  • What Could Have Been: The book started as speculative fiction, but Oshiro's editor advised him to remove all those elements and just put it in a real world setting. He's been vague about what exactly this entailed, as he hopes to use them for another book.
  • Write Who You Know: Anyone familiar with Mark Oshiro's work on Mark Does Stuff won't be very surprised at the book's subject matter, as his first twenty or so years were a ridiculous Trauma Conga Line that included being outed against his will in high school with all its subsequent bullying, running away from home as a teenager after he couldn't stand living with his conservative adoptive parents anymore (ultimately forcing him to drop out of college despite a fantastic academic record), and suffering several cases of police brutality just because of his race.

How well does it match the trope?
