About the book


Brought up as female for fifteen years, Jon can remember feeling different from other girls since he was only five years old.

But it will take years of depression, incessant bullying, self-harm and isolation before he discovers why.

When Jon eventually confides to his mother that he feels like a boy, Luisa commits herself unconditionally to helping her child.

For Jon, the changes that follow are his path to happiness. But for Luisa, this means coming to terms with the enormous loss of her daughter.
