Publisher's Summary

All Pen wants is to be the kind of girl she's always been. So why does everyone have a problem with it? They think the way she looks and acts means she's trying to be a boy - that she should quit trying to be something she's not. If she dresses like a girl and does what her folks want, it will show respect. If she takes orders and does what her friend, Colby, wants, it will show her loyalty.
But respect and loyalty, Pen discovers, are empty words. Old-world parents, disintegrating friendships, and strong feelings for other girls drive Pen to see the truth - that in order to be who she truly wants to be, she'll have to man up.

Wonderful gift for butch girls

This book gives voice to all females who celebrate being female and celebrate being butch. A perfect coming of age story for girls like us. An honouring of those of us who don't comply with gender roles. I love both the struggle and the self awareness of the shero. Thank you for not making this another YA Novell about Trans experience, what a blessing this girl has at least one adult to sees her and appreciates the unique version of femaleness, a version that doesn't need to become male to be ok.
