Odd Girl Out
Kehani Thompson has never belonged anywhere. She craves a story, a meaning and a place in this world but as a foster girl, left as a tiny baby sixteen years ago in the alcove of a pharmacy, she feels aimless and disconnected, shunted from one placement to the next. A new family seems just like every other temporary arrangement until Kehani reluctantly begins a friendship with Allie, a young person struggling to align her identity with her gender as she navigates her way through the transition. Odd Girl Out is a powerful look at tolerance and acceptance with threads of mystery, drama, romance and humour woven in for colour.
