Recommendation: In the Image of Angels

Milo recommends…


This was one book where I didn’t have to try to cram myself into the stereotypical gender box in order to identify with the character I enjoyed most. Pronouns are not used at all when addressing Bailey, the main character. There are tons of bad romance novels, there are even a few gay and lesbian ones but there aren’t many about the relationships of individuals who live outside societal gender norms. Which is why this book rocks. This story follows the life of Bailey who is desperately trying to live beyond male or female, coming up against the backlash of societal norms, religion, and the federal government requiring the identity of male or female, while falling in and out of love. This is one genderforking fiction story you don’t want to miss out on.
