Adam by Ariel Schrag

This new novel by a gifted comic writer delivers a twist on the conventional story about The Summer That Changed Everything. A teenager goes to visit his sister in New York City and ends up posing as a transgendered man in order to win the affection of a young woman who identifies as gay. Schrag has created a moving portrait of the moments in life that force us to define ourselves.
