Estranged teenage cousins Eli and Kat have recently met online and bonded over their queer identities, but they have a limited understanding of each other's very different realities. In Italy, soft-spoken Eli is trying to find a way to come out as trans to his conservative Roman Catholic family. In Canada, strong-headed Kat is desperate for connection to a culture and place she's never known.
Kat and her friend Hannah are the only ones who know that Eli is trans--not even his brother Matteo knows. And while her intentions are good, Kat's decision to crowdfund a flight for Eli to attend Toronto Pride unknowingly outs him to the public, setting off a chain of events that leave the cousins and their loved ones reeling.
Full of poetry, laughter, and big questions, this touching story paints a portrait of what it's like for young people wanting to reconcile what they've inherited with what feels right.
