OUT OF BLUE COMES GREEN
Kinkade wants what every other teenage boy wants: a girlfriend and a successful rock bandbut that's not as easy as it sounds.
After a killer school talent show performance in full masculine presentation, trans boy Kinkade is quickly knocked back down to earth when his crush rejects him, and the whole school sees him in the dress his mother forced him to wear for a family photo. So, when the new girl Madi assumes he is cis and asks him out, he accepts without correcting her.
After years of being ignored by his old crush and bullied by other boys, Kinkade just wants to convince Madi that he’s a regular guy’s guy. To impress her and finally win the approval of his peers, Kinkade agrees to his
best friend Libby’s suggestion that they enter a competition to become the band for prom despite his misgivings.
In between band practice, weightlifting, and dates, Kinkade accidentally becomes an animal shelter volunteer under an assumed name―and it’s there among the unconditional acceptance of dogs that he finally receives the affirmation he’s been longing for.
But it’s going to be harder than he thought to play the show, get the girl, and become the man he’s meant to be.
