Smashwords book reviews by Paul Graves

Not your average chick-lit!
Take a journey into the mind of J, who is maybe a transgender person, but I doubt they would be blessed by the label, having suffered from labels all their life.
"Failure to thrive."
Neither J nor the other main characters seem to have thrived in their lives so far. But as the dust jacket says - wee how one week can change a person for a lifetime.
J is written as a flawed but understandable and ultimately likable person. Though some of the trajectory is close to heartbreaking (I skipped a chapter near the end, and revisited it once I finished the book) the narrative drew me inexorably along.
The real downside is that the book finishes! Having gone through a week with J and their friends I wanted to see if they finally did thrive ... but that's not really the point. It was sufficient to understand there was hope.
