I loved this book! Listened to it all in one day while driving. It's funny in places, touching, and I cried a handful of times. Stories narrated by the author imo can go either way, but Ivan's accent, tone, and performance really added to the book for me. It felt genuine and personal.
It's also so uplifting to read about trans adults, AND trans adults who speak to their families. I spent the entire book either living vicariously through their wonderful life, or relating deeply to their discussion of gender, dysphoria, and navigating the world as a tomboy. I'd recommend this especially to trans young adults, anyone coming out later in life, and parents + friends of trans people looking to learn.

I get a bit cynical. The world swims in a soup of complicated ideas, thoughts and actions. Sometimes, I just crave simplicity even though I know that this is not possible. Coyote’s book touches on some of the complications of the world but in a way that pares things down. There are also pretty basic things in our world: love, compassion, family and community. This books celebrated these basics within the complications of being human. This book brought me to tears multiple times for the intense displays of kindness. Coyote’s words are beautiful. Their reading is beautiful. It is simply beautiful.
loved every second. I laughed, cried, felt touched deep inside my queer self. Totally beautiful.
So happy I got this book, have wanted ti read it for a while. Just tried Audible for the first time, love it, I'll be back!
