About the Author

Jes and CIn Wibowo are Chinese Indonesian twins born in Jakarta. As Third Culture Kids, they spent their early childhood years moving back and forth between the US and Indonesia. The two both graduated with a BFA and eventually an MFA in sequential arts from Savannah College of Art and Design. They're currently based in Jakarta, eating comfort food and being perpetually culture-shocked wherever they go.

"[A] heartwarming story whose protagonist finds understanding with friends, family, and a broader community." -- Horn Book Magazine

"A fresh, empathetic tale of a transmasculine moon-boy's journey toward understanding one's space and the space that's sometimes necessary to give others.
