The book could stand alone as an account of Beck's distinguished career in the military, but Warrior Princess has a bolder message to send to its readers: transgender people are people... and some of them are even our national heroes.
Beck is a natural protagonist...strong, hardworking, and deeply patriotic. Every reader can relate to her, whether it's her coming of age story, her decision to join the elite Navy SEALs, or even her coming to terms with her gender identity. And where Kristin's experiences differ from the readers, Speckhard subtly exercises her understanding of psychology and sociology to bridge the gap.
Whether a pacifist or a hawk, advocate or opponent of LGBT equality, Warrior Princess is a raw, honest, and surprisingly relatable read." OutServe Magazine
