    Sensitivity Angst AcceptanceLianne Simon is as much a poet as she is a prose author This exceptionally sensitive book sings and in making that choice in her writing Simon has created something far than a study of gender conflict she has created a hymn to all young teenagers who face some of the most impossibly difficult

    Jamie doesn’t fit in He tries to be who his parents want him to be but she sees a different path in her dreams and either way the Jamie who faces the world isn’t the one in the mirror’s reflection The doctor says his patient “should have been raised female” but “his mom and dad didn’t like that” So now Jamieson goes to board

Issues faced by a child growing up with a sexually ambiguous bodyJameson can be like other boys after minor surgery and a few years on testosterone Well at least that’s what his parents always say But Jamie sees an elfin princess in the. Confessions of a Teenage Hermaphrodite is the story of Jamie a Hermaphrodite Though Jamie feels like a girl and thinks of herself as an Elfin Princess her parents raise her as Jameson a boy Not wanting to hurt their feelings Jamie creates a set of rules that gives life to Jameson and locks away the princess But when a medical student tells her that she should have been raised as a girl the Elfin Princess wants to break freeThis turned out to be a really difficult book to read and review It has managed to touch all the right nerves and makes me want to rant a lot First let us cover the topic this book is aimed at spreading the awareness about everything that has to do with hermaphrodites or intersex persons Not everybody is aware of the facts concerning intersex people myself included While I had some general ideas and knowledge I had absolutely no idea about the medical aspects and the treatment procedures After reading this book and doing some side research I can say that I am bit awareComing to the plotline it is pretty simple as it revolves around Jamie s life Jamie had pretty much come to accept that she would be living her life as Jameson and that the little princess would have to be gone for good forever But a person s identity is what it is and it doesn t simply change because of what people around want So when Sharon wants to be friends with her the Elfin Princess within her sees a chance to breathe and takes it The story then progresses on to Jamie discovering her true self and making some tough choices for herself It wasn t easy but she had friendship love and help from different expected and unexpected corners to see her through It was an emotional journey to take with Jamie Seeing the clash between her own needs and her need to make her parents happy was toughThis book also has some great characters Kaylah deserves the first mention because she has the most tender heart and was the first person in Jamie s life to accept her unconditionally I absolutely loved her Then there were Tyler and Sean who loved her too Sharon and Lisa s support were invaluable But I guess Jamie s mother deserves a special mention too I could feel for her too as like Jamie she was caught between two ends too On one hand she loved Jamie and wanted what s right for her On the other hand was her husband s wishes and her religion Even though I kept wishing that she would take a proper stand I think it was kind of brave of her to manage to do whatever she couldAnother matter that has been covered in this book is that of religion Jamie s faith played a big role in how things turned out in the end I have always believed that religion is a deeply personal matter and if a person s belief drove her to the right path then that belief can never be wrong irrespective of what the world says Jamie s faith with the help of the Gillespie s helped her throughOverall this book was an eye opener and I have learnt a lot from it The struggle that Jamie had to go through for no fault of her own was heart wrenching I wish that parents and society in general was open minded and understand that God s creation can never be wrong or defective and learn to accept people just the way they are I just wish that the story had a bit about Jamie s interaction with her parents and classmates at college

Mirror and male hormones would only ruin her pretty face For him to become the man his parents expect Jameson must leave behind the hopes and dreams of a little girl But what is so wrong with Jamie’s dreams that they can’t be her life. I received this book free from the author in a Read 4 Review in exchange for an honest review This book peaked my interest from the very beginning I am in the healthcare profession and honestly I have always been curious about conditions such as hermaphrodites Then out jumped this book and I knew that I had to read it This novel is a sweet coming of age story that really hit a nerve with me I hated that Jamie s parents didn t accept her and wanted her to be something that she wasn t just to please them I m glad that there were people present in Jamie s life that cared enough to give her that support that she needed during this trying time I found this book to be very well written and I liked how the author bounced around between Jamie s two personalities This book was both sad and exciting to read There were so many emotions expressed by each and every character I really loved reading about Jamie s story It was such a emotional roller coaster for both Jaime and the reader She is such a brave and strong character because of all of the ordeals she went through Despite not having 100% support from her parents Jaime still did what made her happy I feel bad that Jamie s mother would not stick up for her even though she knew that Jaime should have been raised a girl all because of her jerk husband Overall this was a great read Hopefully it gets awareness out there for these types of conditions I m sure there are lots of people who have had to deal with similar issues I would recommend this book to those readers who may be curious about gender issues and also to those looking for a great realistic read
