This book was transphobic trash. Honestly I could not finish it
This book was transphobic trash. Honestly I could not finish it because of how upsetting it is; if only you could see my annotations. The author continually misgenders her transgender sister and as far as I got, mostly complained about how hard it was for HERSELF rather than focus on her sister's struggles. It makes me sick people come away from this book misgendering trans women while exclaiming, "this book opened my eyes! I am so educated now" and continuing to utter the same transphobic crap as ever. Besides this, the writing sucked, to put it simply. In the end, if you're looking to become educated on trans people, read the newer autobiographies written by trans people today, not this.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I give this book a 2 thumbs up.
This book really opened my eyes to how it must be to live a lie for so many years. But that is just what he/she had to do in order to be accepted by the main stream. I really felt bad about what he had to go through to become a woman. His sister who is writing the book in my opinion should of thought more about what he was going through, then what she had to endure to accept him as a woman.Was this review helpful?
