'Inspiring and heart-wrenching' Paloma Faith

'Love Rhyannon. Love this book' Grace Dent

The remarkable transgender memoir you won't stop hearing about. Rhyannon Styles will do for transgender what Matt Haig did for mental health. Elle columnist Rhyannon Styles tells her unforgettable life story in THE NEW GIRL, reflecting on her past and charting her incredible journey from male to female. A raw, frank and utterly moving celebration of life.

Imagine feeling lost in your own body. Imagine spending years living a lie, denying what makes you 'you'. This was Ryan's reality. He had to choose: die as a man or live as a woman.

In 2012, Ryan chose Rhyannon. At the age of thirty she began her transition, taking the first steps on the long road to her true self.

Rhyannon holds nothing back in THE NEW GIRL, a heartbreakingly honest telling of her life. Through her catastrophic lows and incredible highs, she paints a glorious technicolour picture of what it's like to be transgender. From cabaret drag acts, brushes with celebrity and Parisian clown school, to struggles with addiction and crippling depression, Rhyannon's story is like nothing you've read before.

Narrated with searing honesty, humour and poignancy, THE NEW GIRL is a powerful book about being true to ourselves, for anyone who's ever felt a little lost.

MEDIA REVIEWS
I watched Rhyannon Styles begin as the most inspiring and heart-wrenching cocoon I ever saw and now she is a glorious butterfly -- Paloma Faith
Love Rhyannon. Love this book. Everything you've ever wondered about transition, cocooned in an epic tale of fleeing suburbia and big city fabulousness -- Grace Dent
I loved this book - Rhyannon doesn't just shine a light on this subject, she sets off a bloody fireworks display -- Cherry Healey
I am changed for having read this - congratulations, Rhyannon, on a bold life that inspires and lifts - the world needed this truth -- Laura Jane Williams, author and blogger
A story that will make you smile and sob in equal measure, and challenge everything you thought you knew about gender, sex, and fashion. Once read, never forgotten -- Rebecca Root
A wonderful asset to our community -- Caroline Tula, Trans icon, model and Bond girl
Proud to be holding this book ... The best and worst of times in a wonderful memoir -- Lorraine Candy, Sunday Times
Rhyannon is such a great ambassador for the trans community. She writes with such class while also keeping it super real. I've got a book coming out later this year and all I'm saying is I'm glad my book isn't a memoir, because I'd hate to have to compete with this -- Charlie Craggs
Rhyannon Styles journey of transition is fraught with the unique issues of her generation. Honest and unflinching, she walks the tightrope of uncertainty with confidence in the unknowing. A modern Artemis in the queer wilderness, midwifing her own becoming -- Penny Arcade
A deeply honest and candid memoir ... In a beautifully moving account of her life, Rhyannon left us captured until the very last page * Marie Claire South Africa *
