This book is a joy. I read it in one sitting; I couldn't put it down. I implore you and everyone you know, young and old to read this book. It's urgent. It's important. It promotes understanding and it's a beautiful read.

Jamie Rambeau first told their secret to their best friend Ash in year 4. "I'm not a girl or a boy Ash. Don't use 'he' or 'she' when you're talking about me. Neither of them sound right. They're not...my words."

Jamie was good until year 6 but they were about to find out that despite what they thought, not everyone else was happy with them. The gut punch was when they realised there was no place for them in secondary school. There was one school for boys and one for girls. But no place for Jamie.

As they guide us through the words to use, and educate us on life under the rainbow flag,  we see what it means for those who are non-binary. We see that it should be a joyous thing and that we should celebrate people discovering themselves. But it isn't. Jamie shares: "It doesn’t take anything away from you or make your life more difficult making space for me. It doesn’t mean you have to give up your seat."

As Jamie finds their true self and finds ways to celebrate who they are, they find their voice and start to make a real difference. With their trusty friends by their side every step of the way.

This book is a riot of rainbows, a celebration, an education, full of hope and heart and shows us that the world is full of possibilities if you have the courage.
