It help me deal with my prejudices through a really engaging story, read by a terrific narrator. This is a book that lots of young people should read and a lot of educators as well. I was forced to grapple with, and I am still grappling with what I would have done if I were any of the characters: amazingly complicated.

Coming from a transgender girl of 23, this book just captures the feelings and emotions I feel and have felt for so many years, so perfectly. It doesn't fit every trans persons story exactly, but I do think many people can still really connect to it. For me, having transitioned and had surgery, and living "stealth", it literally felt like Amanda could have been me had I come out a few years earlier than I did. This was one of the first times I've actually felt like the author was speaking to me. The audio performance was amazing. Samia captured who Amanda was, and throughout many parts you can feel her emotion come through as she sat behind that microphone narrating the book. Absolutely an incredible story and listen, I highly recommend. And I just want to say thank you to the author Meredith Russo for writing this. It really means a lot. Thank you.
