A search for true love and self acceptance.
Annie Luka has always been home-schooled, but she's convinced her mother to let her attend public school for her graduating year. When it is learned that Annie Luka is actually Attila Luka; a beautiful cross-gender guy struggling with his identity, it tears a small group of friends apart. Only when they all reunite ten years later is the full extent of Attila's deception revealed, bringing some of the group closer together and pushing others further apart.
What transpires over the next few years after the reunion leaves Attila wondering if he'll ever find true love.
What readers are saying:
"As the story progressed I started to realize that the author chose to write about a serious topic in a very conflicted way. Many transgendered people struggle with body dysphoria and the answer to the eternal question of "who am I?"... Attila shows the angst that goes along with knowing that you don't fit into a predetermined role in life, that the people that you are attracted to can't love you the way you really are, and he struggles for years trying to find a way to live happily. Overall this story shows the struggle that members of our GLBTQ community go thru on a daily basis. It shows that sometimes life should just be fluidity in motion."
"I Loved loved loved this book. Attila really had a tough time in life but ended up where he should be. The message in that is very touching. I Loved reading about the group of friends and what they all went through. I really did not expect the end but I was so happy the way it ended. The people that deserved a happy ending got it. I would definitely recommend this book. I could not put it down. You won't be sorry."
"I dried my eyeballs crying, reading this book. I love Curtis with all his mental issues. Attila is a sensitive soul, but his slutty attitude is a bit overrated. One of the best books I've read. Well done Leigh Jarrett."
"Just finished the first three books in the Tekla Series. OMG, emotionally drained right now! Leigh Jarrett, don't ever stop writing!"
