It has been so incredible to order this book.... thank you so much for its existence!!!
Beautiful, clear message that includes siblingsReviewed in the United States on September 16, 2013
This book helped my 7 and 9 year olds better understand themselves and each other, because one of my sons, like Nick, "feels like a girl inside." I love that Nick has supportive parents who tell him how much they love him, and whom Nick can turn to for support. When Nick's teacher scolds him for drawing a girl as his self portrait, his parents talk to the school, and afterwards the teacher is supportive. When Nick becomes Hope, Nick's little brother tells Hope that he misses his brother and worries that she doesn't love him now that she's a girl. Hope explains that she's always felt like a girl--that this isn't new--and that of course she still loves him. Both my children were visibly relieved after I read them this book, and they immediately started a meaningful conversation about how they both feel about themselves and each other (no, that doesn't happen every day!). Being transgender is something most adults don't even understand, but this book makes it clear and simple: some people are born in the wrong body, it's not their fault, and they deserve to have those around them love and support them.

She was thrilledReviewed in the United States on June 26, 2013
I bought this book for my 8 yr old transgender Granddaughter. She was so happy to get it she said, smiling, "She is just like me." it is important for a trans-child to feel that they are not alone. This book certainly helps. The story is clear and easy to understand for a child.
