At the age of seventeen Teraina, then Terry, first discovered she was really a woman. For the next fifty years she lived in total denial, until in 2007, something stirred inside her.

    This is a true story that I found so moving, enlightening and powerful. I have raved about it for weeks since I read it; my friends have had no choice but to listen to me go on and on about this awesome story. But why did it affect me so? It’s not that I had anything in common with this brave woman but because once I read her story I felt deeply educated on the subject of transgender and also inspired by her ability to tell her story with total and utter truth.

    This book is absolutely worth the read and will not let you down as both entertaining and enlightening, I rarely find a story like this that ticks those two boxes but when I do I love to talk about it. We read to both know we are not alone and to learn something new about ourselves and our fellow species. Thank you,Teraina, for your courage to share your amazing story. If I could give you a courage award I would!
