Through six years of therapy and self-exploration he was able to find his true self as a transgender man.

Starting Monday : Seven Keys to a Permanent, Positive Relationship with Food
By Karen Koenig
If your life is spent going from super self-care to “I don’t care,” especially around food, this book will help you make sense of your yo-yoing patterns and turn them around.  When you do all the right things for yourself, then stop doing them, and start again, it’s hard not to feel frustrated and even just a little bit crazy.  This book will explain how your on-again-off-again behaviors are rooted in underlying (generally unconscious) mental conflicts.  It will help you resolve mixed feelings about intimacy and sexuality, self-comfort, self-worth, maintaining health, what is enough, identity, and creating change so that you can more easily attain and maintain your eating, fitness, and self-care goals.

The Stone Girl
By Alyssa B. Sheinmel
There are two things that are true about Sethie Weiss: one is that she is always hungry, a mean, angry kind of hunger that feels like a piece of glass in her belly; the other is that she is always missing Shaw, the boy she loves, the boy who isn’t quite her boyfriend.
Sethie has always been a hard worker; she worked hard to get her weight down to 111, and she knows that will a little more hard work – a few more meals skipped, a few more snacks vomited away – she can get the number on the scale even lower.  She will work on her body just as she worked to get perfect grades, to finish her college applications early, to get her first kiss from Shaw.
Sethie will not allow herself one slip, not one bad day, not one break in concentration.  Her body is there for her to work on when everything and everyone else – her best friend, her school work, and Shaw – are gone.
From critically-acclaimed writer Alyssa Sheinmel comes an unflinching and unparalleled portrayal of one girl’s withdrawal into herself, until she is sinking like a stone into her own illness, her own loneliness – her own self.
