Noteworthy; Riley Redgate

NoteworthyNoteworthy by Riley Redgate
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Incredibly conflicted about this book. On the one hand, it says some interesting things about elite schools and their traditions, as well as their commitment to diversity (not just racial, but socioeconomic). On the other, it presents crossdressing as almost a lark, along with the questions about sexuality and gender identity. The meaty stuff around Jordan's identity in almost every area is dismissed relatively quickly, doing readers and the character a disservice. Before putting this on your shelves, ask someone involved in the non-binary/LGBTQ community for their opinion.
