Waiting on Wednesday (30): Freakboy by: Kristin Elizabeth Clark

Goodreads Summary: 

From the outside, Brendan Chase seems to have it pretty easy. He’s a star wrestler, a video game aficionado, and a loving boyfriend to his seemingly perfect match, Vanessa. But on the inside, Brendan struggles to understand why his body feels so wrong—why he sometimes fantasizes having long hair, soft skin, and gentle curves. Is there even a name for guys like him? Guys who sometimes want to be girls? Or is Brendan just a freak?

In razor-sharp verse, Kristin Clark folds three narratives into one powerful story: Brendan trying to understand his sexual identity, Vanessa fighting to keep her and Brendan’s relationship alive, and Angel struggling to confront her demons.

Expected Publication Date: Oct. 22nd, 2013 from Farrar, Straus, and Giroux

Why I Cannot Wait For This Book:  I love books about tough/taboo issues, I feel that there not only important, but make people less ignorant to such topics, and make you more well-rounded. This book sounds powerful, and heartbreaking, and I can't wait to read it.
