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.
What I picked this novel?
I think a trans character who lived in a religious background will always make me feel this way. If I had picked this novel a few years ago, I wouldn’t have been able to finish it since it would have been too parallel to my real life. Luckily in case, my parents are starting to come to terms with it all. However, this isn’t always the case for the LGBT+ community, which saddens me.
If you saw me now, you’d say my dreams are coming true. I’m about to audition for a spot at the most prestigious art high school in the country. That’d be any actor’s dream. But last night, I dreamed I was naked in a classroom full of people. Will that be coming true? What
about the one where I’m onstage and can’t remember my lines? I’ll pass on both. But this dream, I wouldn’t mind if it came true.
I smooth out my shirt, run my hand through my hair, and walk into the classroom. Unlike in my dream, I’m wearing clothes. It’s a regular classroom except for the fact that there’s a stage and a Steinway piano. Back home, we’d push desks out of the way and roll in the slightly out-of-tune piano from the band room. Other than that, it’s a normal classroom that could possibly change my life forever. No big deal.
Aspiring actor August Greene just landed a coveted spot at the prestigious School of Performing Arts in New York. There’s only one problem: His conservative parents won’t accept that he’s transgender. And to stay with his aunt in the city, August must promise them he won’t transition.
August is convinced he can play the part his parents want while acting cool and confident in the company of his talented new friends.
But who is August when the lights go down? And where will he turn when the roles start hitting a little too close to home?
