Detransition, Baby, by Torrey Peters

challenging dark emotional funny informative reflective sad tense medium-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? Yes
  • Loveable characters? It's complicated
  • Diverse cast of characters? Yes
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? It's complicated


this was . SUCH a fascinating read omg . i rly appreciate how complex it was and how real and complicated the characters felt. it was my first adult fiction book so definitely a new experience and i’m rly glad i started w this one! 

i think the exploration of being trans specifically a trans woman was given so much range and depth and i rly appreciate the aspects of the trans experience that were described. this was honestly pretty i informative and i thought having all three characters’ povs was super cool and done very well.

i’m not sure how i feel ab the ending but i think it makes sense and i’m definitely satisfied w this book solely bc the story had so many layer and parts to it, all of which were given enough attention that i felt complete/had closure w them. overall i’d def recommend!
