Books Info:

I Know Very Well How I Got My Name free pdf The night he loses his virginity, he becomes Dean. Amy Wagner names him-and she would know best. Amy knows all kinds of things that Dean doesn't understand-things about sex, music, and the darker side of life. All Dean knows is his safe suburban home with his parents, books, and imaginary games. Until now, he's been able to hide his true identity, even from himself. To the rest of the world, he is a teenage girl-an awkward, boyish teenage girl, but a girl nonetheless. Meeting Amy changes everything. Soon that protected world around him begins to fall apart, and he is left with no other option but to face himself and the truth. I Know Very Well How I Got My Name chronicles Dean's clumsy progression through the American public school system. It is the 90's and early 2000's, in suburban Syracuse, New York-a world in which LGBTQ bullying is not yet a hot topic in schools, and there is little tolerance for outsiders of any kind. A prequel to the award-winning novel Refuse, Elliott DeLine's second book is about the prevailing myths surrounding bullying and abuse, and the hardships of being young and transgender without a community, support, or a roadmap.

About Elliott Deline

"Though DeLine is only 24, with Refuse and I Know Very Well How I Got My Name, his is already a major contribution to queer literature. Like so many of the classic gay and lesbian novels from the earlier part of the 20th century, these works are sure, years from now, to enjoy wider readership and recognition as pioneering examples of transgender writing." -Kirkus Reviews Elliott DeLine (born 1988) is an independent transgender writer from Syracuse, NY. He is the author of Refuse, "a witty and provocative debut novel," (Lambda Literary Review) which won a silver medal in the 2011 LGBT Rainbow Awards for Best Transgender/Bisexual Fiction. His work has been featured in several publications, including the Modern Love essay series of The New York Times (2011) and The Collection: Short Fiction from the Transgender Vanguard, winner of a 2012 Lambda Literary Award for Best Transgender Fiction. He is a regular blogger for Original Plumbing, the premier FTM magazine, and as of August 2013, the managing editor of Trans-Genre.net. Elliott's newest book, I Know Very Well How I Got My Name, was praised by Kirkus Reviews as "one of the most well-written, nuanced transgender origin stories on the market today...a novella that confirms his impressive range and talent."
