Becoming who you are is a journey, and all journeys start somewhere.

In a collection of stories from across the spectrum of real-life experience, nine members of the trans community share their inspirational childhood stories. These are tales of questioning, affirming, transitioning, and growing up; courageous, gripping accounts from musicians, actors, teachers, scientists, forest rangers, and activists of how they overcame their unique challenges to become who they truly are.

Featuring work by Hazel Newlevant, Lilah Sturges, Cynthia Yuan Cheng, Kameron White, Sunmi, and many more!

Target age: 8 to 12
