I Wish You All the Best by Mason Deaver

I’m choosing to respect the main character pronouns in this review, because as a transgender myself, I know how painful it is to be misgendered day in and day out. At the start of this book, Ben comes out to their parents as non-binary. All that they were told is to leave. So they had to go with only the clothes on their back. They found a home with their sister and her husband.

Hannah, (their sister) offered Ben therapy, but she didn’t force it on them, which is the best thing to do when it comes to therapy for it to work. Something that made this book real for me is the anxiety and gender dysphoria. I have both and like in Ben’s case, and mine, gender dysphoria and anxiety are connected. I love Hannah’s character and the way she and her husband dealt with everything and helped Ben out when they needed the same.

I Wish You All the Best came out this month and was in the list for my most anticipated book of 2019 and it didn’t disappoint because it was everything I wanted and more. I gave it a five out of five stars.
