From the Series Lorimer Real Love
Alex, a Latino transgender teen, is struggling to balance his feelings for a real-life crush on a Jewish boy in his class and the relationship he has with a boy he knows online—only to find that the two were the same all along. Although not explicit, important issues youth face surrounding online chat rooms, social media, and sexting are brought to light in this refreshing take on an LGTBQ+ relationship. Themes of secret identities and love letters together in a modern LGBTQ+ romance for the digital age make this an exciting and relevant read for teens.
