About the Author

"Lemay's writing is superb--the family stories at once heartbreaking and inspiring. VERDICT This is a vital and engrossing book about how to live an authentic life."--Library Journal, STARRED

"Engrossing and compassionate...This fascinating, heart-wrenching memoir offers invaluable insights into issues of gender identity."--Publishers Weekly, STARRED review

"A moving memoir, Lemay's is an important book because there is virtually nothing else available about transgender children as young as Jacob. Though most readers will view Jacob as the book's main character, his older, precocious sister says that love and kindness are. And who can argue with that?"--Booklist, STARRED

"Compassionate, wise, and sensitively told, Lemay's narrative offers moving portraits of a mother and family willing to embrace radical change in order to unconditionally support their child...An intimate and clearly heartfelt memoir." --Kirkus

"Weaving the story of her own early struggles with faith and her attempts as a mother to decipher her son's needs, What We Will Become takes us on an unforgettable journey whose conclusion is both haunting and redemptive. With her lyrical and intimate prose, Mimi Lemay makes the case that faith can, and should, go hand-in-hand with acceptance as she provides a compelling vision of a world where every individual can become who they are meant to be."--Sarah McBride, author of Tomorrow Will Be Different: Love, Loss, and the Fight for Trans Equality

"With precision, honesty and grace, Mimi Lemay brings us on a journey to an uncertain world with her son, Jacob, and their entire family. Along the way, she reminds us that exclusion and injustice are no match for a mother's devotion. What We Will Become is more than one family's story. It is a striking call to action for a country where every child is worthy, believed in, and loved."--Congressman Joe Kennedy III

"What We Will Become is a triumphant, introspective story about being and becoming It beautifully reminds us of the challenges, but also the necessity, of unconditional love, both for ourselves and for those we care about. It gives me hope for the future of transgender children."--Gavin Grimm, Transgender Activist
