My daughter is transgender. Like Anton, for years, she worried no one would ever want to date her. This book felt like a gift, a gift to young adults like my daughter who don't believe they'll get a happily ever after. As I read, I kept feeling excited and happy that so many trans issues were being confronted and addressed so beautifully. Spy Stuff offers a thoughtful, insightful, informative look at gender identity, transitioning, body dysphoria, sexual identity, labels, and coming out. I am thrilled that there's such sweet, romantic trans representation for YA readers.
I know I tend to gravitate to gritty, angst filled books and sweet doesn't usually work for me, but in this case, sweet seems perfect. For my part, I wouldn't have wanted it any other way.
One element Metzger uses well in this story is anger. It's not always well-aimed, but every now and then, getting mad IS the best reaction.

Five stars is nowhere enough. Read this book and get as many friends to read it, especially young people, it's groundbreaking.
Jude, I <3 you so much, you're my hero!! You horrified me too, losing your virginity at 12 for Heaven's sake, but whatever....I just couldn't comprehend even thinking about sex at that age, and back in the day ;), we didn't. You were loyal, trustworthy and a true friend to Anton when he desperately needed one, and didn't know where else to turn after vicious bullying at his previous school. Shame about your footie team, but we all make mistakes. :D
Anton...can't you divorce yourself from your Dad?? Emancipation?? He's a complete and utter moron and deserves your unreserved contempt!! Refusing to accept that the child he knew as Natasha no longer exists, but has become Anton...deliberately baiting him whenever he sees him, still calling him Natasha. God, no wonder your mum divorced him!!
I know from following Matthew that this story is more than likely based on his own experiences with transition and the lack of acceptance by people including members of his own family. You are NOT faceless - see cover of story - you are a wonderful author, and I for one love reading your work. Long may it continue!!
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 you smiling ear to ear, this is the book for you.
More people need to read this for sure. Recommended.
