All her life, the female struggled against being born and living as a male. Gender was both prison and the prism through which her life was defined. Lacking an understanding of her condition, and being restricted by finance and circumstance, the protagonist grew up to be a confused and embittered man. But one day, "she" was granted a rare opportunity to perform a "do-over" of her life, by travelling back through the mists of time. Armed with advanced knowledge gained from the present time, our heroine and narrator finds her mind occupying "his" 14 yr-old body in the year 1972, within the confines of a private mental institution. Can she convince her therapists, not to mention her own family, to allow her to transition her body and begin living as her true self -- a girl?
