Chris James Posted February 19, 2014 Report Share Posted February 19, 2014 I know a lot of stories on AD cater to the younger crowd but I don't think we look at the pre-teen audience. It makes sense for parents of a transgender leaning kid to find books that give them a sense of self identity, and there are far too few to choose from. I don't know if I would be comfortable writing something like this, I don't have the background which might prepare me to do it well. Thinking like a child is difficult enough when my characters are teenagers. We might pull our thinking from personal experience but pre-adolescence seems so far distant in the past I would certainly fail if I tried to make a story relevant to that age group. But it seems some adults can do just that, how special: http://www.advocate.com/commentary/2014/02/18/op-ed-stories-gender-nonconforming-kids-need Would anyone here even try to write a children's book, much less one about transgender kids? I agree with the opinion's author, there is a need, a great need for books like this. Quote Link to comment
