Wyatt Maines從小就知道自己與雙胞胎弟弟Jonas不同:他喜歡打扮、喜歡洋娃娃,認為自己是女孩。當Wyatt在升上小學五年級的夏天,在家人的陪伴下,因為學校禁止他使用女廁而上法院時,他正式成為Nicole。他的家人不僅開始質疑長年以來對於性別與身分的觀念,也開始一段將會永遠改變他們人生的旅程。

普立茲獎得獎得主Amy Ellis Nutt記錄Maines一家人,如何從理解到支持,陪伴孩子走過一切,其關係也因此變得更加緊密。Wyatt的母親很早就了解,她的孩子所需要的是愛與接受:她讓Wyatt穿女孩的服裝,並且不斷寫信給學校行政人員,為的就是保障女兒使用女廁的權利;她的父親為退役空軍,最終卻也克服內心恐懼,成為跨性別者權利的提倡者;她的弟弟則始終在一旁,勇敢地支持著姊姊。

本書作者花費四年時間,記錄一個保守的中產階級家庭如何面對跨性別議題、如何為女兒辯護,以及他們的轉變,是一個關於為自己的信仰與權益辯護的動人故事。

The inspiring true story of a transgender girl, her identical twin brother, and an ordinary American family’s extraordinary journey to understand, nurture, and celebrate the uniqueness in us all, from the Pulitzer Prize–winning science reporter for The Washington Post

When Wayne and Kelly Maines adopted identical twin boys, they thought their lives were complete. But it wasn’t long before they noticed a marked difference between Jonas and his brother, Wyatt. Jonas preferred sports and trucks and many of the things little boys were “supposed” to like; but Wyatt liked princess dolls and dress-up and playing Little Mermaid. By the time the twins were toddlers, confusion over Wyatt’s insistence that he was female began to tear the family apart. In the years that followed, the Maineses came to question their long-held views on gender and identity, to accept and embrace Wyatt’s transition to Nicole, and to undergo an emotionally wrenching transformation of their own that would change all their lives forever.

Becoming Nicole chronicles a journey that could have destroyed a family but instead brought it closer together. It’s the story of a mother whose instincts told her that her child needed love and acceptance, not ostracism and disapproval; of a Republican, Air Force veteran father who overcame his deepest fears to become a vocal advocate for trans rights; of a loving brother who bravely stuck up for his twin sister; and of a town forced to confront its prejudices, a school compelled to rewrite its rules, and a courageous community of transgender activists determined to make their voices heard. Ultimately, Becoming Nicole is the story of an extraordinary girl who fought for the right to be herself.

Granted wide-ranging access to personal diaries, home videos, clinical journals, legal documents, medical records, and the Maineses themselves, Amy Ellis Nutt spent almost four years reporting this immersive account of an American family confronting an issue that is at the center of today’s cultural debate. Becoming Nicole will resonate with anyone who’s ever raised a child, felt at odds with society’s conventions and norms, or had to embrace life when it plays out unexpectedly. It’s a story of standing up for your beliefs and yourself—and it will inspire all of us to do the same.
