By Hazel Edwards and Ryan Kennedy
18 year old Skye plays in an all-girl punk band, The Chronic Cramps. And she is just coming out as someone who feels that inside... she's a guy. As a transgender FTM (female to male) teen, Skye starts transitioning into Finn.
With help from friends and family, Finn goes public about his transition as he makes his way and his name in the punk music scene.
This book has been nominated for the 23rd Annual Lambda Literary Awards, and I thought it was really interesting that Ryan, one of the authors, experienced gender reassignment from female to male himself. Add your review of "F2M: The Boy Within" in comments!
