A recent widow raising her 14-year-old daughter in a small, conservative Texas town, Trish works at a nearby hospital and cherishes her church, her home, and everything else she can count on in a world she now finds herself alone in. Then suddenly she faces a crisis she never saw coming: her beloved teenage daughter announces she is gender queer, and that she’s starting a chapter of the Gay and Straight Alliance at the local high school. Trish has no frame of reference for this information; like many people in her world, transgender people and issues simply aren’t on her radar. How can she possibly be forced to choose sides?
