Trans Teen Survival Guide Book Review

The ‘Trans Teen Survival Guide’ by Owl and Fox Fisher is a very easy to read and informative book for anyone questioning their gender, knows they are trans, or knows someone who is. It is broken down into 20 chapters, each focusing on a different aspect of life as a trans person. It includes the more obvious things, (such as haircuts, hormones, coming out etc) but also some things many young people might not have thought about (such as dealing with the media).

There are several anecdotes from trans men, women and non-binary individuals interspersed throughout. Not all of their experiences have been negative, which may be encouraging to read. Also, the addition of non-binary identities means it could be useful for anyone on the trans spectrum.
