Dean is a trans guy, but everyone believes he is a lesbian. Fearing backlash from his parents who didn’t respond well to the lesbian admission, and his girlfriend, Dean plans on waiting until college to fully come out. But then, he is cast as Romeo in his school's nontraditional representation of Romeo and Juliet. As he gains courage from his “found family” at an LGBTQ support group and grows increasingly comfortable playing Romeo, Dean’s longing for true acceptance also grows. Will coming out mean losing everything and everyone he loves? A thoughtful and inspiring story fans of Felix Ever After and Cemetery Boys will enjoy.
