But when she meets sweet, easygoing Grant, Amanda can’t help but start to let him into her life. As they spend more time together, she realizes just how much she is losing by guarding her heart.

      This book was very eye opening so, that's probably why I liked it so much. In the begging the story line is quite hard to follow and it may be seen as boring, however as the story goes on the book becomes more and more interesting. In my opinion it was a very important and unique read that everyone of us should have a look at. This book shows us the struggle that is linked with being in the body that doesn't belong to who we are inside and acceptance of who we are.

        This was the first book I read dealing with the issue of being transgender. I really liked it. The main character deals with a lot of changes, including his/her gender, which affects his relationships. It opened my eyes to what it must be like to make that type of change in life and how it affects everything else.
