Reviews

"How to Be a Girl exemplifies the true meaning of unconditional love. In this book, Marlo learns that her 'son' is actually a transgender girl, and, terrified at first, shows what it looks like to find acceptance and how transformative and uplifting that can be. Capturing the complexity of a mother's journey to understand her daughter, this book is universally relatable to any parent who is struggling to adapt and embrace who their child truly is as opposed to who the parent thought they were. As transgender children are often misunderstood, How to Be a Girl is an invaluable tool to providing the support and empathy they need. Marlo's tender reflection and courageous love is an inspiration that will help others to their own awakening."--Jazz Jennings
