Description

Jamie was born with a testis, an ovary, and a pixie face. He can be a boy after minor surgery and a few years on testosterone. Well, that's what his parents always say, but he sees an elfin princess in the mirror. To become the man his parents expect, Jamie must leave behind a little girl's hopes and dreams. At sixteen, the four-foot-eleven soprano goes from home school to a boys dorm at college. The elfin princess can live in the books Jameson reads and nobody has to find out he isn t like other boys. When a medical student tells Jamie that he should have been raised female, Jamie sets out on a perilous journey to adulthood. The elfin princess can thrive, but will she risk losing her family and her education for a boy who may desert her, or a toddler she may never be allowed to adopt?
