"This beautiful memoir frequently made me cry, and just as frequently it made me laugh. Most importantly, the story left me in a bit of awe at the possibilities of human experience, and at the author's skill in translating what could be melodramatic into lovely prose that quietly illuminated her own deeply personal experiences—into a story that can reach every reader."

"Reading this book felt like I was in conversation with the author. Nicky's story is so inspiring for everyone because of her honesty and her determination. What a remarkable and beautiful woman. She has an amazing sense of humor even when the situation seems impossible. Once I started reading this book, I couldn't put it down." 

"Nicola’s memoir is a beautifully written and honest account of one woman’s journey of self-awareness, acceptance and love. Nicola is a talented writer and was able to vividly convey the emotions she was feeling along her journey. I laughed, I cried and I cheered her on. In the end, I felt honored to have been able to read such a personal and moving story."

"For an authentic look at how one professional man decided to honor his true self and make the journey from male to female, you need to read Nicola Chase's very compelling story. It is a tale told with utter honesty about the mix of emotions affecting transgender individuals, and how not only their lives are forever changed but also the lives of their family members and loved ones."

"Nicky's story is so moving and incredible. She tells her story with great humour and there were many times when she had me laughing out loud. Her message is very clear and the story takes us from her life as a man named Neil who then became the woman Nicky. It is a very brave book and Nicky should be applauded for her open, honest storytelling. I would love to have a cup of tea with Nicky one day and I think anyone who reads her story will feel the same way."

"I could not put this sensitively and intelligently book down. I highly recommend this beautifully written memoir of the experiences and thought processes Nicola went through during her transition."

"A moving story of, and by, a courageous intelligent beautiful woman, with a great sense of humour."
