If you are looking for an engaging book that you could read in less then 24 hours, read Being Emily by Rachel Gold. This realistic fiction novel follows Emily, a girl who was unfortunately born as a boy, Chris. The book shows the challenges and hardships that transsexual people face. Being Emily is powerful, realistic, and shows readers how to learn to love themselves.
The best thing about Being Emily is how informative the author is. Prior to reading this novel, I barely had any knowledge about the topic and wasn’t aware of the thousands of Americans who are transexual. This book also shows the reader what it’s like to not feel comfortable in your own body, and how to learn to love yourself.
Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone over the age of 13 who wishes to be more informed about transexualism and transsexual people.
