I loved this books deals with teens on that are transgender. each chapter is a story/interview about the teens and the lives. I like how it went beyond the basic FTM and MTF, stories and included other ways of being trans.

I thought this book did a great job of presenting a diverse group of trans young people - various racial and socioeconomic backgrounds were featured, as well as a variety of gender identities and sexualities. I also appreciated the respect it showed for the privacy of the people who were interviewed and the way transition was presented as self-actualization rather than transformation or performance. It manages to be personal but not voyeuristic.

This book highlights the fact that "transgender" means something different to each person who identifies with the word. There are so many types of trans and this book does a great job telling the stories of teens all over the "spectrum" of trans identities.

Transgender issues require a greater spotlight. Unfortunately, this book gave a weak presentation. So much editing was needed. It appears the author took the teens conversations and put them on page verbatim. More cohesion of themes would have improved the message.

A valuable, and very readable, resource for anyone who wants to learn more about the real lives of transgender and genderqueer teens.

This book is long overdue. It is written and photographed with love and sensitivity about an important subject matter for teens, their families, their friends, and for all people who wish to understand this topic better. I congratulate the author for her inspirational work and her gift of candor and power.
