Two fabulous Vancouver butches introduced me to Ivan Coyote's work years ago. They taught me about living w/ grace, compassion, and kindness. My heart thumped as I read these stories, remembering our high school years. When I finished Tomboy Survival Guide, I immediately downloaded this ebook b/c the storytelling was so compelling, I didn't want it to be done. There is some overlap between these two books, but I didn't mind a bit.

I just finished the book and I found some small parts intresting but most of it was all the same. I feel like the authour could have done more with all the good ideas they had. However, I did like the message that everyone is equal.

This is a truely amazing book. Not only is it incredably inspirational, but its also hilarious. I loved the style of writing and everything about it.

The main character tells stories about their past throughout the novel. It is not a bad book, however it is not the style that I prefer.

I loved how Ivan increased my social awareness to gender sensitivity in a friendly comedic way that almost anyone can relate to.

I really enjoy Ivan stories, but was disappointed because so many in this book had been previously published in earlier collections.
