From my publisher:
"This is the story of a very confused kid, growing up in an abusive world that didn't understand him or who and what he was, but as you will see he didn't let much stand in his way of making his dream come true. Through sure determination, lots of sacrifice and humiliation his dream became a reality. The book is loaded with warnings and pitfalls many young transsexuals fall into and are included not only as part of Daphiny's story, but as a warning to others, especially young transsexuals out there that think its just too hard at home. That warning being, considering what all she had to fight through, home seems like paradise. And with today's acceptance of GLBT's and some even having the ability to finish school her best advice would be to stay in school, be who and what God made you, transsexual, and be proud. There were many battles she had to fight growing up on Bourbon Street and the other cities she traveled that she luckily survived, but she would have given anything to have stayed home with her family and grown into who and what she was in a safe and supportive environment.
