Description


"Fantastic."
--John Green
"A gender-fluid, John Hughes-style fantasy plus all the feels."
--Salon
"This is an excellent sequel....This installment raises the stakes, making the story not just about physical and emotional transformation, but about survival."
--School Library Journal
"Oryon's humor and insight will keep readers turning pages."
--Kirkus Reviews
"This series is addicting...as soon as I started reading I was immersed into the book, unable to put it down....The series is just getting better and better."
--I'd So Rather Be Reading
"I really enjoy these books....If you are looking for books--these are great."
--Yellow Porcupines
Praise for Changers Book One: Drew
"This is more than just a 'message' book about how we all need to be more understanding of each other. The imaginative premise is wrapped around a moving story about gender, identity, friendship, bravery, rebellion vs. conformity, and thinking outside the box."
--School Library Journal
"Changers should appeal to a broad demographic. Teenagers, after all, are the world's leading experts on trying on, and then promptly discarding, new identities."
--New York Times
"A thought-provoking exploration of identity, gender, and sexuality...an excellent read for any teens questioning their sense of self or gender."
--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Changers Book Two: Oryon in the four-part Changers Series for young adults finds our hero Ethan/Drew on the eve of her second metamorphosis--into Oryon, a skinny African American skater boy with more swagger than he knows what to do with. Enter a mess of trouble from the Changers Council, the closed-minded Abiders, the Radical Changers (RaChas), and his best friend Audrey--at least she was his best friend when Oryon was Drew--and now, it's complicated.
But that's life (and life, and life, and life) for Changers, an ancient race of humans who must live out each year of high school as a completely different person. Before next summer, Oryon will learn what it means to be truly loved, scared spitless, and at the center of a burgeoning national culture war. Most of all, he will learn again how much the eyes of the world try to shape you into what they see--and how only when you resist do you clearly begin to see yourself.
