Publisher's Summary

Lydia McIntosh left her old life behind when she said good-bye to Prairie Town, North Carolina, and started over halfway across the country with her beloved Gran, away from her family, away from everyone who knew the person she once was and from the identity she never quite wanted in the first place. When her grandmother passes away, she returns home, and while she intends to stay only for the funeral, her grandmother has other plans - from the grave. Her will states that Lydia must remain in Prairie Town for six months in order to give her family and her old town a chance to get to know the new her, the real her.
Lydia has had years to adjust to long hair, summer dresses, and nail polish, but she understands her family will need time to get reacquainted with a daughter they've never known and a sister they've missed terribly. Anticipating the worst, as she always has, Lydia's feelings about her old town begin to change when she meets her brother's best friend, Callum. Callum is kind and more accepting than she could have ever imagined, and she's falling for him.
When her 180 days are over, will she be able to say good-bye to the family she's missed so much? Will she survive her mother's endless intolerance? Can she really leave the man who acknowledges her past and still wants her?
A note from the author: This is a story about a transgender girl and her journey to acceptance and love when she returns to her hometown. Within this book you will be introduced to characters who color outside the lines, and that's just how they like it. I implore you to give them a chance because we are all beautiful and unique in our own ways, and we all deserve love and happiness.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

<br/>It’s the first book I ever listened to with a transgender person in it. This story is about a woman who was born in a man’s body and decided to fix it. The obstacles of trying to gain acceptance from others, especially family, and one of the most important people, her mom.

Fantastic Read

I have so many thoughts about this book but one in particular that comes to mind is life changing. No matter how you identify in your life this book is very relatable .This story needs to be seen ,from anyone in the Trans community and parents of Trans people to avrage people that have no clue what goes on in a Trans persons life . I quickly fell in love with the wonderful characters and the amazing mixture of hilarious , charming and sweet stories that this book provides. A+++ to both the author and the narrator.
