Reviews

"Meadows is a superb scholar and storyteller and, with this work, makes a critical contribution to family and gender studies. Everyone should read this book."-- (12/01/2018)
"Invites readers -- and anyone genuinely interested in studying or understanding gender-nonconforming people -- to ask questions that reach beyond readily available vocabulary, arguing that that's the next right, respectful thing to do."--Bay Area Reporter (11/13/2018)
"Trans Kids is excellent work that combines compelling narratives with extensive ethnographic descriptions of parents' and children's experiences."--ForeWord
"Clearly, more information is urgently needed to counteract ignorance, and one hopes, accordingly, that this fine book will be enlightening."--Booklist
"[A] landmark study."--Public Books (02/05/2019)
"A vital and necessary read. . . . Beyond the daring of its title, this is a book whose depth and sensitivity pull you in throughout."-- (03/05/2019)
"Presents an important sociological snapshot of the experiences of parents and guardians of transgender and gender nonconforming children and youth. . . . The stories of individuals' interactions with the medical industry, parent-support groups, child-protection services, and the anxiety produced in these navigations provides valuable information for social and moral analysis."--Hypatia: A Journal of Feminist Philosophy
