    I really enjoyed this book. The story pulls the reader in effortlessly and Metzger has teenagers down to a "t" - the dialogue in particular is very strong. The characters were all kinds of endearing, too, especially the lovely Jude. The story is positive and uplifting without ignoring ...

    La verdad es que est muy bien el libro. Un YA que toca algunos temas con responsabilidad, sin perder la necesaria dosis de entretenimiento. La conversacin entre uno de los protagonistas y la psiquiatra es de lo mejor, sobre todo por lo que dice, cmo lo dice, y el tiempo que se le...

    I have a lot of thoughts and will share them more in depth at some point but for right now: this is the #ownvoices contemporary trans YA that I have wanted for YEARS and it's so good and so important. ...

    ?So keep your mind wide open and allow for stereotypes to be defied. Express yourself in whatever way you wish and allow others to do the same. Don?t make anyone afraid to stand up and stand out for who they are and who they want to be.? ~ Rachel Thompson After being bullied u...

    In a splendid mix of humor and teenage angst, Spy Stuff brings out the daunting difficulties of being trans male when all you really wanna be is male, all the while still being incredibly charming and a fantastically encapturing read. First days at a new school are hard enough, but ...

    A very good YA book which introduces readers to a gay F2M transgender character who is appealing, not too angsty but realistic in emotions, and fun to watch. Anton has changed schools, after being bullied for his transitioning at his old school. In this new one, he has registered as a ...

    I wrote this book for Prism Book Alliance and it was published yesterday. This is a book that helped me so much, I can?t begin to explain it. If you had told me it was entirely about a fifteen-year-old trans boy, I might not have picked it up. I requested it to review because I l...

    Not only have I found a new author, I?ve found the most amazing and beautiful storyline that I have ever read. I can?t begin to describe the amount of emotions that this book invoked in me, I went from sadness tears, to standing up applauding tears to pure enjoyment tears and I...

    2.5* Half-hearted. I?m sorry to say I can?t get rid of the impression this is done halfway. I was all the time ?Yes, but no?. ?Okay, but not really?. ?No, but whatever?. I wanted to be dazzled with all my being but I couldn?t. I was starstruck by...

    5 feel good stars from me, for this YA Transgender story full of humour, good friends...oh, and swearing ;) Anton's transition, and his problems with morons who won't deal with it are told in a matter-of-fact way. His blossoming relationship with Jude made me smile and feel that thin...

    I loved every minute of this book. Snappy, witty, beautifully British writing that drew me in and wouldn't let me go (except I was at Euro Pride Con, dammit, and had to keep putting it down). Finished it on the plane home and had a goofy happy smile. The characters are wonderful, a...

    I'd like to say that 15 year olds don't swear all the time, but a lot of those I've met actually do. I'd like to say that 15 year olds aren't sexually active, or actively thinking about sex, but a lot of those I've met actually are. I'd like so say that there aren't arseholes like An...

    Absolutely loved this story. I was glued from the first page. I adored Anton and Jude. The way their relationship unfolds is the sweetest <3 From the cover and the title I wasn't sure what to expect, but if you like YA and you want a read that will make your heart big and have y...

    A copy was provided in exchange for an honest review. This is my first transgender story and it was EXCELLENT!!! Anton was born Natasha, but gender wasn't an issue as a young child. Wearing dresses didn't mean anything because Natasha was still allowed to play sports and have short ...

    Anton is a fifteen year old FTM transgender teen dealing with a lot. His father refuses to acknowledge he's a boy. This is one of the reasons there was serious friction in his parent's marriage, and was a big reason leading to their divorce. Now that the divorce is done, Anton and h...

    3.5 stars Jude was a bit too perfect to be true and in part the same goes for the rest of their friends, but I?d like to think that I?m just too cynical and that some teenagers these days are really that accepting and mature while still being completely obnoxious teenagers. Ro...

    The actual rating is 4,5 stars. I was a bit bumped at first when I realize there are no actual spies with guns, missions and secret ops. (I'm an idiot who picks books from their tbr without checking why it's on tbr in the first place, don't judge). I got over it quickly tho, the bo...

    This one blindsided me a bit. It was my first read by this author and the content is not usually what I would select in a potential read. But I thoroughly enjoyed it. The story begins with Anton Williams, a gay/ftm transgender boy, who is starting his first day at his new school...

    The books I gravitate to tend to be gritty, gut wrenching, and angst filled. Spy Stuff is none of this; it is sweet and cute. From my perspective, sweet was perfect for this story and I loved it. Although the story is sweet, it does have heavy moments and themes. Anton's backstory is t...
