A TRANSGENDER YOUNG ADULT BOOK
David McNeil is miserable. A high school freshman, he knows that he is transgender but is too frightened to do anything about it. His unhappiness and the total wrongness of his life churn inside of him until he can’t stand it … he steals a dress.
And gets caught.
Over the next year, he will slowly transition and begin living as the girl he should have been since birth. He must learn what it means to be a girl in today’s world, but also he must learn about the girlhood he’d missed. There is support from family and friends, but there are problems and dangers as well.
Follow one year in the life of a teen, from high school lockers to elegant Boston concerts to the snow at Lake Tahoe—from January as a boy, to January as a girl.
