about

A brave first-hand account of online personality Alex Bertie''s life, struggles, and victories as a transgender teen, as well as a groundbreaking guide for transitioning teens.

Long before he became known for his YouTube videos, Alex Bertie was an isolated, often-afraid transgender teenager looking for answers.
