Book Synopsis
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 events swirling around her. Friends pull her to a degree of happiness and sanity, into peer helping and psychology. She falls in love with a woman and develops a career as a school psychologist. She appears to be 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.

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