In 1966, on the edge of a puberty she doesn't want, a transgender girl hears a news story, and knows there are other people like her. Will she ever become her true self? A story of love, hope, friendship, growing up, and acceptance, with some comedy and terror thrown in.
Growing up transgender is difficult. In the 1960s no one talks about people who want to be a different gender. Jill tries to make sense of her self, her family, and the events swirling around her. Friends pull her to a degree of happiness and sanity, into peer helping and then psychology. As a man, she falls in love and develops a career as a school psychologist. She appears a successful man, until near death experiences remind her of what is important, and she embarks, at age 50, to become a woman outwardly, while continuing to work in schools.
Jill, expecting a difficult transition, is surprised by the support she receives from colleagues, parents, and students as she goes about her work in her true gender. She learns some surprising and uncomfortable truths about why her transition in particular had gone so well - truths beyond gender.
