A Safe Girl to Love (Paperback)
This collection of short stories rightfully won the Lambda Literary Award for transgender fiction. Casey Plett talks about her changing relationships to friends, family, sex and more as a young trans woman moving between Brooklyn, Canada, bars, bedrooms, and everywhere in between.— From H. Melt's Picks
Eleven unique short stories that stretch from a rural Canadian Mennonite town to a hipster gay bar in Brooklyn, featuring young trans women stumbling through loss, sex, harassment, and love.
These stories, shiny with whiskey and prairie sunsets, rattling subways and neglected cats, show growing up as a trans girl can be charming, funny, frustrating, or sad, but never will it be predictable.
