As Nature Made Him: The Boy Who Was Raised as a Girl - John Colapinto

Day 24: A book you wish more people would have read


After a circumcision accident, a young boy, who had an identical twin brother, was raised as a girl. 


I was shocked and horrified. I raged. I threw the book across the room. I cried. Not just weepy tears, but great big ugly gulping snotty-nosed sobs.


I can't remember how I found this book in the first place, since it's not something I usually read. I might have been going through a non-fiction phase, or might have just been browsing my library's counter display. 


But I did find it, and I'm so glad I did.
