Review: What an inspiring and strong woman she is, she helped to pave a path and a way for all Transgender people out there to be themselves and to never stop being who they truly are.

Growing up being told you are someone you know you’re not must be impossible and so difficult, but she kept fighting for herself and found her ways to express herself and be herself and grew into her true self. Then she shared it with the world and became an icon to so many out there.

I loved this book, getting to read about who she was as she grew up and how hard her life was for so long, but it was nice to read how she grew and changed and overcame everything to get the opportunity to actually be herself.

I love this book series, the illustrations are always adorable, the stories are always inspiring and showcase so many amazing people. They are a great series fir younger children.
