Book Description

Growing up transgender is difficult. In the 1960s no one talks about people who want to be a different gender. Jill tries to make sense of her self, her family, and the events swirling around her. Friends pull her to a degree of happiness and sanity, into peer helping and then psychology. As a man, she falls in love and develops a career as a school psychologist. She appears a successful man, until near death experiences remind her of what is important, and she embarks, at age 50, to become a woman outwardly, while continuing to work in schools.

Jill, expecting a difficult transition, is surprised by the support she receives from colleagues, parents, and students as she goes about her work in her true gender. She learns some surprising and uncomfortable truths about why her transition in particular had gone so well - truths beyond gender.

I liked it in the end because of the similarities Jill's life has with my own, I could relate to much of her experience. The only thing that I disliked about it was the rather haphazard approach taken early on concrning her childhood and teenage years,

It made an interesting read of a transitioning during a time when we have struggled to be accepted. Could relate to a lot of issues described . Stuck with it but it never seemed to go anywhere.

Of al the trans autobiographies I've read (and I've read a few!) Jill's story most closely matches my own experiences - even down to her childhood interests! I strongly recommend it.
