These days, it is practically impossible not to hear about some aspect of transgender life. Whether it is the bathroom issue in North Carolina, trans people in the military, or on television, trans life has become front and center after years of marginalization.


And kids are coming out as trans at younger and younger ages, which is a good thing for them.

If a library (or individual) could only have one book on the transgender experience/issues, this would probably be the one to have. It is incredibly comprehensive, even if it is focused primarily on youth issues and processes.

This is especially true for people coming at the topic from a faith tradition - the author is incredibly tolerant and even-handed. I left a faith in part because of LGBT rights issues (and in part because...science). He makes the coexistence seem more possible than I would

I really enjoyed this book. It was easy to read and think it covered a variety of perspectives, at least for a layperson. I would think it would be beneficial for anyone providing support for children and youth, including medical professionals, parents, educators, and other care givers.

The excerpts that were interspersed really gave it a personal feel and made the information more impactful, as well as providing natural breaks to the sections.

It's hard to imagine that treating people like peop

A fantastic book into looking into trans youth. It is easy to read and comprehend and interesting with the case studies thrown into to contextualize the text. Makes me wish I could go back in the time of my life and have a chance to come out as a youth- just in this generation though.

Overall an excellent read and a great resource to parents of trans youth and professionals who deal with trans youth.

Wonderful and important book for anyone, especially those who work with youth. Dr. Nealy's writing is clear, powerful, and helpful. I read this as part of an optional summer bookclub that my school district sponsored. I am so happy to have gained new insights, stories, and applied strategies I can use going forward to be a supportive advocate for all people. ...more
