book reviews and feedback from around the web

"...a poignant account of one woman's fight to be accepted for who she truly is.

"The main problem of growing up with Gender Dysphoria, aside from the body dysphoria itself is the social predicament. Essentially everyone expects the individual to be and act like a boy or girl, when inside they know they are a girl or boy. The battle in Becoming Julie is epic and we find Julie involved in the most ruggedly male of territories, notably the fire service - but nothing can keep this good girl down!"

"Julie got an unusual hand when the cards of life were dealt and society likes us all to look and behave in an orderly "normal" way. Through her book Julie expresses all the ways she is just like everybody else and details her struggle to conform to societal norms to keep everyone else happy - to be the person that everyone, even Julie wants her to be."
