They say that whoever you are it's okay, you were born that way. Those words don't comfort Emily, because she was born Christopher and her insides know that her outsides are all wrong. They say that it gets better, be who are you and it'll be fine. For Emily, telling her parents who she really is means a therapist who insists Christopher is normal and Emily is sick. Telling her girlfriend means lectures about how God doesn't make that kind of mistake. Emily desperately wants high school in her small Minnesota town to get better. She wants to be the woman she knows is inside, but it's not until a substitute therapist and a girl named Natalie come into her life that she believes she has a chance of actually Being Emily. A story for anyone who has ever felt that the inside and outside don't match and no one else will understand ...

I would recommend this book for people that are transsexual. It is a very descriptive book. it explains life for a troubled teen that is transsexual. I really enjoyed this book. I would recommend it to anyone really who loves a good story about a teens life.

Chris describes the difficulties in revealing his true self... Emily. Born a boy, Emily begins to share with others in her life that she is actually a girl. While not brilliant literature, my understanding of the "T" in LGBT was dramatically enhanced. Emily's inner struggle along with her unique support system helps a reader begin to understand transsexuality. The characters are gripping and easy to relate to.
