Kalinowski asks him out and doesn't appear to be jokingThe only problem is well Jude doesn't actually knowAnton can see how this will play out Jude is a nice guy and nic. 45 starsYA transgender sweet romanceThis book begins with 15 year old Anton s first day at a new school Bullying forced him out of his old one and he s very happy to make a fresh start where people will know him just as a boy He realizes immediately that his new school is not uite like his old one as he s welcomed right away into a new circle of friends including Jude Oh Jude Jude s the too nice boy with the big smile The boy who s always been straight Anton and Jude become closer friends and then all of a sudden Jude is asking Anton out on a date The story follows their developing romance through first dates and other fumbling firsts But the closer they become the pressure Anton feels to be completely honest with Jude One of the themes in this book is labels How important labels are but yet how everyone is so much than just what their label is Anton is transgender but he s also so much than that This is also I think about how people might share the same label but experience things differently This is Anton s experience of being a transgender boy I loved seeing the world from the perspective of a transgender boy navigating high school and first love Anton s story felt very authentic to me including his family life He has a hugely supportive mom and aunt His dad however is a much different story He refuses to recognize Anton as transgender and won t call him anything but Natasha In fact his parent s marriage had fallen apart soon after Anton s transition to a boy This felt very real to me I actually feel like I learned a lot about being transgender from this book but the great thing about the author s style is that it never seems preachy or didactic The romance was so very cute I adored Jude well he s freaking adorable and was so happy that he fell for Anton It was a romance that was on the sweet side But these are 15 year old boys they think about sex a lot and they do become intimate This felt very realistic for their ages although it was done off page which IMO was appropriate to the story I d really recommend this to anyone who enjoys YA romance and who d love to read a story from the perspective of a transgender MC

E guys finish last And Anton is transgender and transgender people don't get happy endings If he tells Jude it might destroy everythingAnd if Jude tells anyone else it wi. The actual rating is 45 stars I was a bit bumped at first when I realize there are no actual spies with guns missions and secret ops I m an idiot who picks books from their tbr without checking why it s on tbr in the first place don t judge I got over it uickly tho the book is really wonderful and after reading it I understand what spy stuff refers to and it s a good book titleSo Spy Stuff is well crafted contemporary book about British 15 year old transgender boy Anton and his settling in a new school meeting people etc He s a wonderful character usually I m not a big fan of 15 year olds but I started to care about him and his friends really fast and there was not going backKudos to romantic plotline it was well paced and realistic I totally can imagine teens actually doingsaying things that happened in the booksI m a total fan of positive family relations in books with teenager protagonist Anton s mum auntie his nieces and two cats were all adorable Anton s dad was an arse mildly speaking But he was mostly off screen cos why give a hateful arsehole a screen time right I liked that the book didn t focus on him he s not worth itAs a cisgender person I m in no way capable of saying anything about transgenderism and how it was portrayed here but the book is written by transgender author so it s ownvoiceI d like to mention that the book isn t focusing on coming out narrative I find it harmful that media forces people teens especially to come out and presents its as a highest pain or some shit like that Too many books are written about coming out I m not saying there shouldn t be any books like that but we have uite a lot already imo Spy Stuff repeatedly states that a decision to come out is a personal choice and only said person should make this decision The book has breaking typical tropes for a story with LGBT protagonist thing also there is no miscommunication between the couple bless this book and the authorAll in all Spy Stuff is really wonderful well paced contemporary The book is a total page turner the writing is simple but addictive It was a very enjoyable read in every way and I definitely recommend to read the book

    35 stars Jude was a bit too perfect to be true and in part the same goes for the rest of their friends but I’d like to think that I’m just too cynical and that some teenagers these days are really that accepting and mature while still being completely obnoxious teenagersRounding up because of that and the fact that Matthew J Metzger can apparently make even me enjoy reading a YA book
