Felix Ever After
Kacen Callender

Named after happiness itself, Felix hasn’t found his happily ever after yet… let alone been in love. How come everyone else makes it look so effortless? He worries that being a black transgender young man could keep him from finding love and make him a target. This fear is confirmed when he receives transphobic messages by a student who publicly posted pictures of him pre-transition. What Felix didn’t expect in his plan for revenge was catching feelings…

This story opens up about a journey of self-love that leads to realizing how worthy of love you are. Rich in emotions, the novel navigates themes like bullying, gender identity and feelings of insecurity, all important to discuss in the classroom.
