I love this book! It’s well written, unique, powerful, beautiful, and heartbreaking. It’s very rare that you see a book take on a subject that is so necessary and yet sadly, still so controversial in so many circles. This book takes on so much — a transgendered child, a family struggling with balancing the truth with maintaining privacy, the ripple effect of secrets, unconditional love of all kinds — and does them all justice. What a gift! What an important piece of work. I love the author’s note at the end letting us know that although it is based on a true story, there is a fine line between fiction and reality. Bravo! Thank you Laurie Frankel for this book.
