9780310739319: Firstborn: A Novel (Blink)

Where does a firstborn girl fit in a world dominated by men?

When Tiadone was born, her parents had two choices: leave their daughter outside the community to die in the wilds, or raise her as male and force her to suppress all feminine traits. Now, as the first female living as male in her village, Tiadone must prove her father didn’t make a mistake by letting her live.

As her male initiation approaches, Tiadone knows every eye on the community is on her, and desperately wishes to belong and finally be accepted. But at every step, traditional feminine gifts and traits emerge, and the bird she's been twined with is seen as a sign of the devil.

Worse, as Tiadone completes her rites she finds she is drawn to her male best friend in ways that are very much in line with the female gender.

Confused and desperate, Tiadone tries to become what she must be while dealing with what she indeed has become: a young woman who may be able to stand up to her despotic rulers and uncover her real purpose in life.

“A fantasy that reads like a lost history tome and deftly examines issues of gender. An engrossing story with welcome depths” – Kirkus Reviews Starred Review

About the Author:

Lorie Ann Grover is the author of young adult novels including Hit, which Hypable calls “a powerful book about tragedy and recovery which shows you both sides of the story, for better or worse.” She has authored Loose Threads, a Booklist Top 10 Youth First Novel, and On Pointe, a Bank Street College Best Children's Book of the Year. As a literacy advocate, she is a co-founder of readergirlz, which was awarded the National Book Foundation’s Innovations in Reading Prize. 

 

From School Library Journal:

Gr 7 Up—Tiadone was born female, but her father declared her male because she was the firstborn and their community has always treated her that way. As she reaches puberty, she leaves to go on a year-long assignment as a border guard. Although she has always identified as male, the Creator seems to have other plans. Some of her female traits are developing anyway, and she must hide them from the others near her. Grover's world-building is flawless and enchanting. The issues that Tiadone must face are relevant for all adolescents who are learning to be true to themselves. Jorjeana Marie's narration is relaxed yet emotional during this rocky adventure. Whether listeners are looking for an adventure or fantasy, they will not be disappointed in this selection. This will make a great addition to a high school or public library collection.—Elizabeth L. Kenyon, Merrillville High School, IN
