Publisher Description

A Stonewall Honor Book * A Time Magazine Best YA Book of All Time

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.

When an anonymous student begins sending him transphobic messages—after publicly posting Felix’s deadname alongside images of him before he transitioned—Felix comes up with a plan for revenge. What he didn’t count on: his catfish scenario landing him in a quasi–love triangle....

But as he navigates his complicated feelings, Felix begins a journey of questioning and self-discovery that helps redefine his most important relationship: how he feels about himself.

Felix Ever After is an honest and layered story about identity, falling in love, and recognizing the love you deserve.

"Felix is attending an ultracompetitive arts summer program to have a better shot at a full scholarship to Brown when someone posts Felix’s dead name beside photos of him, pre-transition, in the school’s lobby. Felix’s plot to get revenge throws him onto the path of love and self-discovery." (Publishers Weekly, "An Anti-Racist Children's and YA Reading List")

Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes“This was a wonderful read. Felix was the kind of queer demiboy hero that so many young queer kids of color need to see. He was questioning and making mistakes and creating art and looking for love the way so many young people do. And no, don't come here #alllivesmatter because again, erasure (see second paragraph). Be mad at that okay? Thanks. Can I say Marisol needed refresher course in intersectionality? That girl worked my second to last nerve and was a total TERF to her heart. I liked Felix's dad who I saw was really trying and sometimes not succeeding yet didn't stop. His love was unconditional which is sadly not always the case for queer teens. Declan's grandfather was sweet.”
