Top Ten Most Challenged Books
I thought this book was very sweet and perfect for it's audience. I did some research on the true story behind the book and found Jazz to be an incredible young woman. She has overcome so much and has made many positive changes for others going through the same things. Despite the negativity surrounding this book, I am so proud of Jazz for writing it. I am certain that it has helped many children; both those transitioning themselves and helping other children to understand the process. This book is so child friendly. It uses simple vocabulary that be understood by young readers but it still very impactful. I don't feel like the subject matter is "dumbed-down" as often happens in these kind of books. I can see how it would be so useful in a daycare or school environment with young child. I can even see it being a great discussion starter for teens and adults, not just for children.
