A groundbreaking story about a teenage girl who discovers she's intersex . . . and what happens when her secret is revealed to the entire school. Incredibly compelling and sensitively told, None of the Above is a thought-provoking novel that explores what it means to be a boy, a girl, or something in between. What if everything you knew about yourself changed in an instant? When Kristin Lattimer is voted homecoming queen, it seems like another piece of her ideal life has fallen into place. She's a champion hurdler with a full scholarship to college and she's madly in love with her boyfriend. In fact, she's decided that she's ready to take things to the next level with him. But Kristin's first time isn't the perfect moment she's planned-something is very wrong. A visit to the doctor reveals the truth: Kristin is intersex, which means that though she outwardly looks like a girl, she has male chromosomes, not to mention boy "parts." Dealing with her body is difficult enough, but when her diagnosis is leaked to the whole school, Kristin's entire identity is thrown into question. As her world unravels, can she come to terms with her new self?… (mere)

As a straight, white, cisgender female, I cannot speak with any authority about the "authenticity" of this story, but I found it complex and interesting and heartbreaking. I hope more YA novels deal with transgender, genderqueer, or intersex teens to generate conversation and questions, as this has done. I'm very glad I read this book. ( )

This is why I read--to learn about others and other perspectives. I learned so much reading this book. :) ( )

This particular book was on my to-read list for a long time before I actually read it; school mostly got in the way, and then I forgot about it until I wrote an article about gender non-conforming individuals for The Nerdy Book Club (which will be posted on December 3rd). This might be one of the more important books that I've read recently, mostly because of one thing: it features an intersex individual.

Kristin Lattimer was just voted homecoming queen, and it finally feels like her life is going in the direction that she wants it to. The night of the dance, she feels that she's ready to take it to the next step with her boyfriend--but the moment isn't close to what she wanted it to be. Her experience brings her to the doctor, where she learns she is intersex, meaning that though she looks like a girl, she has male chromosomes and some male features. When her identity is outed to the school, Kristin questions her entire identity. Will she be able to continue on the path she was on before, even with everyone knowing the truth?

Aside from the fact that the plot of this novel is a little high school drama-esque, I think everyone should read this book. Intersex individuals are often left out of conversations discussing LGBTQ individuals, so most people are very unfamiliar with the identity. Though at times it leans a little more on the medical side, this book is important for teens who possibly find themselves in a similar situation to Kristin and could help them to explain to others exactly what being intersex means.

I will say that even though I felt bad for the humiliation that Kristin has to endure, at times, she can be a little annoying and whiny. There were a few points in the book where I just wanted to yell "Get over it! You're just making things more difficult for yourself!" It fit the drama-esque tone of the plot, though.

Overall, despite the flaws in plot, this book is important and shouldn't be left off high school shelves. ( )

None of the Above by I. W. Gregorio which is about a beautiful and popular 18 year old girl who finds out she has AIS, androgen insensitivity syndrome. It's not literature but is a good novel about gender. The girl also happens to run track, so there's a discussion Caster Semenya. All the "bathroom bill" people think sex is simple and is the same as gender - you're either male or female, that's it. This is a gentle way of explaining some of the variations in life and how people see themselves. I just found the author's page, she describes the book as Middlesex meets Mean Girls. http://www.iwgregorio.com/ ( )

Loved this book so much! Such an important story for anyone to read. It's such a heartbreaking story and yet uplifting at the same time. I definitely felt for the main character and often found myself wondering how I would react if it were me. ( )
