Breakfast or Suicide? By: Kelly The book The Shipping Mistake
Breakfast or Suicide?
The book The Shipping Mistake was an overall good book. A man named Fraser knew something was different about himself at the age of 5 but couldn’t really rap his finger around it. Throughout the book we see Fraser suddenly transform into Natasha. This process is not only difficult but some of his friends and family did not accept him as a woman.
The major message of this book was to show people to never give up until they are the person they want to be. It took a great deal of steps for Fraser to become Natasha like having several surgery's, dressing like a woman in public places, getting wigs and taking lots of hormones in order to become a woman. Even though it took a heap of money and time he is finally the person he wants to be which is Natasha. I liked how the book was an easy read but it still had so much information about his/her life. The author included a lot of emails from Fraser to all his co-workers about his transformation to Natasha which made me stay engaged in the text. At the end of the book Natasha Anne Mocke included entries of her own personal diary which was a very cool finish. I did not like some of the word choice in the book. There were some shocking and gross descriptions of her surgery and injections she was getting that I did not enjoy. People should read this book because not enough of the world knows about the transgender group. People who are transgender get bullied and made fun of all their life. 47% of the Transgender population in the United States try to commit suicide.
Overall, I would give this book four stars because of the interesting story and how much you learn from Natasha Anna Mocke's story. The book is an easy read but includes tons of information about his life from Fraser to Natasha.
