Five lovable misfits from YA-lit

At The Barnes & Noble Book Blog, Dahlia Adler tagged five lovable misfits from Young Adult literature, including:
Gabe (Beautiful Music for Ugly Children, by Kirstin Cronn-Mills)

A teenage boy born into a girl’s body, it’s impossible for Gabe to feel like he fits in when the way he appears to everyone else feels like a lie. But he manages to translate that outsider feeling into a radio show for others who feel like they don’t fit in, and creates a beautiful fan club of misfits, united by the very things that make them different. One of my favorite must-read LGBT YA titles, and winner of the 2014 Stonewall Book Award for Children’s and Young Adult Literature.
