From the time she was two years old, Jazz knew that she had a girl's brain in a boy's body. She loved pink and dressing up as a mermaid and didn't feel like herself in boy's clothing. This confused her family, until they took her to a doctor who said that Jazz was transgender and that she was born that way. Jazz's story is based on her real-life experience and she tells it in a simple, clear way that will be appreciated by picture book readers, their parents, and teachers.

A beautifully illustrated and accessible primer on one trans girl's journey of living her truth."-Janet Mock, New York Times bestselling author of Redefining Realness

"I wish I had had a book like this when I was a kid struggling with gender identity questions. I found it deeply moving in its simplicity and honesty."-Laverne Cox, acclaimed actress and transgender advocate

"Jazz is a sensitive and courageous young woman. Her story is inspiring and important to read. By sharing her experiences and view she has added to our understanding and compassion for the transgender experience."-Barbara Walters

"A terrific and timely book that explains to kids what it means to be transgender and-more importantly-that reminds kids our similarities are much more important than our differences."-Jodi Picoult, New York Times bestselling author of The Storyteller and Between the Lines

"I Am Jazz is honest, inspiring, and beautiful-but its greatest strength is it never apologizes for being different."-Brad Meltzer, New York Times bestselling author of I Am Amelia Earhart
