Translated from the Dutch.
"Like most teenagers in the 90s, Jet is obsessed with Kurt Cobain, which helps them get through boarding at the international school their parents have sent them to in the Netherlands. Jet is very shy, and fitting in poses enough challenges as is. New feelings are starting to emerge as Jet and best friend Sasha turn their attention away from their beloved grunge idols to real guys, and the pressures of being in a lawless, chaotic school start to take their toll. But something is wrong. Jet slowly begins to realise that they may be more of a boy than a girl. But is that possible? And who do they talk to about these feelings when there's no internet around to guide them? Discover how Jet deals with the questions that come from being a teenager and how to grow into the person you were meant to be, in this intimate, exploratory, coming-of-gender graphic novel from new talent Joris Bas Backer."--Provided by publisher.
