“Janet does what only great writers of autobiography accomplish—she tells a story of the self, which turns out to be a reflection of all humanity. You will be changed by this book.”
Redefining Realness: My Path to Womanhood, Identity, Love & So Much More is my story of growing up as a trans girl. It celebrates self-actualization and self-love! It’s the first memoir from a young trans woman and it debuted on the New York Times bestsellers list!

“Courageous! Told with a spirit of raw honesty that moves beyond confession to redemptive revelation, this book is a life map for transformation—for changing minds.”
—bell hooks, author of All About Love
“Redefining Realness is loving, searing, and true.”
—Jennifer Finney Boylan, New York Times bestselling author of She’s Not There
“Of the book’s many strengths, the most notable is its political bite. Mock defies the historically apolitical confines of the transgender memoir…[and] take[s] the uninitiated, non-transgender reader with her.”
“Redefining Realness is a classic American autobiography. Like Richard Wright and Maya Angelou, Janet Mock brings us into a world we may not know and with breathtaking insight, courage, and masterful craft makes her story universal.”
—Barbara Smith, author of The Truth That Never Hurts
“Redefining Realness is a riveting, emotional, crisply written testimony. I couldn’t put it down. I aspire to be as unflinchingly brave! Janet Mock’s story simultaneously embodies, complicates and subverts the concept of American exceptionalism and self-creation.”
—Laverne Cox, star of Orange Is the New Black
