Cemetery Boys
Cemetery Boys By Thomas, Aiden Book - 2020 | First edition.

Cemetery Boys is the breath of fresh air we need in YA literature. Yadriel does not find acceptance from everyone around him, he does face a lack of acceptance that leads him to take major risks to prove that he is a brujo, but along the way his ideas of what it takes to be a man change, and how far he “needs” to go to seek acceptance.
I read a lot of LGBT young adult literature, and many stories with trans protagonists seem to be written for a cisgender audience, including what I like to call the assault to acceptance storyline. Where the cis people around the trans person refuse to accept them until the trans person is assaulted. These storylines are traumatic, and not light fun reads for trans people.
Cemetery Boys is an enjoyable read for trans and cis audiences.
