Publisher's Summary

When the seventh child of the Peace family, named Perfect, turns eight, her mother, Emma Jean, tells her bewildered daughter, "You was born a boy. I made you a girl. But that ain't what you was supposed to be. So from now on, you gon' be a boy. It'll be a little strange at first, but you'll get used to it, and this'll be over after while."
From this point forward, his life becomes a bizarre kaleidoscope of events. Meanwhile, the Peace family is forced to question everything they thought they knew about gender, sexuality, unconditional love, and fulfillment.

What a great book!

When you listen to as many books as I do, the bar for what a great book keeps creeping higher and higher. For me a great book must have:
A good story that keeps your mind from drifting off and one that progress at a good pace
Well developed believable characters
Writing that engages the senses
Dialogue that is purposeful to the plot
Perhaps most importantly, a profound imprint on the reader that lingers with you after the book has ended.

This book was all those things for me. Great job Daniel Black!
