From School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up—A guide designed for teens who are interested in exploring gender. The authors present readers with steps to begin a "gender quest," giving the impression that developing one's identity and feeling comfortable with oneself is as easy as following a set of instructions. Through eight chapters, the writers cover gender identity, gender expression, family, school and work, friends and peers, dating and sex, multiple identities, and challenges. The definition and discussion of several terms are helpful for those unfamiliar with the subject as well as for those who are looking for ways to understand and accept their identities and expressions. Activities and exercises are provided in each chapter to help readers incorporate their discovery, exploration, and expression and reflect on the subjects discussed. The writing and layout are textbooklike, and the lack of illustrations might be a limitation for visual learners. The tone of the book is generally light but sometimes seems overly upbeat, considering the serious subject matter. VERDICT Recommended for collections seeking a "Gender 101" workbook for young adults.—Sujei Lugo, Boston Public Library, MA

But this book mostly wants to help trans youth 'figure out their gender' - something anyone reading the book has already thought about.
It's a classic case of 'lets talk about what the [cis] therapist finds interesting'.
I wasn't impressed.
I'm a transsexual woman who transitioned in 1986. I have trans youth in my life now. The frustrating part is that it's hard to find something better than this book.
