A must-read book for everyone. I don't care if you're trans, cis, questioning, unsure, all of the above, or none of the above. Everyone should read BEAUTIFUL MUSIC FOR UGLY CHILDREN. Being cis, but an ally to everyone and wanting to educate myself, I loved this book. You really empathize with Gabe, want to root for him, and support him. There are ups and downs, just like real life.The ending felt too quick, too good, but it's really only a side complaint. This should be a book full of hope for anyone who is trans, whether they've told anyone or not. It's also empowering for everyone. Love is the answer, and you don't have to know the question. Just the answer. Love.
