This is a completely unique coming of age memoir. Meredith tracks her adolescences through a spectrum of identities: growing up as an albino boy in the Philippines and transitioning and growing into a trans journalist and activist as a trans woman. Meredith’s experiences are at the intersection of nearly every category of identity. It’s a remarkable read.
