My Son, My Daughter, My Child is a book that explores the societal acceptance of difference in a family. Author, Amethyst Rose blazes a trail in the African American community in light of her transgendered grandson, Jason. I proves to be a compelling read and a heart rendering story about love, family values and teenage self identity.
Jason also has Asperger Syndrome and is a high functioning Autistic teenager.
