Meet groundbreaking Vancouverite and tween extraordinaire, Tru Wilson. She's part of a new generation of empowered trans kids demanding to be heard. Tru became a local hero when she fought the Catholic school system for trans rights...and won.
Until now, Tru's life has been one of love and acceptance. When her mom refuses to let her go on a trip to Cuba out of fear of her safety, Tru is confronted by a sobering reality. The world can be a harsh place.
Listen as Tru learns survival skills from Sahara—a girl once brutally bullied, who grew up to become a beauty queen—and Sacha, a streetwise twenty-something, who survived a tough home life.
