Felix Ever After is a novel by Kacen Callender and follows a transgender teen named Felix who is on a journey of self-discovery and first love. Post-release, the novel received an incredible reception from readers and many have spoken out about how the novel was important to their own journeys of discovering who they are.
Felix Love has never been in love—and, yes, he’s painfully aware of the irony. He desperately wants to know what it’s like and why it seems so easy for everyone but him to find someone. What’s worse is that, even though he is proud of his identity, Felix also secretly fears that he’s one marginalization too many—Black, queer, and transgender—to ever get his own happily-ever-after. When an anonymous student begins sending him transphobic messages—after publicly posting Felix’s deadname alongside images of him before he transitioned—Felix comes up with a plan for revenge. What he didn’t count on: his catfish scenario landing him in a quasi–love triangle. But as he navigates his complicated feelings, Felix begins a journey of questioning and self-discovery that helps redefine his most important relationship: how he feels about himself.
The TV adaptation is being developed by Amazon Studios with Field Trip Productions after the latter acquired the rights to the book. Field Trip Productions was formed by Will Graham and Hailey Wierengo.
