From the heart of an intersex teen, one who must ultimately choose male or female - family or true love - comes the story of a deeply emotional and perilous journey home. This is a young adult novel unlike any other - an authentic portrayal of the issues faced by a child growing up with a sexually ambiguous body.
Jameson can be like other boys after minor surgery and a few years on testosterone. Well, at least that's what his parents always say. But Jamie sees an elfin princess in the mirror, and male hormones would only ruin her pretty face. For him to become the man his parents expect, Jameson must leave behind the hopes and dreams of a little girl. But what is so wrong with Jamie's dreams that they can't be her life?

The story itself was very powerful. The book was recommended by a friend, and I wasn't totally sure what to expect. I was very glad I took her advice and read the book!
I appreciated Lisa Wiley's interpretation. She made me feel connected to the characters as though they were my friends and not just characters in a book, which really is one of the joys of reading! Her voice was engaging and easy to listen to. I will look for other books narrated by Lisa.
