This Story is About STAR, an artist at heart with talents and dreams of singing, dancing, and acting. However, STAR doesn’t quite fit the mold and must make a choice: do what ve loves and be who ve wants to be, or hide away and risk unhappiness in exchange for fitting in. Ve is in a very lonely, hopeless place when Mx Magic, ve’s compassionate teacher, comes to the rescue with an inspiring message. This is a heart-warming story about self-love, self-expression, and acceptance that is perfect for children trying to work through the rigid social roles imposed them by a cis-heteronormative society. This book would also make a great educational resource for parents and teachers looking to better understand gender non-conforming children.
