Being Emily

12

 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 you are 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...

"Powerful and empowering, with an optimistic message that we all need more of in our lives. I'm thrilled to see this book is out in the world."—Kate Bornstein, author of Gender Outlaw and A Queer and Pleasant Danger

About the author

 Lederhosen. That's just one quirky subject in Rachel Gold's background, and not necessarily a subject you'd expect from a woman who spent seven years working as a reporter on LGBT issues for a Twin Cities newspaper. After branching out into publicity and then marketing, Rachel's life has taken some interesting turns, including winning a national marketing award for using, you guessed it, lederhosen in an ad.
