f2m:the boy within Review

School-leaver Skye plays guitar in an all-female Chronic Cramps band. Joining the punk/indie scene is easier than FTM (female to male) transitioning: from Skye to Finn, from girl to transman. 'f2m;the boy within' was the first YA novel about transitioning co-written by an ftm. It has also inspired a comic graphic novel 'The Boy Within' which is currently being created by two transmen Ryan Kennedy & Sam Orchard. 'F2m;the boy within' will be included in the Australian National Library exhibition on significant YA novels in September 2019.

    Ford Street Publishing is certainly not tying itself down to just one genre for its YA readers. There's been Foz Meadows' "Solace and Grief" (vampires), George Ivanoff's "Gamer's Quest" (fantasy/SF/ga...

    Wow, I loved this book. It's so fantastic to see a book dealing with transgender issues, and, to a certain extent, gay/lesbian issues. This is what Luna by Julie Anne Peters could have been like, exce...

    Oh dear. On the one hand, I appreciated the subject matter of this novel; trans youth are often ignored in the face of other queer issues, and the stories most heard are of those who began to transiti...
