My Ladybird Story: The growing pains of a Transgender
by Magus Tor 

John Bird has never fit in. He can’t be the all American boy his dad wants him to be, he’s bullied at school and he can’t bear to look at himself in the mirror. While most boys his age are playing sports and kissing girls, John can only find comfort in the secret he keeps hidden away in a box in his room… 

When feisty Aureus crashes into his life, John starts the long process of realizing that it’s what is inside us that counts and that true friends love us, no matter what our secrets are. It’s time John learns to embrace the school taunt, “Ladybird” and grow into the person he is meant to be.
