Great insiders account that any inquisitive individual would enjoy. Any age could read this and gather more experience on the subject than reading a professional account. It will answer many of your "queeries" around the current gender discussion. Nice work Maia! ( )

That was so, so good. ( )

As a queer bibliophile i really connected with this book even though I am not gender queer. It was very interesting to see the parallels in our lives while they were so different. I feel like this book helped me understand more about myself while not specifically talking about my experiences all while being a very good book. It’s very well written and drawn and I absolutely loved it. ( )

I struggle to fully understand non-binary and genderqueer identification, but this book nudged me a little further towards comprehension. It is charming, honest, and relatable. There's nothing quite like having someone tell their own story, in their own words. I love the artwork, which is straightforward yet very expressive. Some pages are simply breathtaking. This book is an excellent use of the graphic novel / comix form. ( )

I absolutely devoured Maia Kobabe's story. Eir art is beautiful. Eir story is powerful. I had seen individual panels online and I am so thrilled to have finally read the book. ( )
