Twitter Capsule: Equally bold and delicate—itself a feat. Young trans protagonist retains watchful reserve but is very much part of the world.

VOR:   Ingenious photography; as novel with sound and framing as Martel, but less hard work. Innovative and rare at all levels, even with its tact and modesty.
