J had always felt different. He was certain that eventually everyone would understand who he really was: a boy mistakenly born as a girl. Yet as he grew up, his body began to betray him. Eventually J stopped praying to wake up as a real boy and started covering up his body. After being deserted by his best friend, J decides that it's time to be who he really is, no matter what the cost.
