Bestselling and acclaimed author Jennifer Finney Boylan returns with another remarkable memoir about gender and parenting Jenny Fi...nney Boylan told her wife that she was transgender when their two children were young, and as Jenny transitioned from a man to a woman and from a father to a mother, their family faced unique challenges and questions. In this thoughtful, tear-jerking, hilarious memoir, Jenny asks what it means to be a father, or a mother. From the friends who support their new configuration to the woman who says she s "too close-minded" to let their sons continue to play together to Jenny s wife, their family grows and changes together in ways both utterly exceptional and entirely commonplace, as their sons turn into teenagers and a relationship of many years weathers illness, loss of parents, and a husband turning into a wife. Through incredibly insightful interviews, Jenny examines relationships with fathers and mothers, people s memories of the children they were and the parents they had, and the many different ways a family can be. Jenny includes conversations with Richard Russo, Edward Albee, Ann Beattie, Augusten Burroughs, Susan Minot, Trey Ellis, Timothy Kreider, Anna Quindlen, and other parents and children discussing gender, how families are shaped, and the difficulties and wonders of being human. Followed by an Afterword by Anna Quindlen that includes Jenny and her wife discussing the challenges they ve faced and the love they share, Stuck in the Middle with You will be another classic.

HOPE FOR YOUR PRODIGAL . HELP FOR YOU Worrying about our loved ones is the worst kind of worry in the world, espe­cially when it s... our children for whom we re concerned. From the moment they re born, our youngsters have an unrivaled place in our hearts, and we feel an unending burden for their welfare. We do our best to provide for them and to protect them.

Prayers and Promises for Worried Parents offers hope for your prodigal and help for you. In more than a hundred brief readings, Robert J. Morgan offers doses of hope encouragements from Scripture, effective prayers, true-life stories, promises from God s Word, timely quotes, and helpful hints for coping with yourself and your child in difficult times.

Losing our parents when we ourselves are adults is in the natural order of things, a rite of passage into true adulthood.
