A book that Jill Soloway, the awardwinning creator of Transparent, called a terrific read for all ages and Ami Polonsky, author of Gracefully Grayson, called an emotionally complex and achingly real read.Twelveyearold Shane Woods is just a regular boy. He loves pitching for his baseball team, working on his graphic novel, and hanging out with his best friend, Josh. But Shane is keeping something private, something that might make a difference to his friends and teammates, even Josh. And when a classmate threatens to reveal his secret, Shanes whole world comes crashing down. It will take a lot of courage for Shane to ignore the hate and show the world that hes still the same boy he was before. And in the end, those who stand beside him may surprise everyone, including Shane.
