Sasha Masha

By Agnes Borinsky
Narrated by: Agnes Borinsky
Length: 3 hours 30 minutes

Sasha Masha

Sasha Masha is an #OwnVoices queer coming-of-age story featuring Alex, who might be trans. By the end of the story, he’s not sure of his pronouns, but he knows his name—it’s Sasha Masha. Sasha Masha, who wears dresses and lipstick and dances and feels beautiful. This book—warm and sweet, with a few cringe-worthy high school stumbles that turn out okay—is a glimpse into how Alex lets Sasha Masha come through. It illustrates especially how unconditionally loving and accepting queer people can be of each other. I loved Agnes Borinsky’s natural writing style, which was made even better when read in her voice.”

Detransition, Baby

A Novel

By Torrey Peters
Narrated by: Renata Friedman
Length: 12 hours 31 minutes

Detransition, Baby

“This book led to my favorite book club conversation to date. The characters are messy and mostly unlikeable and Peters unflinchingly dives straight into topics in trans identity often considered taboo, without worrying about placating a cisgender audience. A quietly chaotic and fascinating character study.”

“Since the death of his ornithologist mother in a fire five years ago, Nadir, a young, closeted trans man, has lived with and cared for his grandmother. Struggling with his mother’s death and his identity, he begins a quest to validate her sighting of a rare bird, so rare that only two others have claimed to have seen it and most ornithologists deny its existence. One of the people known to have documented the bird and allegedly painted it, is a mysterious artist who disappeared many years ago, Laila Z. In his quest to find the painting, Nadir discovers a notebook kept by Laila Z, and within that notebook, he learns secrets linking her with his family before both his grandparents and Laila Z immigrated to the United States from Syria. His quest to vindicate his mother parallels his journey to better know himself and to begin to live freely and openly. In this captivating story of three generations, told by Nadir and Laila Z, Joukhadar explores the need to know oneself, to belong, to be seen and accepted and loved. ”

Cemetery Boys

By Aiden Thomas
Narrated by: Avi Roque
Length: 13 hours 47 minutes

Cemetery Boys

“"Listening to Cemetery Boys made me smile. A lot. Aiden Thomas presents a story of persistence, mystery, and finding one’s place in the world. Yadriel, a trans, teenage, latinx boy, lives in a family of brujos and brujas. After coming out as trans his family does not know where he fits within their traditions. With the help of his opinionated cousin Maritza, Yadriel completes the ceremony to become a brujo in secret and accidentally summons the wrong ghost: Julian, a high energy boy from his school. Yadriel, Julian and Maritza set out to solve the mystery of Julian’s death, and to release his spirit. Of course, to make things more awkward, Yadriel develops a crush on the spirit boy. What more could one ask for? Thomas creates a magical but real world highlighting family dynamics surrounding trans identity within a gendered society, the need to prove oneself, and the importance of connecting to family. This book may sound spooky, but instead the story is feel-good, heartwarming, and silly at times; it’s all about celebrating life and being who you are."”

Birthday

A Novel

By Meredith Russo
Narrated by: Dana Aliya Levinson
Length: 7 hours 58 minutes

Birthday

“Loved this YA novel of gender alignment! Two babies "meet" at birth in the hospital and grow up as close friends with a special bond. One of them is a "typical" male; the other realizes with more and more clarity that, though born male, she is female. Predictably, she has lots of difficulties and traumas as she matures -- the "normal" growing pains plus the increasing conviction that her body just doesn't match her insides. Through the chronicling of the friends' lives (every year, from birthday to birthday, told in their alternating voices) runs the constant thread of the soulmates' lifelong friendship. Spoiler alert: it turns out well in the end! The extensive conversation at the end between the author and the audiobook narrator [who are both trans women] is worth the price of the audiobook. Open, honest, soul-baring, and replete with valuable support and resources, the interview itself could be a life-changing resource for someone with gender questions and confusions.”
