Summary

LONGLISTED FOR THE POLARI FIRST BOOK PRIZE 2019

'Honest, raw, moving' - Christine Burns

'Radical vulnerability at its finest' - Owl Fisher

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.

Deeply affecting, and narrated with warmth and honesty, this is an essential read for anyone who has had to fight to be themselves.
