Tomboy Survival Guide
Coyote’s engaging memoir traces life as a tomboy growing up in the Yukon, and later living in Vancouver, through the eyes of a gender non-conforming person who gradually comes to accept who they really are. Coyote’s coming-of-age story explores relatable topics of the difficulties of growing up, challenging gender norms, gender identity, perseverance, embracing diversity, navigating life’s ups and downs, relationships, love, loss, grief, acceptance of others, and self-acceptance. The conversational writing style, beautifully descriptive passages, illustrations, songs and poems will engage senior students as they follow Coyote’s journey of self-acceptance.
