Really Mean Girls by M.C. Questgend (#bisexual #crossdressing #humiliation)

Had it not been for the fact that M.C. Questgend wrote it, I likely would have given Really Mean Girls a pass. As much as I might be intrigued by A Story about a Confused College Student, the cruelty and humiliation that the title suggests gives me pause.

Fortunately, while there are some uncomfortable moments here, cruel pranks that reminded me of darker days, M.C. uses them to make the ending shine that much brighter.

This is, in many ways, a coming out story. Justin is an outsider, struggling to fit in with a new school and a new community, and feeling entirely overwhelmed by it. Those emotional elements are exceptionally well done, with his vulnerability really drawing the reader in and making them care about the story. His gender uncertainties, and the associated curiosities, are not driving forces in his unhappiness, but they do come to be instrumental in creating a chance for happiness.

This is a hard story to talk about without spoilers, but suffice to say there are ups and downs, high points and lows, and swings from cruel humiliation to sweet encouragement. There are also double crosses and hidden agendas, so do not get too comfortable.

I love how M.C. captures the pleasures of dressing, and the comfort of realizing a feminine role or persona. Despite - or, perhaps, because of - the Really Mean Girls, this feels like a real story, with a genuine transformation for a young person coming to terms with their gender and sexuality. It is a bit hard to read at times, only because I felt so much for him, but a fantastic story.
Born in 1971, M.C. Questgend traveled the country with his parents as a military brat. Settling in Texas where he was first introduced to alternative lifestyles, he was able to finish high school and continue his new "hobby" in college. After college, he and "she" returned to start a family, but the strain of his "secret" was too much for his now ex-wife. Married a second time was not the answer, so M.C. has transferred the stress to the pen and keyboard. Writing erotic stories - some loosely based on his and "her" life as well as stories involving aspects of the LGBT community, a community and lifestyle he has come to privately embrace. M.C. Questgend is a pen name used to protect his privacy and anonymity. The intent was to write stories that entertain, inspire and motivate - which are as much sensual and heartwarming as they are sexual and explicit.
