I Am J by Cris Beam

JLittle, Brown, 2011.

Transgender – High School

Seventeen-year-old J feels trapped in his female body, and trapped in his life as his parent’s daughter. Without much of a plan, other than to get on testosterone, J runs away, only to discover that getting T is a more involved process than he thought.

With the support of new friends, a new high school, and a safer place to stay, J begins making the journey that will carry him into manhood. Well-written, with good character development, this is an essential title for transgender teens.
