But as his preteen and teen years came to pass, he understood that label didn’t fit him at all. In his early twenties, Jeremy began his transition, adopting his new name and eventually undergoing top surgery. ONCE A GIRL, ALWAYS A BOY is “a multifaceted, rich, and moving exploration of the trans experience.” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review). We will talk with Jeremy's mother Jo, possibly together with Jeremy himself, about the personal aspects of the journey, sharing support and the inner growth of the family together and as individuals.
