The masterful and dramatic final installment in the highly acclaimed Changers YA series pulls no punches.

“A Changer never returns to their childhood name and body; for adulthood, they choose one of the identities they’ve experienced serially during high school . . . The text is admirably anti-racist, anti-sexist, and pro-queer, the latter including a refreshingly mellow attitude about bisexuality . . . The suspense is high, the plot is irresistible, and contemporary cultural references overflow . . . Fast-paced and wonderfully, forcefully loud about privilege.” —Kirkus Reviews

“This book is one of the most powerful installments . . . A satisfying conclusion to a series that takes readers on a very unusual journey, filled with emotional highs and lows.” —School Library Journal XPress Reviews

When we left Kim Cruz in Changers Book Three, she’d just come out to her best friend. In Changers Book Four: Forever, Kim discovers that this is only one small part of understanding who she is and where she belongs. Soon enough, she changes again, into the body and social status of her dreams. What she does with her newfound power will come to haunt her. In this final installment of the provocative Changers series, our hero learns what it means to be the person everybody loves without actually being known at all; what it’s like to be given the benefit of the doubt when you don’t deserve it; and how easily opportunity comes when you look the part. Changers Book Four explores what it means to find yourself — even as your self keeps changing — and how in the end we become the person whose story we want to finish.

Praise For…

This is a bang-up ending to the series and could be read solo, but do yourself a favor and go through the whole journey with this Changer teen’s personas of Drew, Oryon, and Kim first!

Changers should appeal to a broad demographic. Teenagers, after all, are the world’s leading experts on trying on, and then promptly discarding, new identities.
