"[This One Looks Like a Boy] has insight to offer readers, especially ones traveling a similar path."
"A pointed object lesson into why trans-authored work about transgender experiences remains critical."
—Quill & Quire
“Shenher brings us along on his journey to show readers how his gender transition is the transition of a lifetime and indeed of a life—education and growing up, friends and lovers, vocations and avocations, the family that raised him and the one he’s raising himself, his entire world.”
—Laurie Frankel, New York Times-bestselling author of This Is How It Always Is and Goodbye for Now

I heard about this book from a mutual friend - Megan in the book. So I ran out to get it.
I haven't been able to put it down. It gives me a whole new respect for L, and let's me into a vulnerable place that must've been very painful to reveal - let alone publish!
The end result, in my eyes, is a helping hand to others who may find themselves similarly conflicted. Like the day L helped me without a flicker of a doubt, even though we hadn't really connected in years, this book reveals a genuine, kind personality who really wants the world to be a better place.
I'd recommend this book to anyone - especially anyone in high school who feels the world just doesn't get them (aka almost all of us). I think it provides comfort that there are others - many others - who have been there, and found their way. Hats off!
