Golden Boy by Abigail Tarttelin giveaway

golden_boyMax Walker: blue-eyed boy or girl next door?
To the outside world, Max Walker is a golden boy: a loving son and brother, the perfect student, captain of the football team and every girl's dream boyfriend.
But Max was born intersex - neither fully boy nor fully girl. Now something terrible has happened to him, the consequences of which have left him questioning his true identity.
Can the people around him - his girlfriend, his classmates, his ambitious parents - accept him for who he is? Or will Max's secret life tear his world apart?


  • 'Golden Boy is terrific. A poignant, brave and important book. '  S.J.Watson, author of Before I Go to Sleep
  • 'A gripping read.  [Tarttelin] is a natural storyteller.' Matt Haig, Metro
