This text is amazing. As stated on Transgender Warriors "this is the history book for the rest of us". Refreashing and important to have a text that records the realistic lives of those who don't fit into hetronoramtive gender categories.


Moving and Powerful

This book is a great read for anyone who has GLBT issues, or whoever has questioned their sexuality or gender in their lives. Feinberg is excellent at drawing upon her own experiences to portray a character who is very real. The narrator's voice is brutally honest and authentic. Some of the scenes in this book are a bit squeamish, in the sense that the violence portrayed against the main character is rough and explicit. I found this book to be similar to "She's Come Undone" by Wally Lamb in the sense that the character is one that I pity, not one that I feel changes for the better. I appreciate Feinberg's end goal in that life is complicated and not always sunshine and roses, and that the character remains a strong figure in my mind. I suppose that it has affected me to the point where the book succeeds: I continue thinking about the character, wishing for more.
