Mia's memoir is a good introduction into trans identity and issues. It would be a solid starting place for cis gender folks to learn the basics of what a developing trans identity really entails. It's also refreshing in how it isn't a sensationalized tale. There are a lot of elements in her self discovery that reflect my own experiences, which definitely abated some of my insecurities about my personal trans experience being wrong in some way.— From Phoebe
LONGLISTED FOR THE POLARI FIRST BOOK PRIZE 2019
This is the deeply personal and witty account of growing up as the kid who never fitted in. Transgender blogger Mia Violet reflects on her life and how at 26 she came to finally realise she was 'trans enough' to be transgender, after years of knowing she was different but without the language to understand why.
From bullying, heartache and a botched coming out attempt, through to counselling, Gender Identity Clinics and acceptance, Mia confronts the ins and outs of transitioning, using her charged personal narrative to explore the inaccuracies of trans representation and confront what the media has gotten wrong.
An essential read for anyone who has had to fight to be themselves.
