From Stonewall and Lambda Award–winning author Kacen Callender comes a revelatory YA novel about a transgender teen grappling with identity and self-discovery while falling in love for the first time.

Felix Love has never been in love—and, yes, he’s painfully aware of the irony. He desperately wants to know what it’s like and why it seems so easy for everyone but him to find someone. What’s worse is that, even though he is proud of his identity, Felix also secretly fears that he’s one marginalization too many—Black, queer, and transgender—to ever get his own happily-ever-after. ~Amazon

Felix Love is totally love! Not to start off on a super cheesy note, but GAH this book is totally sweet in exactly the way I needed this week. Take a hearty dash of romance, summer in New York, art school, and throw in a whole bunch of unexpected plot twists, and there we have Felix's happily ever after. And yet, what makes this book special isn't just its well thought out characters and storyline, it's the depth of the social issues that it tackles through these mediums. Felix is a transgendered boy attending a prestigious New York art school on scholarship from his talent, but when a classmate puts up a gallery of his old (pre-transition) photographs with his deadname his whole world is turned upside down. I was absolutely horrified reading the scene, because I really can't stand bullies, and this kind of behaviour is even worse when you turn it on a marginalized group, and the situation becomes even worse as some of Felix's classmates begin to voice their even more problematic opinions about him. Teenagers are absolutely horrible, even in this so-called more enlightened time, but they're no different than the equally bigoted adults also walking around in the world - with real power unfortunately to make legislation and really hurt people. I don't want to really get into the minute details of the story, but suffice to say that Callender has written a story which perfectly balances discussion around race/sexuality/gender with a gotta-read-it story. I'll sign off saying that I'm so glad that these kinds of stories are out there in the world, bringing love, hope, and acceptance to a wider audience, and with a quote that resonates: "No one else gets to define who I am. Only me." ( )

Forgot how I heard of this book exactly, but it's gotten a lot of press and I thought it would be a good read for LGBTQ+ History Month. Felix is a trans man of color who is also queer. He's in school, trying to navigate his way through dealing with a family who doesn't accept him (a mom who he hasn't spoken to and a dad who, while has done things like help pay for Felix's transition has also used Felix's deadname) to romance to harassment, transphobia and racism.

A fellow student posts Felix's pictures from before his transition while also using his deadname, leading Felix to hatch a plan to "catfish" the person in order to find out who they are, why they did it and to get revenge. Along the way, Felix ends up in a somewhat complicated love triangle and deals with friends drama, too.

I really wanted to like this book. Felix's journey was painful and emotional and probably not unlike journeys happening all around us. But he finds happiness in the end (without getting too spoiler-y) and that was nice. I also thought Felix's actual "voice" was strong as a character, even though, as many point out, Felix himself isn't very likeable.

There's a lot of criticism of this book that has support. The book seemed to be marketed as a happier story and I was not prepared for the transphobia, racism, etc. that came his way. Which is not to say it doesn't happen, but several other reviewers pointed out they wanted a story without all of that and it's not hard to understand why.

Felix isn't likeable. The catfishing at first seemed understandable but I got uncomfortable with how it led to the love triangle (from both the catfishing angle and how it led me to believe this was going to go in a direction I wasn't happy with). And while I thought Felix had been given a great "voice" I can understand why people thought he was too self-centered, too selfish, etc.

I also agree the ending seemed abrupt and perhaps, upon reflection, this was a book that tried to cram in too many things and didn't quite accomplish what it might have hoped for. It was still a good read in its own way, though, and I'll definitely consider reading other works by the author, too. So overall I'd say 2.5 is really my rating.

Library borrow for me and that was best. ( )

Talented artist Felix wants a lot of things - a loving relationship, a scholarship to Brown, his father to acknowledge him, and grandequeen69 to stop trolling him. As a Black, transgender, queer teen he struggles to fit in. But what if the person who needs to accept him most of all is himself? Felix Ever After is a raw, affecting novel about the power of being open and authentic. ( )
