I'm Looking Through You: Growing Up Haunted by Jennifer Finney Boylan

I had actually picked this book up under the impression that it was written about a child who had grown up in a haunted house.

This is in fact about a haunted child growing up in a haunted house. Young Jimmy really wants to be young Jenny, with the dresses, underthings, and desires of a young lady. Written very well and you fall in love with the individual, whether at a young age as a young boy, troubled because he wants to be a she, or as an older woman after having gone through the change to become what she always desired to be.

Jennifer has an awesome sense of humor, reflected in her writing. She is a college professor and I personally would love to be in on one of her classes. This is a very impressive woman, who has gone through a very rough time gently.
