Gr 9 Up–Rayne and Gonzales have created a detailed, easy-to-read guide to gender identity written for young people who may be questioning their own identity. The book goes beyond definitions and tackles issues that will impact every trans person including coming out, transitioning, relationships, and sex. The authors dive into topics that readers might not yet be thinking about but will greatly affect their futures such as reproduction, parenthood, and the legal ramifications of transitioning. The authors are direct with their audience. All discussions of sex and genitalia are straightforward and thorough. Included in the text are contributions by trans individuals regarding the different topics. While this book is geared toward trans teens, it also has value for teens who wish to learn more about the subject.
VERDICT This work is a mostly inclusive collection that relays gender identity information. Gonzales and Rayne treat their trans readers with respect and offer information in a down-to-earth and relatable way
