Tears in the Water Margherita Scialla
Tears in the Water is one of the books I read for the Trans Rights Readathon and I really enjoyed it. The book takes place in a college that prepares young adults for playing in professional sports. The main character, Alex, swims – along with their best friend. The guy they fall for plays volleyball.
I loved the various representations across the friend group: transgender, pansexual, non-binary, lesbian, aromantic and more.
There are various content and trigger warnings in the front of the book which I really appreciated.
Alex is someone I could relate to, even without the same questions about gender. I struggle with anxiety and depression and I’m not straight.
The book ends with the idea that there might be a sequel and I would definitely read one!
