Overview

Adolescence is difficult for most students, but especially so for Kevin Campbell. Since childhood, Kevin has felt more like a girl than a boy. After a confusing childhood and disastrous experiences at school, Kevin transfers to Shore View High. What will happen at this new school? Will Kevin experience acceptance or rejection?

According to many experts, gender identity exists in the mind of the individual; it is a psychological concept not necessarily based on biological fact. If someone believes he is female, even though biologically he is male, then his gender identity would be female. In most cases, one's gender identity matches his or her biological sex organs-but not always! You'll find out more about this confusing condition in the pages of this book.
