Lucien is a trans teen living in the heart of downtown Toronto. He goes to an alternative school, he’s got two loving moms – everything should be perfect, right? So, why does he want to run?

Looking for a fresh start, Lucien packs his bags and heads to Vernon, BC to stay with previously unmet relatives. While the big move comes with a rough landing, Lucien manages to make some new friends, connect with the local music scene, and meet the mysterious Alder.

When things start to heat up with his new romance and get messy in his friend group, will the anxious Lucien make a break for it again? Or can he learn to stay put and speak his truth?

In a Heartbeat is a tender story of a trans teen searching for his place in the world. Order your copy today, or request it at your local bookseller/library.
