Sentenced to life in a men’s prison for killing her former therapist in self-defense, a transgendered woman battles for 20 years for gender-affirming surgery. The memoir begins with the author realizing that she is a girl at age three, and culminates in a legal victory made possible by what can only be described as Grace in action. This beautiful memoir is not only an expose, but a story of hope.
