Uncovering Ray

Uncovering Ray - Edie Danford Wanted to read it because of the genderqueer main character, but gave up at 24%. The story wasn't interesting and the only thing that kept me reading was wanting to see if I like the way Ray's gender is portrayed. Well, I guess I'll never find out. So far it was only by guys harassing Ray for being trans, so, my hopes aren't that high anyway.

Also, I read some reviews both here and on amazon and most of the fans of this book seem to have no sensitivity for trans & nonbinary issues at all & I was appalled by most of them.

One good thing though: I identify a lot with Ray, who is depressed (as many reviews pointed out "for no reason" - duh, guess what depression means), has few friends and apparently didn't succeed in life the way Ray's family hoped Ray would.
