"Mom I Need to be a Girl" is a beautiful and compassionate read. It's the true story of a mother's understanding and support of her transsexual teenager. This book is an example of how to, to all parents who have who have a transgendered child of any age.

It's an inspiration and a breath of fresh air in a world with still too many prejudices towards the LGBT community.
