Alex wants change. Massive change. More radical than you could imagine.

Her mother is not happy, in fact she's imploding. Her dad walked out. Alex has turned vegetarian, ditched one school, enrolled in another, thrown out her clothes. And created a new identity. An identity that changes her world.

And Alex - the other Alex - has a lot to say about it.

Alex As Well is a confronting and heartfelt story of adolescent experience - of questioning identity, discovering sexuality, navigating friendships and finding a place to belong. Alex is a strong, vulnerable, confident, shy and determined character, one you will never forget.

With the same tenderness and insight as YA stars such as John Green and David Levithan, Alyssa Brugman has crafted a knockout story about identity, sexuality and family that speaks effortlessly to a universal teen experience.

Alyssa Brugman was born in Rathmines in New South Wales in 1974. She has written several books for young adults including Finding Grace, which was shortlisted for the Printz Award, and Walking Naked, which was a CBCA honour book. She lives in the Hunter Valley with her partner and their children.

'A compassionate and moving account of a teenager's struggle with identity.' Jane McCredie, author of Making Girls and Boys

'Brugman's beautiful writing offers a startlingly accurate portrayal of teenage life and is a remarkable exploration of gender and sexuality. In typical Brugman, Alex as Well tackles its subject matter with fearless honest as well as with strong insight and a delightful sense of humour...Readers of authors such as John Green will devour this novel.' 4 stars Junior Bookseller & Publisher

'Confronting, thought-provoking and often surprisingly amusing, Alex as Well is an amazingly powerful story of a young woman in conflict as she struggles to establish her identity within her family, friendships, community and, most importantly, within herself.' Kids Book Review
