Very well written, I found myself initially picturing the author as a male, but as the story progressed I imagined a female. It was a story that is relatable on the issues of self discovery. Inspirational. I didn't always love Dave/Donna's choices, but I deeply respect this individual.

I first read "Wrapped in Blue" a month into my transition -- months before hormone therapy and long before any surgery. I cried when I read it and I think I underlined half the book.

As an autogynephilic person with a general interest in sociology and sex and gender, and a specific interest in gender transgression and transsexualism, this autobiographical book was an enjoyable, and at times emotional, read.
