This truly is an own voices narrative from and author who did drag herself before writing about Nima, a budding drag king. It's a fun introduction to a world that, to many people, is the only place they can be their true selves. Nima is a nuanced teenager who makes realistic yet frustratingly poor choices in her quest for both romantic and familial love. Many of the secondary characters are archetypes that lack depth and dimension- the confused bully, the nerdy best friend, the manic pixie dream girl, the fairy drag mother. However, it's an enjoyable story and a window into a world not often portrayed in YA fiction.
