According to People magazine, Oklahoma teens Katie Hill and Arin Andrews, who are transgender and were in a relationship with each other during their transitions, will share their stories in two memoirs to be published Sept. 30, 2014, by Simon and Schuster Books for Young Readers. The book covers, revealed today, are above.
Katie Hill told People, "I don’t want this book to just appeal to transgender people or their allies. I want people to understand that there really is no such thing as normal."
I don’t know a lot about this couple but woohoo more YA books by trans people!
boom! both of these went on my goodreads list immediately
1.) There are some amazing Michigan companies that make veg friendly products. I thought the convention would feature some of the big brand names like Daiya or Earth Balance but instead the center was packed with local Michigan companies. Who knew there are so many fabulous companies right here?
2.) I will never be a juicer. The really pure, fresh juices just do not do it for me. If I wanted to eat cucumber I would do it, not juice it.
3.) I have been tasting many plant based cheeses trying to figure out which ones work and which ones are best left on the shelf. At the con I had the pleasure of trying Tease nacho flavored cheese melted on a corn chip. It was pure heaven! It was the same heavenly taste and sensation of going to a gas station to get a tub of cheese and chips and I am gonna give the tease brand some more attention now.
4.) I really did love most of the products I saw and if money was not an issue I would have walked out with a bag bursting full of goodies. As much as I would love to be able to stock my pantry with all of these specialized products many are still out of price range and the way to live cheaply on a vegan budget is still to stick to simpler items.
5.) There were so many beautiful lady vegheads there! From the vendors to the convention goers they came in every shape and size. It really highlighted how people who are drawn to the vegan/vegetarian lifestyle come from every type of background and social class.
