Lily and Dunkin

Review
Lily is a transgender 8th grader who is allowing more and more of her true self to be known. Dunkin, also an 8th grader, has bi-polar disease and is dealing with a family tragedy. Together they slowly form a bond and then a friendship. This book made me empathetic to both situations.
