Freeible Fridays #16

Hey Everyone!

As you know, I have been trying this new thing for me where I tell you about a book I loved and share a free ebook link to that book if possible.

I think this novel goes hand in hand with yesterday’s post, a poem about how my voice is changing to fit the human I was meant to be. Riley Cavanaugh is one of my favourite non-binary characters. I mean, they explain what it’s like not female or male yet a bit of both at the same time. Their voice is in the form of a blog a bit like myself. I love books with characters who are bloggers, so if you are like me, this is the novel to read.

First Lines:

NEW POST: ONE OR THE OTHER
OCTOBER 1, 6:55 AM
The first thing you’re going to want to know about me is: Am I a boy, or am I a girl?
I STOP TYPING AND STARE at the cursor, which flashes at me incessantly, as if mocking my inability to write one stupid post.
“Riley!” It’s my mom, calling me from downstairs in her singsongy voice. “If you still want to be early, you’d better come down for breakfast!”
I glance at the clock. I’m not really running that late—but I want to get the lay of the land while the campus is still mostly empty. “I’ll be down in a minute!” I say, then click Delete, slam my laptop shut, and slide off my bed.

Goodreads Blurb:

The first thing you’re going to want to know about me is: Am I a boy, or am I a girl?

Riley Cavanaugh is many things: Punk rock. Snarky. Rebellious. And gender fluid. Some days Riley identifies as a boy, and others as a girl. The thing is…Riley isn’t exactly out yet. And between starting a new school and having a congressman father running for reelection in uber-conservative Orange County, the pressure—media and otherwise—is building up in Riley’s so-called “normal” life.

On the advice of a therapist, Riley starts an anonymous blog to vent those pent-up feelings and tell the truth of what it’s REALLY like to be a gender fluid teenager. But just as Riley’s starting to settle in at school—even developing feelings for a mysterious outcast—the blog goes viral, and an unnamed commenter discovers Riley’s real identity, threatening exposure. Riley must make a choice: walk away from what the blog has created—a lifeline, new friends, a cause to believe in—or stand up, come out, and risk everything.

On a quick note, I wrote some erotica that I’m not sure it’s appropriated for me to post here. My idea was to put it on my patron, but not sure if anyone would be interested in that. So, please let me know in the comments.
