I am J by Cris Beam

I am J was an interesting read. The book starts with the main character J feeling as if he was meant to be born a boy. We follow J on a journey through speaking it out loud to himself and finally to his best friend Melissa and Mother. J learns a lot about himself and those he loves throughout the book. I have not read anything before on transgender teens but thought this was a wonderful insight into a world I am unfamiliar with. I think students would enjoy learning about another teens experience with transgender.
