* I am so honoured to have gotten this on Net Galley*

I would like to preface this review by saying that I am not transgender, so please do not assign my opinion equal or higher weight than those that are since it is not my lived experience.

So this book makes me want to cry in the best way. I haven't cried yet but I think I might be getting very close. I chose this book because I am trying to be a better ally and, because of some physical disabilities, I cannot physically do supportive things lik

I think this is a book that will help a lot of people, and is an extremely educational resource for both trans kids and allies. The stuff that is talked about in here is not taught in school, but is so, so necessary. I can’t wait for other people to start reading this!

I'm previewing this book as a resource for my school's GSA, which I sponsor. I picked up an advance copy at the American Library Association conference, where one of the authors was signing. Kathryn Gonzales inscribed my copy with words of support for my students that made me weepy. This is an INDISPENSABLE and incredibly approachable resource for kids, teens, parents, teachers, nurses, admin, counselors, and others. The authors cover everything from the theoretical to the medical to the social ...more

I picked up this book at my local library in order to learn more about the Trans+ community, and man was I informed! I hope to use what I learned while reading this book to be a strong ally to the trans community and further my understanding of the daily struggles some people face. If you're personally dealing with the issues faced by the trans community or just trying to combat ignorance I highly recommend this book!

My librarian asked me to check this out to see if it's a good fit for the library, and I'll definitely be recommending it! While there were some formatting mistakes and missing information, I'm sure by the time this is published it will be a fantastic resource for trans teenagers! Each chapter has lots of useful information that is appropriate, accurate, and sensitive (along with first-hand personal accounts that make the book seem more relatable). The message is overall one of love, acceptance, ...more

Trans+ is an expansive guide for teens across the LGBTQIA+ spectrum, especially those who are trans and/or non-binary, and their allies. Everything you need to know about living your gender identity is explained in a clear, uncensored, and accessible text meant to arm you with knowledge and to help you feel loved. Topics include gender, the body, transitioning, sex and relationships, and so much more. For allies like me, there is no better resource available for educating yourself about how to b ...more

Very much targeted for youth book on gender identity and other teen issues. It was informative, but it covered A LOT which also means it brushed past too much and barely scratched surface.

The beginning was solid but then it covered many topics really quickly without as much explanation.

It's better than anything else out there that I've seen so far, and I'm looking forward to something that does even better.

I read the advanced reader copy (ARC), so there may have been a few changes to correct some of the oversights in the ARC.

Pros:

A number of trans and nonbinary teens shared own voice perspective throughout.

Lots of work to clarify language around every aspect of being trans, nonbinary, GNC etc, possible transition, etc.

Broke down what the Trans Narrative is and why it's bad.

ARC given by NetGalley for Honest Review

A well written, factual account on different experiences in the trans community. I loved learning the different terms for non-binary folk from around the world and love how it worked as a way to make us feel less lonely.
The illustrations are simple and fun and few in between (I would have loved to see more!) and aided the narrative in an informative way!

I have a small group of teens who are starting to explore gender and their own identities and I can't w

Clear, easy to understand. Provides directions to outside sources for further information. I think it would be a great place to start for the intended audience - I wish books like this were available when I was a kid.
