Two Games ... Twenty Innings
And Also: Transparent: Love, Family, and Living The T With Transgender Teenagers is a touching, well-written work by Cris Beam, not transgender, but a lesbian who was in effect abandoned by her mother as a teenager. So, she felt drawn to trans teenagers, one in particular. You really feel for these teens and young adults, while learning a lot about the community overall ... including one who was sentenced hard time in jail. It suggests as well the complexities of gender and who we truly are. Thus, it is really about a lot more than the trans community, which is the sign of a good book overall.
