LONGLISTED FOR THE POLARI FIRST BOOK PRIZE

'Honest, raw, moving' CHRISTINE BURNS
'Radical vulnerability at its finest'
OWL FISHER
'Highly recommended' SAN FRANCISCO REVIEW OF BOOKS

This is the deeply personal and witty account of growing up as the kid who never fitted in. Transgender blogger Mia Violet reflects on her life and how at 26 she came to finally realise she was 'trans enough' to be transgender, after years of knowing she was different but without the language to understand why.

From bullying, heartache and a botched coming out attempt, through to counselling, Gender Identity Clinics and acceptance, Mia confronts the ins and outs of transitioning, using her charged personal narrative to explore the inaccuracies of trans representation and confront what the media has gotten wrong.

Deeply affecting, and narrated with warmth and honesty, this is an essential read for anyone who has had to fight to be themselves.

An honest, quirky and personal story that gives valuable insight into the life of trans people. In the midst of storm of misinformation of trans people, this book serves as one of many that tell the stories of trans people from an authentic and an engaging perspective.

“A memoir and self-help guide as much written for a trans audience as it is for a cis one”

I have previously read Mia's shorter writing in her blogs and online newspaper pieces, so I became aware of this book by Twitter.
I highly recommend her writing as not only does Mia recount her history of... More
