In her unique, generous, and affecting voice, nineteen-year-old Katie Rain Hill shares her personal journey of undergoing gender reassignment. Now with a reading group guide! Katie Rain Hill realized very young that a serious mistake had been made; she was a girl who had been born in the body of a boy. Suffocating under her peers' bullying and the mounting pressure to be "normal," Katie tried to take her life at the age of eight years old. After several other failed attempts, she finally understood that "Katie"--the girl trapped within her--was determined to live. In this first-person account, Katie reflects on her pain-filled childhood and the events leading up to the life-changing decision to undergo gender reassignment as a teenager. She reveals the unique challenges she faced while unlearning how to be a boy and shares what it was like to navigate the dating world--and experience heartbreak for the first time--in a body that matched her gender identity. Told in an unwaveringly honest voice, Rethinking Normal is a coming-of-age story about transcending physical appearances and redefining the parameters of "normalcy" to embody one's true self.… (mer)

This book reads like Katie cleaned up her diary for freshman comp. (Which she more or less may have; she wrote it when she was 20.) It's full of all-caps and instantly dated pop culture references and lines like, "God, I wanted to kiss him so bad." I got through two chapters. The goal seems to be to show that trans girls can be aggressively ordinary college students, and it certainly succeeds at that! My students sometimes have a higher tolerance for dishy blog style than I do, but make no mistake -- they do notice it and recognize that it's poor writing. The transgender YA field is starting to open up, and I think we as gatekeepers can do better than this.

This is a book about a person who realized at an early age that she was born in a body that did not match her self identified gender and her struggle to become who she wanted to be. Katie Rain Hill chooses to start her story after her corrective gender surgery and she is in her first year of college. This book chronicles Katie's relationship with her parents, her peers, eventual boyfriends as well as the doctor's visits, hormone shots and eventual surgery. This is told in a very conversational tone and would work well in a upper grade high school classroom.

This is the story of Katie, born Luke, and the struggles she went through in her conservative town and school as he came to terms with the fact that he was a girl trapped in a boy’s body. While it was tough for everyone to accept, Luke became Katie and is now a strong voice in the LBGT community. She describes her journey from dealing with bullies to dating. She also gives the reader sound advice on how to treat transgender people as well as other resources to consult. She has an interesting story to tell. ( )

Rethinking Normal is a memoir written by a young woman who transitioned from male to female during her high school years. It's an interesting memoir in that it captures the experience of transitioning at a young age, and the impact that has on school, friends and family. Many of the issues are the same as what you'll read in memoirs by Janet Mock or Julia Serano, but undoubtedly things are different when you're dependent on family and have to go to school every day.

That said, Katie Hill writes this memoir as a 19-year-old, so other than the transition narrative and the pretty awesome outreach she's done, there's not an awful lot of life experience that gets captured in this memoir. Lots of the book is caught up in the drama surrounding the few relationships she's had, which gets a bit tired by the end. ( )
