This book gives a great insight on true emotions and points of view of transgender teen. The author made us understand the emotions and stress of the teenager as she delt with learning to be Emily. Even if you don't personally know a transgendered person, Emily's issues are not exclusive to the transgender population. The author gives great inisight to the struggles of growing up and becoming independent from parents but still needing the emotional support of family and friends.

Being transgender myself I found it easy to relate to the main character and her struggles, I couldn't stop reading this book.

Even though I knew a little bit about transgender people before reading it, I was delighted to learn new things through the eyes of the Emily. It had a good plot and just the right amount of romance to make it work. Rachel Gold made Emily realistic and I cried for her several times in the book. I felt as though the ending was a bit brief considering the length of the rest of the book, but overall it was a spectacular read.

I read this book in less than 24 hours--I was so engaged in the story plot and the concept. This is a great book for ANYONE --not just YA or the LGBT society. The book really gives one a sense of being who you are. I challenge anyone to read this and not feel the depth of the characters and their struggles. I hope this book becomes a staple for any teen to read to encourage a sense of self-worth and for any adult to appreciate their own journey of self-admiration.
