The subject has always fascinated me. I did some research once to see how the body parts were changed. Boy, you'd really have to want the change badly to go through that. If no one takes the Mom, I Need To Be A Girl book when I've finished some of what I'm working on, I'll take it. I see there's a new edition that was published Dec. 19, 2007, by "Just Evelyn," rather than Evelyn Lindenmuth. There is no copy in my library. Hopefully there will be at some point, because, like you, I think there are library patrons who would like to read such a book.
