Lots to offer

The premise of the book centers around the 2 main characters, Tim (who identifies as Lily) and Norbert (nickname Dunkin). The book alternates between their perspectives, each telling the stories of a confused transgender girl and a boy who suffers with bipolar disorder. Each of the characters want to do what is right, but each struggles with how they can be themselves when it sometimes seems like the world is against them. Mentions both male and female anatomy "penis", "boobs" and a few tame curse words. Portrays the awkwardness of middle school accurately. Valuable to teach empathy and understanding.
