"Apparel Has No Gender" named a Best Book of 2023 by St. Louis Public Library!

"An account of raising a transgender child that deals with all the aspects you might guess it would, but with a special emphasis on love and acceptance. It reads as both guide and memoir, giving the feeling of a friend helping you without condescension or judgment. When reviewing this title for purchase by our library, I had to hold the book at arm’s length to avoid getting our new copy wet with tears. It’s a title that makes me hopeful for the future." -Ted Reidy, materials selector at St. Louis Public Library
