Ron Bancroft comes out as a transgender man at nineteen. His parents reject him. His girlfriend rejects him. Feeling trapped and miserable, Ron decides to leave Harvard and travel west to work on a Wyoming ranch to prove to his parents, his ex, and himself that he can live unequivocally as a man. As he embarks on this journey of independence, Ron must deal with the constant fear and anxiety of being discovered as a trans man as he enters a world more dangerous than he ever imagined. Alex Myer's Continental Divide is a touching and personal coming-of-age novel that follows Ron's struggles to forge his identity, despite the dangers he faces in a new and uninviting world. Myers is the author of Revolutionary, "a remarkable novel" (The New York Times), about America's first female solider.
