    One thought on “The Good Guys”

    1. This was cute and low-key and left me with a smile. It's a short, quiet story about a trans guy who's still somewhat finding his place in the world. He meets the very cool bi-gender Avery and they really hit it off and it's a cute nerd love-fest. There's a bit of the "educational trans story" feeling here and there, but it's not too overdone. It's neat to read about two people who are both gender diverse, but have had very different experiences with their gender identity. I liked this but I thin [...]

    2. Oliver is the geek’s geek, and he likes it that way. When he comes across a cute elf on the last day of his group’s LARP event, he is sad that they will not get a chance to talk again for months.

    3. I received a free copy via Inked Rainbow Reads in exchange for an honest review.This was such a cute, fun, sweet story. First of all, it had me at LARPing (live-action role play, for those not in the know). I love a geek-nerd premise for a story, and I admit, this wasn't one I'd seen before.Oliver is a really refreshing character. He's honest about his inner struggles, but he's also not overdrawn. I think my favorite part was when he talked about liking to skip the kids-and-mortgage talk and go [...]

    4. Absolutely a gem. A story about learning to be yourself by becoming someone else, while really becoming yourself. Layered and lovely, it will leave you feeling passionately content.

    5. It was my first time reading with a primary transgender character and it was a lovely, light, almost coming-of-age story despite being an adult already.
