Reviews

". . . a success both through strong writing and the crackling feeling on the page that she genuinely loves the shit out of her trans family." --Xtra

"This sweet and positive account of a family facing obstacles and growing closer together is inspiring." --Publishers Weekly

"Love Lives Here is an emotionally raw, often funny book that leaves the reader wanting to be Amanda Jetté Knox's best friend. It's the story of how people tried to push her down, and will strike a chord with anyone who's ever been bullied. And that's a lot of us!" --Ottawa Sun

"I read Love Lives Here in one sitting, or more accurately in one day. There were several times I had to walk away to cry and collect myself, but inevitably I was pulled back in because I had to know what would happen next. Amanda tells a story about how to deeply love your family, but more importantly, she shows us how we all have to learn to love ourselves before we can fully show up for others. That's a lesson we should all learn." --Debi Jackson, parent and trans youth advocate

". . . an inspirational road map for others living through similar situations." --Advocate
