About this item

"A gender-fluid, John Hughes-style fantasy plus all the feels."--Salon"This series takes the ultimate teen experience—not feeling comfortable in one’s own skin—and folds it into a fantastical premise: with each year of high school, a young Changer wakes up as an entirely different person . . . While living with new identities might encourage empathy for other people, the more immediate concern for many Changers is how to survive a year of high school. Readers will connect with Kim as she tentatively makes new friends; watches Audrey, the girl she still cares about, from afar; and struggles with who she is and who she wants to be, while finding comfort in the theater crowd. This strong entry in the series is a good choice for readers looking for books about friendship, identity, and LGBTQ issues.”
--School Library Journal

"Kim's voice and the banter between characters are funny, and they feel real. The identity and marginalization issues loom large, but instead of being shoehorned into side characters, they're scooped up and taken into a deeper, entertaining, fantastic narrative."
--Kirkus Reviews

Praise for the Changers series:

"Changers should appeal to a broad demographic. Teenagers, after all, are the world's leading experts on trying on, and then promptly discarding, new identities."
--New York Times Book Review

"Fantastic and poignant."
--John Green

When we last saw Oryon Small he was kidnapped and locked in a basement, his best friend Chase dying in his arms. In Book Three of the groundbreaking Changers series, Oryon awakens as Kim Cruz, an Asian American girl whose body looks nothing like she expected or desired.

Where Changers Book One: Drew dealt primarily with issues of gender and bias, and Changers Book Two: Oryon explored issues concerning race and bigotry, Changers Book Three: Kim tackles the thorny, less straightforward subjects of body shaming, self-esteem, grief, mental illness, and how the expectations of the outside world can't help but color the way we see ourselves.

Kim--smart, funny, and finally fed up with the cards she's been dealt--is finding out that friends change, love doesn't always mean forever, and growing up means living your truth, even if it isn't pretty.
