What a fascinating book. Comprising of an inspiring and empowering chronicle of self-discovery, the plot has been beautifully narrated from two perspectives – the lead character John and his best friend Aureus. The bullying from peers, the struggles and self-depreciation of a teenager who is stuck in a body that he is not able to understand or relate with. Despite the fact that the entire plot has been divided into four sections, there is no distinction in the way the story flows. The lesson imparted goes beyond what was expected off the plot. The characters are strong and empowering and immediately form a bond with the readers without any hardship. The cover image definitely could have been better. 

My opinion: A beautiful empowering book that can be recommended to all age groups. 

My rating: 4 out of 5
