I felt so bad for Amanda and the way she was treated her whole life. It started with her parents, teachers and classmates. All because she didn't fit society's ideal of what a boy should dress like, act like and be like. Andrew was always Amanda on the inside. Not only did she have that to deal with but she also felt responsible for her parent's divorce. I know this was fictional story but it was based on the author's own personal experience and I'm glad she got to write these down to let people that don't know much about the subject understand it a little more.
