Model and activist Geena Rocero shares her story in this poignant and powerful memoir. Her narration is full of life--sometimes buoyantly joyous, sometimes breathless with tension, sometimes playful and tinged with laughter. She recounts her teen years as a pageant queen in the Philippines, her immigration to the U.S., the years she spent closeted while working as a model, and her eventual coming out and career as an advocate. Her outstanding narration is supported by a top-notch audio production that includes music, the sounds of crowds clapping and cheering, the thuds of a heartbeat, and more. It's an immersive experience that highlights both the transphobia Rocero has faced and the joy she has found in art, trans and Filipino community activism, and family. L.S.
