9 posts | 12 read | 4 to read
The heartbreaking portrait of a large, rural southern family's attempt to grapple with their mother's desperate decision to make her newborn son into the daughter she will never have When the seventh child of the Peace family, named Perfect, turns eight, her mother Emma Jean tells her bewildered daughter, "You was born a boy. I made you a girl. But that ain't what you was supposed to be. So, from now on, you gon' be a boy. It'll be a little strange at first, but you'll get used to it, and this'll be over after while." From this point forward, his life becomes a bizarre kaleidoscope of events. Meanwhile, the Peace family is forced to question everything they thought they knew about gender, sexuality, unconditional love, and fulfillment.

I keep fighting voices in my mind that say I‘m not enough
Every single lie that tells me I will never measure up
Am I more than just the sum of every high and every low?
Remind me once again just who I am, because I need to know (ooh oh)

This verse could be printed on the back of this book.

It is a winter mix outside, therefore no church. Instead, we have minecraft for the kids, coffee and a book for mom, and dad is making eggs. #sundayinside

It amazes me that we can look at someone and judge them on bad behavior, yet if your parent does the same the love is still there. This is a topic that has been on my mind, even before reading this book.
