Young Ms. Jennings has created a body of work, including her life, of which to be extremely proud. Precocious almost to a fault, she has forged and followed a bigger life than most people four times her current age (which is fifteen.) This book is well written and edited, both traditionally speaking as well as with sound engineering. Informative, spirited and vivid enough to draw out memories of my own from parallel ages in my (non-transgender) life, listening to this book was similar to hanging out with one of my own extremely candid nieces. I definitely recommend listening to this book. One note, Jazz does speak a little bit quickly, but you can always change the speed on the meter while listening, so it's not truly a problem. Other great reads along the same lines are "Raising my Rainbow" and "Raising Ryland."
Word to Jazz, if you're reading this ... Everyone who is as intensely self-aware as you are experiences some degree of an existential crisis manifesting in some way or another. Just remember that your ripple, your legacy already is love.

What made the experience of listening to Being Jazz the most enjoyable?
Hearing the story from the mouth of the author and the person who truly experienced all these things in her life was probably the greatest and most powerful part of the audiobook. You really hear her emotions in her voice and it adds so much to the book.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Jazz, obviously. The book was entirely about her and her life.
Which character – as performed by Jazz Jennings – was your favorite?
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I did listen to it all in one sitting, so yes.

what an incredible story about a brave Trans woman...
never give up until you are happy
truly a remarkable journey Jazz has had from the joy to the sad. You will get drawn in to this book regardless of gender or thoughts, everyone should listen to this as this very brave young lady tells her own story in her own words. I'm proud of jazz and myself for being a human being who dose not judge others.
brilliant thank you Jazz.......
