Charles Noles is away from home for the very first time in his life and all he wants to do is have a date for the upcoming off-campus party. Try as he might, he can’t get beyond the women at his school seeing him as just a friend. After striking out three times in his latest attempt at landing a date he tries one final audacious plan in order to prove that he isn’t meant to be just friends with a girl.
In a stroke of daring, the young freshman attempts to prove that he shouldn’t be seen as “just one of the girls” by showing the three girls who rejected just how horrible he would be as a woman. By donning a blonde wig and black leather miniskirt he ventures to prove them wrong only to have his plan backfire in his face.
“He was supposed to be trying to get into women’s panties, but he never thought that meant that he would be wearing a pair.”
A transgender fiction story only the way that Katie Leone can pull it off. What appears to be the run of the mill, any excuse to get a man in panties story, turns out to be a deep look at life and gender and the way people adjust the way they act around people because they think that is what is expected of them even though that is not who they truly are.
This coming of age story is about a boy who discovers that he is not what the world has come to expect and not even what he has tried to convince himself of for the last fifteen years. Lighthearted and poignant, a quick read that will have you asking yourself questions about your own life and your place in the world.
