"This Is How It Always Is" by @laurie.frankel
). * The October 2018 selection for @reesesbookclubxhellosunshine.
* This is the tale of Poppy, a young transgender child who knows she is female despite being born male. * It's also the story of a marriage, of a family who wants the best for one another, and society. * It certainly deals with tough times but also deals with the fact that there are good people in the world. Not everyone is angry, not all of us are shallow enough to believe that what we see in the mirror is how everyone should be too. There are, in fact, millions of us who can love and support others - without consideration. * Books like this are a perfect reason why we read: to learn, to empathize, to see through someone else's eyes and know each of us is in this together. Real lives, lives that want to be happy, to live, to have everything intended for them just as it should be for anyone on this lonely rock. * Courage is picking up a book that makes you think beyond what you know, to ask questions rather than heading to conclusions or anger. Courage is knowing our humanity is never more than one separate person away and loving them despite our differences * Thank you for choosing this month's book @reesewitherspoon
, I think a lot of people could benefit from reading it. Very topical. * #bookstagram #instabooks #books #thisishowitalwaysis #lauriefrankel #book
