Summary

Alecia Mueller, a conservative country girl, knows how her life is going to turn out. She's going to grow up, meet "the one," get married, and live in the country. When her best friend Sam comes out as a transgender man, she chooses personal loyalty and friendship over politics. But what if the boy that Sam is becoming is "the one?"

A Coming of Age Story for a Transgender

Sam was born with a brain that that told him that he wasn’t a girl. This is the story of his transition with the support of his best friend, Alecia. Great descriptions of LGBT people and the challenges they face every day. Great performance.

Great premise, but story drags

This story went into mind-numbing detail, though the basic storyline was a great one. The narrator had a lilting, nice voice, but her delivery was very wooden - almost robotic at points. All in all, I'm still glad I listened to the novel, but I wish it had been edited down by about half. The other option would have been to get into more detail about Sam's transition. The changes he goes through are almost an afterthought.

The Best Boy Ever Made

This book was ok. I did not like the introduction and it was slow going for a good part of the book. The narration could have been better. The overall love connection was very predictable early in the book.

Good book!!

A very good coming of age story that deals with the controversial topic of Transgender. I would definitely recommend the book. The plot is a little hokey but the message is still a good one. Not in love with the narrator but she did a decent enough job. over good book!
