Love Spell, by Mia Kerick
A lovely off-the-mainstream-radar novel about a gender fluid protagonist with one of the most distinctive personalities in YA lit. Chance is a bit too narcissistic for my tastes and his constant abuse of the English language can get wearisome, but he's a bright and engaging character and it's hard not to get hooked. Plus, since he is so stuck on himself, he's fairly non-threatening. And Kerick does a great job of making this a funny book, even while tackling serious subjects like gender identity and homophobia.
