Girls, give YOURSELF a gift this Valentine’s Day and every day by purchasing a copy of Janet Mock’s debut book, Redefining Realness. Janet Mock sweetly lulls and fiercely incites. She shares her family relationships, navigation of gender, a specific generation-X and millennial cusp experience of Hawaiian and U.S. history, as well as the statistically often untold and violently obscured and suppressed story of girlhood for a young trans* girl of color. She shares with us her journeying and surviving. Janet Mock is steadfast. In her “Path to Womanhood, Identity, Love, and So Much More,” she shares her stories - like one about watching Sailor Moon in early mornings before school with her younger brothers, a childhood story about running through the yard in her Grandma’s mumu, and the lived realities of being a teenage sex worker. Put simply, Janet Mock is a girl’s girl, and if you are as well, then this is the book for you!

If words could sing, thus would be an orchestra. The direct style is "softened" by excellent visual descriptions of the world that the author wants us to visit. There is true courage and honesty, which is the point. You learn to feel realness for the characters (real ppl) and love, hate and want to know more about them...especially Janet. You feel her vulnerability and strength at same time. Amazing Book!

Janet Mock's life story of growing up and coming to terms with her identity, not just her gender, is powerful.

This is arguably the hardest book one could write about oneself. Mock writes this with grace and incredible insight into her experience of being trans. She writes that every trans person's history is unique, but I think in reading this a reader can get tremendous insight into what it is like for her to be trans that may suggest what it's like for anyone to be trans. It's a very revealing book, told with great courage and with nothing held back.
