    I didn't want to be the first person to review this book, but such is life. There are people who have a great story to tell and should tell it. I think Wenn and Beatrice have such a story. I was very, very curious to read about their journey through relationship and gender identity, and I was anticipating an informative, interesting read. I've read quite a number of books featuring transgender characters, and I'm always seeking to grow my wealth of knowledge on the topic of gender identity.

I've read quite a number of books featuring transgender characters, and I'm always seeking to grow my wealth of knowledge on the topic of gender identity. However, this book is also a prime example of the truth that just because you have a story to tell, it doesn't make you a writer. Frankly, Transitioning Together: One Couple's Journey of Gender and Identity Discovery is barely readable. Wenn and Beatrice should have had someone with more experience write their story and truly do justice to it. The book looks like it has never seen an editor's desk. I read paragraphs over and over again, trying to understand them. The writing is stilted and confusing, and there are glaring issues with grammar and sentence structure. I understand that both authors are on the autism spectrum, and I applaud them for getting their story out there, but I would advice them to give their book some spit shine and polish before presenting it to the public. *Copy provided in exchange for an honest review*

    I was assigned this book for my Autism Studies class about teens and adults. I don’t think I ever would have picked this up on my own. While it was an interesting mirror into a totally different lifestyle, I couldn’t stand the way the book was laid out/organized or the repetition (especially hearing about Beatrice’s men issues). I do think it helped me expand my knowledge and think about things in a different way. I was disappointed that there wasn’t more about Autism and how it affected Wenn an I was assigned this book for my Autism Studies class about teens and adults.

There were little mentions but I wanted more.

    A very honest, understanding book describing the sometimes difficult process of transitioning. It was good that Wenn and Beatrice had each other for help and support, which is something that many children / adults don't have. This book is one that should be read by anyone who is in this position and by others, to gain some understanding and insight in this process. Highly Recommended. I was given a digital copy of this book by the publisher Jessica Kingsley publishers via Netgalley in return for an A very honest, understanding book describing the sometimes difficult process of transitioning.
