Becoming Nicole by Amy Ellis Nutt

Becoming Nicole by Amy Ellis Nutt

A story about a transgender girl’s journey of truth, beauty and compassion, Becoming Nicole will resonate with anyone who’s ever raised a child, felt at odds with society’s conventions and norms, or had to embrace life when it plays out unexpectedly. It’s a story of standing up for your beliefs and yourself—and it will inspire all of us to do the same.

Another recommend book is She's Not There by Jennifer Finney Boylan. Both books are available in Chemeketa's bookstore for 30% off the list price.
