Description

New York Times Bestseller • Winner of the 2015 WOMEN'S WAY Book Prize • Goodreads Best of 2014 Semi-Finalist • Books for a Better Life Award Finalist • Lambda Literary Award Finalist • Time Magazine “30 Most Influential People on the Internet” • American Library Association Stonewall Honor Book

In her profound and courageous New York Times bestseller, Janet Mock establishes herself as a resounding and inspirational voice for the transgender community—and anyone fighting to define themselves on their own terms.

With unflinching honesty and moving prose, Janet Mock relays her experiences of growing up young, multiracial, poor, and trans in America, offering readers accessible language while imparting vital insight about the unique challenges and vulnerabilities of a marginalized and misunderstood population. Though undoubtedly an account of one woman’s quest for self at all costs, Redefining Realness is a powerful vision of possibility and self-realization, pushing us all toward greater acceptance of one another—and of ourselves—showing as never before how to be unapologetic and real.

    A must read for everyone! The is a beautiful depiction of honesty in the face of adversity. Bravo Janet! As a queer person exploring my own gender identity for the first time, this showed me that no matter what I find it was within me all the time. I am grateful for this book and cannot wait to read your next addition.

    This is a book of education and acknowledgement of transfolk, particulary for those of color who largely go unrepresented. The life of the author could have been easier with better education of the public at large making it easier for all who's struggle doesn't go along with mainstream society. This book will go along to help that end, especially if also read by people who don't a person who is transgender.

    Redefining Realness challenged every notion I had of trans women and gave me insight into a world that I know little about.

    I found this book to be very informative and entertaining at the same time! Janet Mock's account of her life is nothing short of a feature length movie. Don't get confused by the subject of the book! Although it almost speaks directly to trans-youth, it also reveals the hurt and abuse that heterosexual cis men and women sometime cause on purpose or accidentally through ignorance. Janet provides each and everyone of us with the tools we need to live together as a human race and not be divided by "isms"!
  • Phenomenol journey, powerful voice

    Janet’s story "Redefining Realness" removes the shame from an all too common story for many trans women of color. Janet intimately recounts moments from her life, her words vividly painting a picture of an unbridled spirit being forged through trauma and adversity. So many times throughout the book I paused to hug the book, to hug this young woman for being so strong and so brave. I am not someone who cries, but reading Janet’s story broke me open as a wave of affirmation and forgiveness, of healing and liberation washed over me. I am a grown trans woman who has lived identifying as female for over 14 years, and I have never had a more catharticly empowering experience as reading Redefining Realness. I loved the book so much that I had my organization purchase 15 copies so that I can facilitate a book club for trans women of color to read and discuss. My hope is that as many trans women as possible will find motivation to redefine realness in their own lives and find their own path to womanhood, Identity, Love, and so much more.
