And She Was by Jessica Verdi
"I really enjoyed reading this book. It gave some insight on the struggles go being transgender while also showing insight to those around them. It also allows the readers to see just how difficult it can be to keep a secret that large. One other thin" Read more of this review »

“That’s the point. This healthy-feeling time now just feels like a tease. Like I’m in this holding pattern, flying in smooth circles within sight of the airport, in super-comfortable first class. But I can’t enjoy the in-flight movie or free chocolate chip cookies because I know that before the airport is able to make room for us, the plane is going to run out of fuel, and we’re going to crash-land into a fiery, agonizing death.”
Jessica Verdi, My Life After Now

“Listen, I wanted to say, I don't need your judgment, okay? I have enough to deal with without you contributing, so can we just get on with this so I can get out of here?

But I couldn't form the words. Dr. Johnson viewed me as a child, and somehow, under his contemptuous gaze, I had regressed to one. I was frightened and shy, and it was all I could do to answer his questions and count the seconds until the end of the visit.”
Jessica Verdi, My Life After Now

“I felt entirely invisible and uncomfortably obvious all at the same time, sitting there in practically nothing in front of this stranger who was ignoring me.”
Jessica Verdi, My Life After Now
