Being Jazz: My Life as a (Transgender) Teen
by Jazz Jennings
Crown Books for Young Readers. 272 pages, $17.99
AS a sort of spokesperson for the younger generation of transgender individuals, Jazz Jennings has plenty of experience. The teenager has her own reality show; she’s co-written a picture book for small children; and she’s been the subject of documentaries and books. In Being Jazz, she finally writes directly and personally to an audience of teenagers and young adults whose lives have been impacted by transgender issues.
