Reviews

"Vibrantly imagined...a welcome mirror for gender-fluid teens."--Kirkus Reviews
"With a main character who truly deserves to be called unique, combined with heartbreak and triumphs that are universal, this unforgettable book made me laugh, and also cry: Garvin's powerful new voice rocks!"--Lissa Price, international bestselling author of Starters
"Riley Cavanaugh is a sharp, funny, powerful voice for those who haven't quite found theirs yet. Both highly entertaining and highly necessary, Symptoms is the kind of book that makes you a better human for having read it. I loved it."--Dahlia Adler, author of Under the Lights and Just Visiting
"A moving portrayal of what it means to be different, yet the same, all at once. Jeff Garvin has written a beautifully thoughtful book."--Renee Ahdieh, author of The Wrath and the Dawn
"An important introduction for readers who know little about gender fluidity and a welcome nod to those who may be experiencing similar feelings."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Riley is a smart, funny, sharp-eyed force"--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"One of the first YA books to deal with the complex issue of gender fluidity...Riley's emotional life and personal growth shed welcome light on a hitherto obscure subject."--Booklist (starred review)
