A high school girl's shocking discovery threatens to unravel the lives of those around her in David Roberts IV's riveting debut, Becoming Twigo.
A fifteen-year-old transfer student, who promptly earns the unflattering nickname "Twigo," struggles to adjust to life in a new school where money rules.
After a brutal confrontation with cheerleader Roxanne, Twigo stumbles across her enemy's cell phone-which reveals that Roxanne, despite having a boyfriend, is actually a lesbian.
Meanwhile, Twigo's burgeoning relationship with Sniper, a fellow student with a haunted past, faces an unexpected hurdle in the form of a vengeful ex-girlfriend.
As Roxanne continues tormenting her, Twigo finally reveals that she knows her secret. Faced with the truth, the stoic cheerleader breaks down, admitting a truth far more astonishing than Twigo could have imagined.
Confronted with this unexpected honesty, Twigo must reevaluate who she thinks she is, and who she wants to be.
