I keep forgetting to put up my post about Ryan Scott Kennedy’s F2M: The Boy Within. Ryan’s an FTM Australian/Kiwi fella (like me!) who cowrote the book with Hazel Edwards. It’s the story of punk rock dude discovering himself and negotiating transitioning with family, friends and the medical system. It’s so exciting to have a book aimed at young adults (and accessible across many ages) that tells one of our communities stories. I thoroughly enjoyed the book, it was funny, sweet, real, and allowed for multiple perspectives. I really enjoyed how the book allowed for characters in the book to take a while to adjust to Finn’s transition without being demonized, and I think this book would be a really helpful resource to give to people supporting trans friends and whanau… in fact, I think I’m gonna buy it for my mum to read 🙂
What I’ve been saying…
