They've called her Oliver since the day she was born. Alice hates that. She has never been or ever wanted to be Oliver. Alone, abused and suicidal, Alice yearns to break free "from the lie that has been my life." That life changes forever the day she meets her fairy godmother, the wise and witty Vincent, a genderfluid drag star named Ursula Undress. Under Ursula's wing, Alice embarks on a tumultuous, bittersweet and empowering journey to become herself.
Told through letters to Alice's beloved Aunt Esther, "Being Alice" may be fiction, but the experiences and inspirational wisdom within are very real, based on interviews with ten trans and intergendered contributors.
