This debut novel—about taking risks and facing danger, about love and art, and about growing up and coming out—will make its way straight into your heart.

But then Fig’s dad shows up at school, disoriented and desperately searching for Fig. Not only has the class not brought Fig closer to understanding him, but it has also brought social services to their door.
