In this LGBTQ+ YA coming of age novel, fourteen-year-old Eleanor Fromme is forced to grow up very quickly as she deals with the reoccurrence of her mother’s mental illness. Set in a small New Jersey beach town in 1994, Eleanor relies on the help of friends and mentors as she finds the words to come out and figures out the language of being gay.
When her English teacher assigns a class-long project to write letters to someone that no longer exists, Eleanor chooses God, despite the fact that she is an atheist. In the writing and sharing of these letters, Eleanor falls in love with her new best friend, Aggie, befriends her former bully, James, and at a local open mic, meets the mesmerizing Reigh, a trans woman and bass player, who encourages Eleanor in her own struggles with gender identity.
This book is a celebration of coming out and the realization that it doesn’t just occur once. It is a continual process, which doesn’t always get easier. This is a story of surviving and the continuous struggle to do so.
