M.G. Hennessey, Brie Spangler & Kristin Elizabeth Clark says
Tonight we’re pleased to host a trio of authors (all parents or allies of transgender children and families) with new books featuring the stories of transgender teens. M.G. Hennessey's book, The Other Boy, published last fall by HarperCollins, features the story of a star baseball player whose secret (that he was born a girl) is about to be revealed in his new school. Brie Spangler, author/illustrator is the author of Beast (Alfred A. Knopf), in which fifteen-year-old misfit Dylan, while attending a therapy group for self-harmers, meets Jamie, a beautiful and amazing person he doesn't know is transgender. Kristen Clark, the mother of an opening transgender child, is the author of Jess, Chunk, and the Road Trip to Infinity (Farrar, Straus and Giroux), in which Jess, a male-to-female transgender teen and her best friend, Chunk, take a road trip across country to attend Jess's father's wedding to her mother's former best friend. Both teens and adults will find much to admire in these books and families are encouraged to attend.
