Publisher's Summary

The transgender memoir you won't stop hearing about. Rhyannon Styles will do for transgender what Matt Haig did for mental health.

Elle columnist Rhyannon Styles tells her unforgettable life story in The New Girl, charting her incredible journey from male to female. A powerful book about being true to ourselves, for anyone who's ever felt a little lost.

Imagine feeling lost in your own body. Imagine spending years living a lie, denying what makes you you. This was Ryan's reality. He had to choose: die as a man or live as a woman.

In 2012 Ryan made the choice to set Rhyannon free. At the age of 30, Rhyannon began her transition, taking the first steps on the long road to her true self, and the emotional, physical and psychological journey that would change her forever. In a time when the world is finally waking up to transgender people, Rhyannon opens up to us, holding nothing back in this heartbreakingly honest telling of her life. Through her catastrophic lows and incredible highs, Rhyannon paints a picture of what it's like to be transgender in glorious Technicolor. From cabaret drag acts, brushes with celebrity and Parisian clown school to struggles with substance abuse and crippling depression, Rhyannon's story is like nothing you've read before. It is a redemptive, moving and empowering story of how we must fight to be true to ourselves, even if it seems beyond the realms of possibility. This we owe to ourselves.

    "Mostly Frustrating"

    As a trans woman I will broadly support anyone who has the courage to share their story. It's a good thing she's doing. However we're currently swimming in a lot of memoirs at the moment. Some details of her life are fascinating, but I just wish this was more well written, especially if they call themselves a professional columnist.

    As for the audiobook it's understandable that Rhiannon read her own book but sadly she is no narrator. Buy the book if you have to. Listening to it won't add to your experience.
