I really enjoyed this MG/YA story of Sebastian, a seemingly genderfluid French prince, and Frances, the fashion designer who helps him live a hidden life as Lady Crystallia. It's pretty harrowing in places, especially when Sebastian/Crystallia is publicly outed and when Sebastian falls into self-loathing, but I loved Frances's complete acceptance of who Sebastian *is* even when she can't live with the choices Sebastian feels forced to make in order to secure even a little freedom for his/gender-neutral-pronoun identity. Outside of the painful parts, it's funny, sweet, charming, and the dresses are gorgeous. Very much recommended if the self-hate and outing doesn't push your buttons in a bad way.
