J is a typical teenager, who struggles to fit in and always feels different. However, J is actually different from his peers, J was born with a female body, but he feels like a boy. J explores his identity, coming out to his parents, and trying to transition, all while dealing with regular teenage drama too.

Any student who struggles with their identity will find something in common with the main character, J. LGBT students will especially love this book.
