And She Was Reviews

  • Rachel

    As a LGBTQ ally, I appreciate this book and what it will do to promote understanding between cis and transgender people. And She Was is a well-paced, realistic YA/coming of age story and I loved every page of this heartbreaking and uplifting book. Wonderful read. Highly recommend.

  • Nichole

    there are few novels that captivate you and teach you something and this does both. please don't miss out on a powerful and important novel.

    What I Wanted: A book with a mother-daughter relationship that was a bit Gilmore Girls-is but instead of running away from rich parents because of teenage pregnancy, the Lorelai ran away because she came out as transgender and Grandpa and Grandma Gilmore couldn’t handle it. Also, some coffee would’ve helped too.

    What I Got: A book where the MC and her mother really have a nonexistent relationship and once the MC found out that her mother was transg

    People seem to think this book is bad because of the transphobia and constant deadnaming, but they probably didn't read the authors note. She wanted to make this book so cis people could understand trans people. She writes A LOT about family acceptance. While I did find the main character to be a little annoying, that was the point of writing the book. It's called character development, and it's supposed to happen to make the book realistic and the characters relatable. Over all, people just rea ...more

    And She Was is the type of book that is entertaining and informative. The story centers on a transgender woman, Mellie and her teenage daughter, Dara. It is full of diverse characters and gives the reader an opportunity to understand and identify with the characters and their experiences.

    I enjoyed the parts of the story that were from Mellie's point of view much more than the parts that were from Dara's point of view. I found Mellie's part of the story to be heartfelt and insightful. Unfortunat

    For the first half of the book, I hated it. The main character was insufferable and managed to fuck everything up. Writing was mediocre. Eventually, the writting picked up and Dara finally found a personality. Most of the characters are bland as hell, and only serve to fill stereotypes or diversity quotas (the lesbians, the conservative grandparents). I think this might be an okay book to give to someone that wanted a bit of a look into the life of someone that is dealing with a trans parent, bu ...more

  • Abbey Pasquence

    An engrossing and dramatic story of a Dara and her mother, Mellie, dealing with the fact that her mother is a trans woman. Very well researched so that Mellie's story never feels exploitative or voyeuristic.
