Elle is a loner. She doesn't need people. Which is a good thing,
because she's on her own: she had to move into her own apartment so
her mother's boyfriend won't have to deal with her.
Then she meets Frank, the guy who lives next door. He's older and
has a girlfriend, but Elle can't stop thinking about him. Frank
isn't like anyone Elle has ever met. He listens to her. He's
gentle. And Elle is falling for him, hard.
But Frank is different in a way that Elle was never prepared for:
he's transgender. And when Elle learns the truth, her world is

a stunning story to make you laugh, cry, and honor the power of
