"Powerful and empowering, with an optimistic message that we all need more of in our lives. I'm thrilled to see this book is out in the world." - Kate Bornstein, author of Gender Outlaw and A Queer and Pleasant Danger
"... it's a wonderful read for any teen (or anyone else) dealing with gender issues or the question of non-conformity ... [Gold] does a fabulous job of explaining what it means to know in your heart that something's not right, that the body you were born with doesn't match the true person inside." -- Ellen Krug, Lavender Magazine
"It's rare to read a novel that's involving, tender, thought-provoking and informative. Rachel Gold does all this in 'Being Emily.'" - Twin Cities Pioneer Press
