    That book sounds awesome! Society is trying to snatch up kids who are excentric and transgendering them. I also learn kids who tend to go through awkward times through puberty also get snatched up rather than just be allowed to be themselves! 😄😍😍😍 I gotta share this on Scotty Kilmer's RU-clip channel! 😂
