The Other Me
by Suzanne van Rooyen
This is a novel by a South African author who lives in Finland, and it's about a young transgender person. => There was no way I could resist The Other Me. ^^ My interest in South Africa is all Rurousha's fault! Go say hi to her here.* And gender stuff is always incredibly fascinating to me. Plus, the story is pretty short, just 216 pages.
From the author's site:
“Suzanne is a tattooed storyteller from South Africa. She currently lives in Finland and finds the cold, dark forests nothing if not inspiring. Although she has a Master’s degree in music, Suzanne prefers conjuring strange worlds and creating quirky characters. When not writing, she teaches dance and music to middle schoolers and entertains her shiba inu, Lego.”
