Feel Good story

This was a nice story about a kid with disabilities that resulted from an accident that left him fused with an alien when he was a toddler. It's cute, fun to read, well written. There is a love interest in the book. It's very cute and handled well. The love and support in the family is nice to read about. There is a gender non-conforming grandparent, a same-sex love interest, and a bi/pan parent.
