    Symptoms of Being Human is a story about Riley, a gender fluid teen trying to navigate a new high school and deal with the pressures of being the child of a Congressman. Riley isn't out yet, and starts a blog as an outlet, hoping it will help with the anxiety and stress that is a daily occurrence. The blog becomes a huge success, and Riley seems to be doing well, until an anonymous reader online threatens to expose Riley's secret to the world. I cried so many times while I was reading this book. I cried because, even though I haven't had to deal with the same struggles as Riley, I found so much in Riley's story that I could sympathize with. I cried because of the horrible cruelty that unfortunately still exists in our world. I cried because of the amazing kindness that also exists, and works every day to fight against the cruelty. Riley's story felt so real and relatable. I felt like the characters were a part of my life and I found myself caring so much about their story and what was happening to them.

    Great title

    I really enjoyed the story. I had never heard of "gender fluid" before and was intrigued. I had also heard about the author Jeff Garvin. His writing style is very easy to follow and I was drawn into the story. Anyone who likes teen novels will enjoy this story
