Parker Marie Molloy has provided a view into the lives of all transgender people. While details vary from person to person, the central issues of the emotional pain and the hurt caused by others are clearly in evidence in her book. The book spans the interval from the first hints of an internal dissonance between the sex she was assigned at birth and the eventual self-discovery of who she really was and the steps she took to live her life as it was meant to be lived.

The writing style is crisp and easy to read. For those on a similar journey, the book will have content that is eerily familiar. For everyone else, it provides understanding and appreciation of what we endure.

I, personally, would have preferred that the book was longer and could have provided more details about personal experiences, but I am more than grateful to have learned what Parker Marie Molloy has so successfully dealt with in her life.

Parker Molloy's story is hard to read in places, because it is so painful and being an empathetic person, that made it tough. But her strength, courage to live as her authentic self, and honesty, makes the story so well worth the read! I applaud you, Parker, for dealing with all that you have - and believe your story will end up helping many others have the courage to be their authentic selves as well.

I have to say that I'm struggling with this one. She's too young and to recently transitioned to have had much of a story yet. There are better books on this subject. This is not bad it's just not compelling and I've read and enjoyed many books on this subject.

Parker is a wonderful, beautiful person with an interesting story to tell. Aspects and parts of that story come through in this book.

However the book (as other reviewers have said) is short: I started it on the train this morning and finished it by late morning (and then only by taking a few minutes here and there to read it while at work).

The story, especially early on, seems to feel rushed and sometimes disjointed: from cafe to marketing without mention of graduating? It feels to me like there are parts of her story missing and parts of her journey that many would love to hear or hear more about: coming out to her brother, how coming out affected her relationship, coming out to the in-laws, her successes as a freelance journalist, for example.

One very positive aspect of the story is that it shows that while aspects of the trans* narrative are shared, they are not the same: we don't all know we are trans* from a young age.

Certainly worth a read if you know her as a journalist and writer first and want to get to know the person.

3.5/5 - I'd give another 1/2 star if it were a little less rushed and/or jumpy and certainly another 1 star if it were longer.
