Here, Jordan has been adopted from her native Vietnam by a wealthy American couple. She has to learn to navigate being a queer Asian woman amongst New York City’s elite, who tend to treat her as an exotic attraction. Something else that sets her apart from her peers? Her ability to bring paper silhouettes temporarily to life. Jay Gatsby, Daisy Buchanan, and Nick Carroway are all here, but it’s Jordan you’ll remember long after you’ve finished this spellbinding tale. (publishers website)
Black on Both Sides: A Racial History of Trans Identity by
Publication Date: 2017-12-05
The story of Christine Jorgensen, America’s first prominent transsexual, famously narrated trans embodiment in the postwar era. Her celebrity, however, has obscured other mid-century trans narratives—ones lived by African Americans such as Lucy Hicks Anderson and James McHarris. Their erasure from trans history masks the profound ways race has figured prominently in the construction and representation of transgender subjects. In Black on Both Sides, C. Riley Snorton identifies multiple intersections between blackness and transness from the mid-nineteenth century to present-day anti-black and anti-trans legislation and violence.
The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by

Along the way, she finds out that a family isn’t always something you’re born to, but something that you can discover in the strangest places.
