Rose Travers is a teenage girl with a big secret. She is really a transgender boy. They have to tell their parents, sister, school friends and a whole host of other people about who they really are. Their parents, meanwhile, have to deal with the marriage break-up of their best friends of over 25 years, while her sister is an unknown quantity – will Violet speak up for her now-brother and defend him, or throw him to the wolves? Will Rose tell their very traditional grandmothers about their transition, and how will they react? Will anybody make a faux-pas navigating the minefield of a non-binary person’s pronouns, and how will Rose choose their new name?
