ABOUT THE BOOK

Follow young trans girl, Stephie, and her group of queer friends as they navigate school, family and relationships, and experiences of being trans.

Humorous and acerbic, this ground-breaking graphic narrative brilliantly explores the journey of discovering and embracing your evolving gender identity, and promotes a sense of community and empowerment through artfully illustrated stories.

Based on the hugely successful and influential webcomic Assigned Male, and in print for the first time, this expanded collection contains exclusive content as well as familiar, well-loved characters.
