Synopsis:

Placed in a mental hospital at age fifteen after being diagnosed with Gender Identity Disorder, the author shares her harrowing ordeal in the hopes that other teenagers will not suffer as she did due to a lack of understanding of sexual orientation.


Review:

"A notable book. Scholinski is a psychiatric memoirist with a powerful voice and a mission: to debunk doctors who continue to diagnose gender identity disorders."

Kirkus, 09/01/1997

Review:

"What keeps Scholinski sane--and makes the book as entertaining as it is horribly informative--is her sense of irony and black humor about a medical system that can't seem to do anything right."

San Francisco Chronicle Book Review, 10/19/1997
