A + E 4ever

Asher Machnik is a teenage boy cursed with a beautiful androgynous face. Guys punch him, girls slag him and by high school he's developed an intense fear of being touched. Art remains his only escape from an otherwise emotionally empty life. Eulalie Mason is the lonely, tough-talking dyke from school who befriends Ash. The only one to see and accept all of his sides as a loner, a fellow artist and a best friend, she's starting to wonder if ash is ever going to see all of her.... a + e 4EVER is a graphic novel set in that ambiguous crossroads where love and friendship, boy and girl, straight and gay meet. It goes where few books have ventured, into genderqueer life, where affections aren't black and white. A Stonewall Youth Book Award Honoree for its frank portrayal of queer, contemporary youth.

    A + E 4ever Reviews

  • Mir

    Intense, unhappy, honest and messy in a way I seldom see in fiction featuring teens.I see some reviewers complained that the art is not polished, but I thought this style contributed positively to the...

    When I think about this book, I don't particularly think about the plot. Yes, it's about two gender-nonconforming teens who become friends and consider more. And yes, I was completely enraptured readi...

  • Jun Nozaki

    Reading this book was like going back in time, to the time of awkward teenagers in high school, to the time of confusion, to the time of the cruelty of puberty. While I have to admit that my own slice...

  • Naz (Read Diverse Books)

    A + E 4ever is a story that explores the complexity of sexuality and sexual identity in a way that would have been eye-opening for me as a teenager. Most of the LGBTQ+ literature I read usually focus...

  • Nathan

    This book was amazing. I really loved it, all the way through. Eu and Ash were unbelievably real, dimensional, and flawed in all the right ways. I felt like they could be anybody. They could have been...
