This is a wonderfully written book about a husband and wife that adopt identical twin boys only to discover that one identifies as female. While examining the issues and contraversies from all sides, this is "compassionate journalism" at its best and the account of the family as they evolve from their initial confusion to a determination to protect their daughter and help her through her transition is moving. This could be a wonderful roadmap for families facing similar issues or inspiration for any parent (or sibling) who loves a child that does not conform to society's norms.
