This book club pick has garnered a lot of attention for itself because it covers a hot topic — the transgender experience. The protagonist is the youngest of five brothers but feels that he’s female, an experience that the author personally went through with her own daughter (previously, son). If you’re seeking a meaningful read, you’ll probably have the same experience Reese did with this pick, “Every once in a while, I read a book that opens my eyes in a way I never expected.”
