As a recent teen herself, Katie Rain Hill's experience seems so fresh and relevant to society today. A great read by a powerful voice!

An engaging story about a kid who was in the body of a boy but felt like a girl her whole life. She transitions to dressing and living as a girl in high school in Oklahoma, with all the pain and bullying that entails. Reading her story helps bring understanding to an often misunderstood subject and creates empathy for those living with this dilemma.

The first time I heard about Katie Rain Hill was during one of her many interviews on television. She’s been interviewed for CNN, ABC’s 20/20, Tulsa World and many other media outlets. I haven’t read many memoirs, autobiographies or biographies in my lifetime, but I was curious and thrilled to get a chance to learn more about Katie’s story in her first book: Rethinking Normal.

If you haven’t heard of her, you’re probably wondering by now: what makes her so special? Well, she’s a transgender woman, which essentially means she was born male, but identifies as female.

In her book Rethinking Normal, Katie shares her life story—everything from childhood until now. She talks about her home life and school, falling in love, her transition and gender re-assignment surgery, and being a part of the LGBT community, taking an active part in bringing more awareness about being a transgender person.
