"A transgender actress and businesswoman tells the no-holds-barred story of her transition from male to female. DuBois experienced her transgender awakening at age 4. Her parents put her in a dress—the only dry garment available—after they rescued her from drowning, and she realized, 'I was a girl and the dress would always be part of me.' A fierce, unsparing memoir."
