This weekend I read Tomorrow Will Be Different by Sarah McBride (that is a link to Amazon but it is not an affiliate link).
This was one of the most amazing books I have ever read. I picked it up on Saturday and I could not put it down until I finished it on Sunday.
Tomorrow Will Be Different is about Sarah's transition as a transgender female from Delaware. You will be completely wrapped up in her story and that of her husband, Andy. From her coming out to her using her voice, and her story, as an advocate for others in the LGBTQ community.
She provides vivid accounts of her time in the White House as an intern, advocating for equal rights and equal protection in the Delaware State Senate, and on the death of her husband (this one brought me to tears).
She is a warm and loving person and to read her words is almost as if you are sitting down with a friend and having a conversation. She is someone that I would love to have coffee with and want to educate me on the LGBTQ issues (there is a lot to learn here).
The book is eye opening and I don't think you can read and not realize that there are changes that are needed in this country. Protections for those who are transgender are slim and don't provide them with nearly enough protection and dignity...may those necessary changes happen swiftly (they shouldn't have to wait).
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
