To my readers,
I have waited fifteen years to write this story for you. Due to the current publishing market, I have decided to go the non-traditional route and offer my book directly to you. This story cannot sit in my computer any longer. It must be told. Forty-nine years ago, Dr. Martin Luther King had a dream that his children would be judged by the content of their character and not the color of their skin. Like many of you, I share the same dream. But I also believe our children should not be judged by their skin, period. Whether we wear the mask of a man or a woman, we all deserve to live without judgment. After watching my friend grow up as a girl, fight puberty and high school dances as a teenager, and nearly self-destruct until she realized her true male identity, I know there are many others out there who fight the same battle. In fact, just last week, I worried that a transgender male student of mine wouldn’t return after our class roster listed him by his legal female name. This story cannot sit alone any longer. It must be read, shared, and discussed.
