My Brother's Name is Jessica by John Boyne

my brother's name is jessica

I really enjoyed this book (even though it's primarily aimed at a YA audience). I got an advance copy late last year, well before all the fuss and drama kicked off. The story is told from the perspective of YOUNG BOY (who isn't particularly 'woke'or aware of the ever increasing number of politically correct forms of address when referring to someone else) whose world falls apart when his older brother Jason makes a startling announcement. 

Sam Waver's life has always been pretty quiet. A bit of a loner, he struggles to make friends, and his busy parents often make him feel invisible. Luckily for Sam, his older brother, Jason, has always been there for him. Sam idolises Jason, who seems to have life sorted - he's kind, popular, amazing at football, and girls are falling over themselves to date him. But then one evening Jason calls his family together to tell them that he's been struggling with a secret for a long time.....

A funny and moving read, suitable for all ages.
