Review

A New York Public Library Best Book for Teens, 2016

Rainbow Award Winner, 2016


“Her story is an important addition to the slender but growing body of transgender literature and belongs in every library.” —Booklist, starred review

"For readers looking for a candid introduction to some of the issues facing trans children and teens, this book is an excellent start." —Publishers Weekly

"The teen's successes and nearly limitless self-confidence and optimism will be reassuring for the family and friends of trans youth." —SLJ


Praise for the picture book I Am Jazz:
 
“Jazz is a sensitive and courageous young woman. Her story is inspiring and important to read. By sharing her experiences and view she has added to our understanding and compassion for the transgender experience.” —Barbara Walters
 
“Jazz [is] an eloquent spokesperson for transgender kids.” —Katie Couric
 
“I wish I had had a book like this when I was a kid struggling with gender identity questions. I found it deeply moving in its simplicity and honesty.” —Laverne Cox, acclaimed actress and transgender advocate
 
“A terrific and timely book that explains to kids what it means to be transgender and — more importantly — that reminds kids our similarities are much more important than our differences.” —New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult
 
“All young people — regardless of difference — deserve the things Jazz shares in her lovely book: a loving family, supportive friends, and the freedom to be their true selves. A beautifully illustrated and accessible primer on one trans girl's journey of living her truth.” —Janet MockNew York Times Bestselling author of Redefining Realness
 
I Am Jazz is honest, inspiring, and beautiful—but its greatest strength is it never apologizes for being different.” —New York Times bestselling author Brad Meltzer
