Confessions of a Teenage Drag King (Lorimer Real Love) (Paperback)

Confessions of a Teenage Drag King (Lorimer Real Love) By Markus Harwood-Jones Cover Image


Seventeen-year-old Lauren is trying to navigate the tricky waters of teen romance. From high school to the drag show and back, Lauren must keep up their two personas--Ren, a drag king, and Lauri, a typical student--and come to terms with their feelings both for mixed-race student Clover and their own identity as an LGBTQ+ teen. A realistic but lighthearted exploration of gender and identity, this story is full of colorful, authentic characters, making it a fun and topical read for today's teen readers.
