"This is Beautiful Music for Ugly Children, on community radio 90.3, KZUK. I'm Gabe. Welcome to my show."

My birth name is Elizabeth, but I'm a guy. Gabe. My parents think I've gone crazy and the rest of the world is happy to agree with them, but I know I'm right. I've been a boy my whole life.

When you think about it, I'm like a record. Elizabeth is my A side, the song everybody knows, and Gabe is my B side-not heard as often, but just as good.

It's time to let my B side play.

Winner of the 2014 Stonewall Book Award for Children's and Young Adult Literature.

"Every so often a book comes along that is so sharp, so moving, so real, and so good, you want to press it into everyone's hands and say, Read this! READ THIS!"-Courtney Summers, author of Cracked Up to Be and This is Not a Test

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! I loved this book-the main character, Gabe, brought me into his world of music and wonder, but also his struggles with being transgender. It was amazing to read.
