“Lev and Gottlieb pull together a comprehensive exploration of the power of family support, discuss the profound impact of raising a transgender and gender nonconforming child, and address the importance of affirmative approaches to help navigate their journey. The personal and professional focus on the often misunderstood and silenced voices of parents and family members, whose love, wisdom, concerns, struggles, and joys are candidly explored, makes this a must-read.”
