Review; My Life in Transition: A Super Late Bloomer Collection by Julia Kaye

Last year I was fortunate enough to recieve a press copy of the autobiographical comic colletion My Life in Transition: A Super Late Bloomer Collection by Julia Kaye through Netgalley. Although I read it shortly afterwards, I haven't published my review until now.

Description from Goodreads
The follow-up to the critically acclaimed autobiographical comics collection Super Late Bloomer, documenting transgender artist Julia Kaye’s life post-transition.

My Life in Transition is a story that’s not often told about trans lives: what happens beyond the early days of transition. Both deeply personal and widely relatable, this collection illustrates six months of Julia's life as an out trans woman—about the beauty and pain of love and heartbreak, struggling to find support from bio family and the importance of chosen family, moments of dysphoria and misgendering, learning to lean on friends in times of need, and finding peace in the fact that life keeps moving forward.

After the nerve-wracking, anxiety-ridden early transition period has ended and the hormones have done their thing, this book shows how you can be trans and simply exist in society. You can be trans and have a successful future. You can be trans and have a normal life full of ups and downs. In our current political and social climate, this hopeful, accessible narrative about trans lives is both entertaining and vital.

My Thoughts on the Book
I really loved reading the comic/memoir My Life in Transition. It's one of those books that makes you think a bit, especially as it deals with everyday issues of transgender people transitioning. My Life in Transition is basically a heartwarming read about everyday life for the author.
