You only hurt the ones you love.
Logan Witherspoon recently discovered that his girlfriend of three years cheated on him. But things start to look up when a new student breezes through the halls of his small-town high school. Sage Hendricks befriends Logan at a time when he no longer trusts or believes in people. Sage has been homeschooled for a number of years and her parents have forbidden her to date anyone, but she won’t tell Logan why. One day, Logan acts on his growing feelings for Sage. Moments later, he wishes he never had. Sage finally discloses her big secret: she’s actually a boy. Enraged, frightened, and feeling betrayed, Logan lashes out at Sage and disowns her. But once Logan comes to terms with what happened, he reaches out to Sage in an attempt to understand her situation. But Logan has no idea how rocky the road back to friendship will be.

Takes teen angst to a new level

What did you love best about Almost Perfect?

The character of Sage was so lovable I dreaded the inevitable moment of revelation. For the first time I understood how transgendered people might feel, and I learned something from living through Logan's doubt and rollercoaster emotions about my own prejudices.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Sage was my favorite even though we experienced everything through Logan's eyes. Vulnerable yet strong and always lovable. could she be realistic? I don't know.

Which character – as performed by Kirby Heyborne – was your favorite?

Logan was the best performance. I think every girl wants a boyfriend like Logan.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I think it was when he was driving her to the hospital and realized he was overcome with emotion.

an almost perfect book

Captured the dilemma and struggles of young transgender women in a vivid and amazing way. As an older transwoman, I was quite impressed. Loved it!
