Descrição da editora

From an award-winning journalist comes a vivid and moving portrait of eight trans and nonbinary teenagers
across the country, following their daily triumphs, struggles, and all that encompasses growing up trans in
America today
“A master class in journalism as a force for change. Nico Lang cuts through the political ping-pong over
transgender rights to surface the human stories that too often go ignored. Lang’s lucid and clear-eyed account
of their lives offers an essential corrective, reminding us that there’s nothing more American than the freedom
to be yourself.” —SAMANTHA ALLEN, author of Real Queer America
“Lang weaves this broad bleak terrain with warm insights and a clear immediacy of message. Expansive and
compassionate.” GABE DUNN, New York Times bestselling author of I Hate Everyone But You
Media coverage tends to sensationalize the fight over how trans kids should be allowed to live, but what is
incredibly rare are the voices of the people at the heart of this debate: transgender and gender nonconforming
kids themselves. For their groundbreaking new book, journalist Nico Lang spent a year traveling the country to
document the lives of transgender, nonbinary, and genderfluid teens and their families. Drawing on hundreds
of hours of on-the-ground interviews with them and the people in their communities, American Teenager paints
a vivid portrait of what it’s actually like to grow up trans today.
From the tip of Florida’s conservative panhandle to vibrant queer communities in California, and from Texas
churches to mosques in Illinois, American Teenager gives readers a window into the lives of Wyatt, Rhydian,
Mykah, Clint, Ruby, Augie, Jack, and Kylie, eight teens who, despite what some lawmakers might want us to
believe, are truly just kids looking for a brighter future.
