Waiting on Wednesday - Confessions of a Teenage Hermaphrodite by Lianne Simon

"Waiting On" Wednesday spotlights upcoming releases that everyone's excited about (created by Jill at Breaking The Spine).

Confessions of a Teenage Hermaphrodite by Lianne Simon

Born between the sexes, Jamie must leave behind a young girl's dreams to become the man her family expects. Jamie was born with a testis, an ovary, and a pixie face. He could be a boy after minor surgery and a few years on testosterone. At least, that's what his parents always say; but he sees an elfin princess in the mirror. 

When a medical student tells Jamie that he should have been raised female, he explores and discovers the life he could have as a girl. The elfin princess can thrive, but will she risk losing her family and her education for a boyfriend who may leave her, and a toddler she may never be allowed to adopt? [Sept 18, 2012]

This is a book I'm very excited about. I just got my hands on an advance copy to review for Frock, and I'm anxious to give it a read. For a sneak peek at the first chapter, hop on over to Lianne's site and treat yourself to a read.


  1. This book is really new to me... sounds really interesting, I find the topic sensitive though I haven't read a book with a topic like this it makes me squeamish for some reason.
