A rich, broad collection. Some of it's aged poorly, some of it feels exceptionally prescient. Not quite my gender(s) for the most part, but definitely some good folks in the general neighborhood. It's good to know your neighbors, everyone.
I started listing out favorite pieces but it got long enough that it stopped feeling entirely useful as an endeavor, which is a pretty positive note.

Not exactly what it says on the tin, but good all the same.

In this book, Coyote recounts some of their most memorable experiences as a youngster, teenager, young adult. The focus is on their trans-experience, but they also talk about moments common to all of us: growing up in a family with all its ups and downs. This is what makes Coyote's book so endearing: while there are scenes that a cis-gendered person could never understand (notably bathrooms and pronouns), there are others that are all too familiar. Coyote also alternates between pain, joy and moments of pure grace: it is sometimes disheartening to read about prejudice but also so uplifting to come across kindness, consideration and respect.
My favourite scene: the gender reveal party which is Coyote displaying their humour at its best.
A heartwarming, heartbreaking, instructive read.

Sooooo damnnnnnn gooooood! Very grateful to have picked this up at the library tent at Pride, otherwise it would have languished on my to-read list for a lot longer.

As with any book of essays, some are better than others. A few random favorites (and these are mindblowingly good!): Amy Fox, Amber Dawn, Chandra Mayor. Jeanne Cordova's was probably the most disappointing and frustrating: for some reason, she thought it would be a good idea to make a linear scale on which to organize all the gender terms she knew.

That's basically the end of the review. I have really intense, personal feelings about a lot of these essays, which is not really review-fodder. But damn I appreciated finding this book. You might, too.
