
The first thing you’re going to want to know about me is: Am I a boy, or am I a girl?
Riley Cavanaugh is many things: Punk rock. Snarky. Rebellious. And gender fluid. Some days Riley identifies as a boy, and others as a girl. The thing is . . . Riley isn’t exactly out yet. And between starting a new school and having a congressman father running for reelection in uber-conservative Orange County, the pressure—media and otherwise—is building up in Riley’s so-called “normal” life.
On the advice of a therapist, Riley starts an anonymous blog to vent those pent-up feelings and tell the truth of what it’s REALLY like to be a gender-fluid teenager. But just as Riley’s starting to settle in at school—even developing feelings for a mysterious outcast—the blog goes viral, and an unnamed commenter discovers Riley’s real identity, threatening exposure. Riley must make a choice: walk away from what the blog has created—a lifeline, new friends, a cause to believe in—or stand up, come out, and risk everything.
“With a main character who truly deserves to be called unique, combined with heartbreak and triumphs that are universal, this unforgettable book made me laugh and also cry. Garvin’s powerful new voice rocks!” – Lissa Price, International bestselling author of Starters

This seems like it will be very interesting to here about the adventure the main character goes through, and either choosing the safe path or the risky path in the end. The cover adds a nice touch with just the hair showing so people don't assume or give an opinion of what gender she looks like she is.
I like it. The cover is very interesting in it's simplicity.
It is readily apparent that this book is about gender identity which is a hot issue right now.
The synopsis is good. I am intrigued.
I'm so looking forward to reading this, and the cover is fab. It's always how minimalist pics can tell a story. Thank you for sharing!
