Chapter 2: Chapter Two
"...to her brain. Why had I admitted anything to her? Packing and returning to the dorm seemed the safest thing to do, but she had me trapped in her specimen jar. What choice did I have? If she wasn’t my friend, she might tell Mom I really did have gender issues. Then I’d be history. ..."

Chapter 3: Chapter Three
"...“I hope so.” I chuckled, a soft melody at first, like wind chimes in the breeze. How long had it been since the little princess made a sound like that? When I realized that giggling was against another one of Jameson’s ridiculous gender rules, the insanity of it all bubbled up out of me as musical laughter. ..."

"... pressure you any more. All right?” I studied his face, thinking he’d probably be praying about my situation. Well, that was okay. My dad wasn’t likely to listen to God. “I have a doctorate to finish before I can even think about gender issues.” “A PhD? I thought you weren’t ..."

"... “Well, there you are.” She nodded in emphasis. “Mother wants us to go along with whatever Dr. Cameron recommends. She also forbids either of us to ask for any treatment related to your gender issues. All right? The less you argue or complain, the sooner we’ll be through.” ..."
66.
"... I glanced at my cousin, who was standing on the other side of the small room. She nodded. “Graeme, this is a bit awkward. Her mother kept her from doctors. She’s seventeen and has some gender issues.” “Seventeen. What sort of gender issues?” Kaylah rolled her eyes. “Her ..."

"... “Graeme, this is a bit awkward. Her mother kept her from doctors. She’s seventeen and has some gender issues.” “Seventeen. What sort of gender issues?” Kaylah rolled her eyes. “Her parents insist she’s a boy.” “Ah. How were the UTIs treated?” “Her mother ..."

"... you mind asking Skye to assist?” She nodded and stepped out of the room. Graeme turned back to me then. “Your UTI is what concerns me, not your gender, but I still need to examine you. All right?” Biting my lip, I nodded. At least he asked my permission first. “Well, when ..."

"... He dropped his hand and turned his head away. “I spoke with another doctor last week. In Boston. He said changing genders at your age is a bad idea. Too many issues. Should have raised you female from birth. Too late now.” He grimaced. “Perhaps at nine, but not seventeen.” ..."

"... you female from birth. Too late now.” He grimaced. “Perhaps at nine, but not seventeen.” “What gender change?” Kaylah bounced up out of her chair, livid. “She’s a girl!” I ducked as silent laser rays from my father’s eyes crossed the table. Uncle Stephan scowled, ..."

"... I ducked as silent laser rays from my father’s eyes crossed the table. Uncle Stephan scowled, lightning flashing around his head. “Sit down! We’re not debating Jameson’s gender again.” Kaylah glanced my way and sat down, arms crossed, murder written across her face. Dad ..."

"...On Saint Andrew’s I hadn’t thought much about gender. Taking care of Rachael had consumed most of my energy. Pastor Gillespie had led his wife, and me, and the other girls in prayer and Bible study. The Gillespies had held me accountable without any gender pressure. My last Sunday on Saint Andrew’s, the pastor had preached from First ..."
"...“Lord, thank you for having mercy on me. My gender’s become an idol. The desire to be a boy or a girl consumes my every thought and dictates my actions. The obsession nearly cost me my life just now. Please forgive me and release me from my chains. Please show me who you want me to be and what ..."
"...tags now. All I had left of him was gone. It occurred to me that he would have wanted me to go to Saint Andrew’s. “Lord, I’ll go back home and find out if Dad will let me go to Saint Andrew’s. Take care of Rachael and forget about gender for a while. Thank you for forgiving me.” ..."

-------------------------------------------
"...I opened my Bible and read in the dim afternoon light, sheltering the book against the wind. All the calculations based on genetics, gonads, genitals, and gender came down to one thing—how to play the hand I’d been dealt. The chief end of Man was to glorify God and enjoy Him forever, but thus far my life had been consumed by questions of gender. I longed for God to make something out of what remained. ..."

"...Sean. It bothered them that he’d befriended Jameson. But they didn’t know Sean, and I didn’t care that he had liked Jameson. He loved me. All of me. I couldn’t change my past and wasn’t sure I wanted to. “Dad should talk to Dr. Cameron. I don’t need a gender program. And since when has Dad insisted his daughters go to college? If Alicia were living under the same roof as her boyfriend, you’d be demanding she get married. All I’m asking is that you treat me the same as her. ..."
