Run Clarissa Run was a very in-depth, inept telling of a transgender male named Clark. He can remember since the time he was four having a dream of being a woman and finally being happy. I can honestly say this was a great read! It was interesting, the plot was unpredictable but concise and most importantly there was a true, honest, inner dialogue from someone who is transgender. It touched on topics everyone can relate to: bullying, High School drama, identity issues and adolescent sexuality. I felt like Clark was my friend. I found myself turning the page, ready for more!
I felt for his abuse from peers and the misunderstandings from his mother and brother. I cheered for him when he finally stood up for hisself! I don’t care if you’re a mans man, jock, nerd, pretty girl, whatever I recommend you read this book! I finished thinking pretty deeply. The best book provokes thought! I will MOST CERTAINLY be reading more works of Racheal Eliason! Looking forward to reviewing more of her work. Go check it out. TTTTRRRUUUSSSSTTTT me. Don’t be put off because it’s about a transgender book. Seriously, you need to read this book.
