about this item
Alex is ready for things to change, in a big way. Everyone seems to think she's a boy, but for Alex the whole boy/girl thing isn't as simple as either/or, and when she decides girl is closer to the truth, no one knows how to react, least of all her parents. Undeterred, Alex begins to create a new identity for herself: ditching one school, enrolling in another, and throwing out most of her clothes. But the other Alex--the boy Alex--has a lot to say about that.? Heartbreaking and droll in equal measures,Alex As Well is a brilliantly told story of exploring gender and sexuality, navigating friendships, and finding a place to belong.
