About the Book

Gracefully Grayson is a story about a 12-year-old boy that has, for as long as he can remember, grappled with an internal battle that is enough to shatter anyone’s world: he believes he was born in the wrong body, and he was meant to be a girl. But this identity has been suppressed because of the death of his parents at age 4, his living with his dad’s brother, wife, and family and his isolation at school, which he has self-constructed since the second grade. Grayson begins to come out of his shell when he befriends the new girl, which inspires him to have the confidence to try out for the school’s play, “The Myth of Persephone.” It is during these auditions that he makes a decision that will, as the reader discovers, set him on a path that will change his life.
