Fascinating, once i started reading i could not put the book down. This would make a wonderful film.

This is a fast moving autobiography,so well written and captive from start to finish. I cried,I laughed then I cried again.
Well worth a read for any one who is interested in the Why question and also for anyone going through gender doubts in their life
I've just finished reading this book, I have to say it's one of the best autobiographies that I've ever read. Lisa sounds amazing and her life journey is incredible, if ever this is turned into a film, I shall be first in the queue to see it - brilliant
An extremely readable, very interesting book following Dave’s journey to becoming Lisa. Lisa’s determination to become her authentic self despite many adversities and obstacles is inspiring, as is her mission to educate people to understand transgender issues. I will definitely be recommending this book to my friends. I wish Lisa all the best.
Very good read couldn’t put your book down. Definitely worth a read and will be recommending it to everyone. Xx
I am just an ordinary woman, i was Dave previously but after many years of hiding myself from the world, i blossomed.
I worked for many years in retail, while coming to terms with who i am, and now i stand proud and work hard to help others to be themselves. My joy is seeing their joy and my drive is knowing people have more knowledge after hearing my story.
