The Boy Who Was Born a Girl

One Mother’s Unconditional Love for Her Child




The groundbreaking autobiography of the teenage boy who was born a girl

Jon is a typical teenage boy in all respects except one: he was born a girl.

Brought up as Natasha for fifteen years, Jon can remember feeling male since he was only five years old. When he eventually confides in his mother Luisa, she commits herself unconditionally to helping her child. As mother and son together they embark on an extraordinary journey of transition.

For Jon the changes that followed were the things he'd always wanted. But for Luisa, this meant coming to terms with the enormous loss of her daughter.
