Loved It!

This book has been on my TBR for such a long time, I thought that it was about time that I read it (or listened to it in this case).
I haven't had a lot of experience with the LGBT community when it comes to literature, and I was very looking forward to adding another book to my growing list.
In this book we follow Amanda. Who was born Andrew. She knew from a young age that she was Amanda and eventually her parents - mainly her mum - knew she was too.
This book goes through the struggles of a teenage girl who has a secret, and has gone through such turmoil in her life that she doesn't want to let herself trust anyone. Amanda moves to a new town to live with her dad after immense bullying due to who she is and determined to not let the truth out and to keep to herself, she finds herself with a group of friends and even a boyfriend and life is looking up.
Until one day, her secret is out. Will the boy she loves still want her now that he knows who she is?
I absolutely adored this book from start to finish! I really felt for Amanda the whole way through, she was punished by bullies for being who she was and no one accepted her. I was worried for her the whole time she was in her new school with her new life, worried that someone or something was going to ruin it for her. This book just put me through so many emotions, some of the time I couldn't keep up. 
The only thing I would like to know is how it turns out between Amanda and Grant..does he accept her after all or do they go their separate ways? The book ended before this and I would love to know. I would hope that he did accept her for who she is and they lived happily ever after..but I guess I will never know!
