Two kids, Morgan and Eric, are bonded for life after being born on the same day at the same time. We meet them once a year on their shared birthday as they grow and change: as Eric figures out who he is and how he fits into the world, and as Morgan makes the difficult choice to live as her true self. Over the years, they will drift apart, come together, fight, make up, and break up—and ultimately, realize how inextricably they are a part of each other.
Their story's an honest tale of one's journey of living in the wrong body. It's a tale of pain and loss, a tale of confusion and floundering. My heart hurts for Morgan throughout, as her struggles are real and raw. Her need to escape, her constant drowning under the weigh to it all is a tough read.
