“Powerful and empowering, with an optimistic message that we all need more of in our lives.” – Kate Bornstein, author of Gender Outlaw
“[Being Emily] feels incredibly honest, and there are moments of joy, anger, and sorrow, laced together in a way that will make you cry and laugh along with the characters. It doesn’t shy away from the hardship but it also doesn’t make the claim that this hard stuff is all a trans person’s life is ever.” – YA Pride
