Starts as a middle of the night road trip mother and child are on an adventure It becomes apparent that the Mother referred to as Ma throughout the book is looking to make amends or fulfill promises that she had made in her earlier years and is dragging Alex with her As the road trip takes them through Florida Georgia Nevada California and into Vancouver they are engaged in fist fights kidnapping breaking and entering and arson And that is just Ma's given allotment to this journey Alex is 14 years old Alex is gender neutral A uote from the story sums up Alex's feelings very well So all was good in my ueer little world until a group decided that if they couldn’t get me to cop to what variety of crotch giblets I was keeping in my pants the next best thing would be to catch me naked Refusing to be labeled or put in a box but harassed in school and refusing to state a specific gender Alex is caught in a handicapped bathroom by a number of fellow students and roughed up while being disrobed This has a dramatic effect on both Alex and Ma I felt there were some good parts to this story and also some odd twists in the authors wording that gave me pause and made me reread passages finding that a couple of times statements made no sense not even by tying into the story at a later time There were also a few time line slip ups An example of that is when the story stated that Ma slept until 3 pm in the afternoon then moved around groggily for awhile but then just a few paragraphs later stated that finally at 1 pm Ma began to pack up her things Due to these above stated reasons and others like them I felt a bit disconnected at times and did not feel that overall the story flowed as well as it could have Thank you to Penguin First to Read and Hogarth Crown Publishing for allowing me the opportunity to read and review this novel
