Helped me understand some things I was confused about. Kudos to Arin Andrews for telling his story very openly, and to his family for accepting and helping. Arin surely has helped MANY teenagers and their families and friends!
As the Uncle of a transgender step-niece, I found this book very helpful in understanding the development of trans self-awareness and the steps (and alternatives) in the process of transition. This autobiography concludes with a well organized and up-to-date list of books, movies, and web sites on transgender being.
This was an interesting read. I will say though that once the gender transformation got started, I was a little confused with the pronoun use. Most of Arin's friends are also transgender, but when we (as the reader) are introduced to them, they are male, but when we "meet" them again, they are beginning their transition and would like to be referred to as she/her. If you are able to keep up, you will enjoy the book.
This book takes you through the transition not only from the person transitioning but their community as well. It's written in reality not through rose colored glasses. This book will help the general public gain understanding into a very controversial topic.
