Reviews

"A warm and open-hearted story about the perilousness and momentousness of navigating your gender and sexuality. Yes, it's dangerous to be your authentic self, but, as Jules and Jack find out, the prize is worth the risk." -- Naomi Kanakia, author of We Are Totally Normal

"James Sie writes with a keen observation of human behavior and rich, breathtaking details that make his characters leap to life. All Kinds of Other is a fresh--and needed--perspective on identity: the things we protect, what we reveal and how we love. I am in awe of this book; it was hard to put down." -- Maulik Pancholy, author of The Best at It

"A touching, romantic, and rewarding read." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Sie's splendid novel is no stranger to surprises and suspense, which keep the pages turning, but it's the fully realized, multidimensional characters that are the story's real attraction. Both Jules and Jack are wonderfully appealing characters who will capture readers' hearts, and watching their personal development and that of their relationship are what really capture and hold readers' attention... A superb addition to the growing body of transgender literature." -- Booklist (starred review)

"Told in alternating points of view, this realistic romance revolves around two "new kids" who explore the bounds of their identities... Recommended." -- School Library Journal

"[A] sharply written YA debut...a gripping story." -- Publishers Weekly

"Tender and vulnerable, All Kinds of Other is the perfect read for anyone who's scared of being their authentic self and needs that little ray of hope to show them that being yourself is always worth the risk." -- The Nerd Daily

"A bittersweet tale of resilient love and indefatigable pride." -- Bay Area Reporter
