Synopsis:

At fifteen years old, Daphne Scholinski was committed to a mental institution and awarded the dubious diagnosis of "Gender Identity Disorder." She spent three years--and over a million dollars of insurance--"treating" the problem...with makeup lessons and instructions in how to walk like a girl. Daphne's story--which is, sadly, not that unusual--has already received attention from such shows as "20/20," "Dateline," "Today," and "Leeza." But her memoir, bound to become a classic, tells the story in a funny, ironic, unforgettable voice that "isn't all grim; Scholinski tells her story in beautifully evocative prose and mines her experiences for every last drop of ironic humor, determined to have the last laugh." (Time Out New York)


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
