At once a love letter and challenge to the traditional transgender memoir, Fierce Femmes and Notorious Liars is a playful, surrealist dance through queer coming of age.A haunted young girl (who happens to be a kung-fu expert and pathological liar) runs
away from an oppressive city, where the sky is always grey, in search of love and sisterhood -- and finds herself in a magical place known only as the Street of Miracles.
There, she is quickly adopted into a vigilante gang of glamorous warrior femmes called the Lipstick Lacerators, whose mission is to scour the Street of violent men and avenge murdered trans women everywhere. But when disaster strikes, can our intrepid heroine find the truth within herself in order to protect her new family and heal her broken heart?
Target age: 13 to 18
"Fierce Femmes and Notorious Liars seeks to shatter the traditional transgender memoir narrative and turn it on its head. The book is high-energy and full of exciting tension from the outset, and the writing keeps you glued to the page." -- Britni de la Cretaz, Teen Vogue
