“Transition? Everyone goes through one kind of transition or another. We go through transitions every day. Except mine is maybe a little more extreme." - Mariah
"Being trans is not the next step to being gay. They are similar in that they are both breaking gender rules." - Cameron
"When people say I look male or female, it messes up my head. - Nat
"My family was okay with me being gay, but trans was a different issue for them. I think a lot of it was because they had no experience with it." - Luke

I bought a copy for myself, but after reading it I feel energized enough to buy a hardcover and start the first LGBTQ library at the high school where I work. Books that stay true to the experiences of young people must be made readily available to all youth and the adults that love them!
