As a little boy, Sherlock never had felt at ease having had a wardrobe consisting of frilly and lacy girlishness.
He was a boy, not a girl, though nobody else seemed to realise it; at a young age, able to take no more of being expected to act like a young lady, Sherlock takes matters into his own hands and attempts to start to become the lad he's always known himself to be.

How will his family handle this shock? And, how will he handle it? You will learn this only by clicking the title, dear reader...
