Set Her Free

Harry Styles has known something is wrong with him for most of his life. He's wicked smart and really nice, but people don't hang out with him. He gets called 'gay' on a daily basis, although he doesn't know what that means until third grade. He gets called 'weak' when he plays sports, because he's not good at them. He spends too much time looking at the cheerleaders. But it's not because he wants them. He wants to be one of them.


1. Prologue

Harriet Styles was a trans-woman.

Go ahead. Laugh. She knows you want to.

Or you can curse her out.

Or beat her up.

She's used to all three options by now.

You see, trans-phobia was something that ran rampant in Harriet Styles' hometown, Holmes Chapel. Or really, anybody who was different than what they considered normal. Whoever strayed outside of the boundary lines was wicked. If you had a penis and talked, acted, or even appeared to be feminine, you were labeled a gross faggot, a sissy. If you had a pussy and acted as though you had a penis, you were a dyke, butch, or sometimes only a tomboy. If you ever actually dared to speak out against these clear lines, you were ridiculed mercilessly.

Harriet Styles knew all of this. Which is why she felt trapped.

Trapped in her own body.

Trapped in her own mind.

All she wanted was to be free. To be herself.

But when she finally came to be her real self, the only thing that happened was pain.

Pain for her family.

Pain for her town.

Pain for her friends.

And pain for her.
