A trans teen walks the fine line between doing whatever it takes for his acting dream and staying true to himself in this moving, thought-provoking YA novel from the acclaimed author of Stay Gold.

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?

"One of the most powerful YA books of the year."
Popsugar

"The story will help readers understand how multifaceted and complicated the transgender experience can be. A well-paced, unique story."
School Library Journal


"McSmith’s approach to gender and dysphoria is compassionate, and the musical’s cast dynamics are well sketched; theatre fans especially will find the discussion of representation on the stage compelling."
Publishers Weekly
