A beautiful book that clearly highlights the struggles of feeling like you don’t belong. I’d previously read Janet Mock’s account, but this story spoke to me more. Maybe it was the contrast between the twins, one who was comfortable in his skin and one who wasn’t. Maybe it was the way the author included data that just added to her storytelling. Maybe it was the story of the father-son relationship that never was, that transformed into the father-daughter relationship that was never expected. Maybe it was just Nicole herself, a fighter who always knew what she was supposed to be – the girl whose journey didn’t just transform her family, it transforms the reader as well.
