Cheryl Evans and her husband Jim raised their children telling them: “You can be anything and do anything you want in life.” They just never expected to learn that what their youngest daughter desired most in the world was to be a boy. Experience this powerful, raw and, deeply personal story as one family invites you to bear witness as they support their transgender child’s transition from female to male.
While I Promised Not to Tell will help enlighten anyone interested in this topic it is especially valuable for a parent, relative or friend of a gender-questioning or transgender person. Truly it is a book that should be read by every human being. It is a genuine, heartfelt and unforgettable LGBT parenting memoir.
A wonderfully written and thought-provoking true story that transitions beautifully between the family’s personal journey and some of the larger societal issues that face the transgender community today.
While I Promised Not to Tell may not be as heavy on the science as some other books, (the author covers that in her 2nd book: What Does God Think?), this transgender book delves deeply into the social, emotional and surgical side of the transgender journey.

Even if you don’t know a transgender person this book will make you feel as if you do. One Amazon reviewer even said: “By the end of the book I felt like I had become part of the family.”
If you are a transgender person, this book might be an excellent way to introduce the topic to parents and loved ones. Coming out can be a scary time and this book may help make your experience a little easier. Perhaps even pave the way to acceptance and understanding.

“How does it work? From the outside to the inside? And how should I eat these prawns without half of it falling off?” Don’t worry, you’re not alone. We’re all in the same boat. Who would still remember how to behave yourself at the table?! Well, with this book you’ll have an overview about the do’s and don’ts at the table.
First, we’ll give you a glimpse into the preparation. For example, do you know how to plan a menu for ten people? Also, ‘The dinner etiquette: Everyone can set the table’ has all the information about how to set the table. Setting it and decorating it are both equally important.
The category ‘The art of eating’ gives us answers to all the questions we’ve had flying around in our heads. There is a way to eat spaghetti without having tomato sauce all over you and well tell you how!
We’ll also explain what the prayer is all about and how kids should behave, as well as problems that lefties could encounter. Nobody should say that eating is easy! It’s the exact opposite, but with this book you’ll have the perfect helper and are guaranteed to make a fabulous impression!

In this sense – Bon appetite!
