Nothing Ever Happens Here
Sarah Hagger-Holt

14-year-old Izzy lives in a small town, goes to school and doesn’t think of her life as anything extraordinarily special or exciting. That all changes when her father comes out as a trans-woman. The story deals with Izzy’s feelings of uncertainty and fear. Will her parents divorce? Will her classmates at school gossip about her? Her family and friends help Izzy face her fears and stand up for what she believes in.

This novel can help promote discussions surrounding gender diversity and trans-rights and is suitable for young readers.
