Fan Wall. Login To Post Content. E eu sou extremamente apaixonada pelos seus livros. Dear Mr. Nelle Harper Lee. Although that did not happen, the trip, making stops along the way with friends, family and tourist traps, I truly felt the presence of such an awe-inspiring woman!
I collect first edition, first printing books of my favorite authors, but only in hardcover format. Many of my books are signed, usually in person. I used to lend out my "library", which unfortunately finds me in an awkward moment. You see, I buy 2 books at the same time of contemporary authors like yourself. One to preserve, the other to read. I have created a One my collection. Comparto una foto con mi novia. Especially The Notebook!!! Just a smidgen of my Nicholas Sparks Collection.
Dear Nicholas Sparks, you deserve all the good things in the world. I love you so deeply. All your stories made me cry.

They mean so much to me. I was in depression because of my ex and I was lost. I started to read your books and watch your films and I'm okay now because of them. You saved me, I'm really thankful for that. Love you! I never liked books as much as yours.

I want to be a writer. Your books inspire me. Sparks, I want to thank you. I have been a fan since practically day one, okay I guess I should say since fall of and I have read everything you've written. The Notebook is by far my favorite, read over and over again and listened to and The Longest Ride has become a very close second.

Of course all in between have been wonderful including Three Weeks with My Brother. I want to share a quick story My 19 year old daughter and I went to see your "live in theater" interview for Safe Haven and we loved it!! This is the story of a boy, David, who, because of a surgical accident as an infant, lost his penis and was raised a girl until he was 13 or The gender reassignment never worked on him: he was always aggressive, butch, eschewed "feminine" things, etc. He never felt like a girl and when he finally found out the truth, he felt like everything finally made sense.
The book is well written and very interesting. It doe It is not often I can say a book turned my world view on edge but this one did. It doesn't just focus on his life but spends quite a bit of time talking about gender reassignment research, the lives and opinions of intersex hermaphrodite people who were raised as a different gender than they ended up adopting, the politics involved with gender reassignment at the time of this incident, and biological theories of gender.
The author appears to try to be objective but the horror of what this boy went through is so pronounced, it's hard for Colapinto to remain neutral. He very much makes the psychiatrist, John Money, who initially recommended the gender reassignment into Dr. Evil and, if the text is correct, it certainly is good and just that he does. If everything in the book is true, I don't know why Money isn't in jail for child endangerment and pedophilia. So why did this book set my worldview asunder? Because I was raised to believe that I am more than my genitalia, that I am capable of doing and being anything I want to be.
Just because I'm female doesn't mean that I will like makeup or dresses. Just because someone is male doesn't mean they will be aggressive and like sports. I grew up believing that the only differences between boys and girls was a matter of size, musculature and genitalia.

But this book talked about the research that shows that just small amounts of testosterone introduced into the uterus during pregnancy can make a girl much more aggressive, masculine and even gay. This boy always felt wrong, never felt like a girl, even though he was told he was one. I've always felt like a girl, even when I hated wearing dresses.
I hate makeup and have never had any desire to join a sorority or be like Barbie. But I am also not violent or aggressive in any way. And I am bisexual. So what makes a woman a woman and a man a man? It's more than muscles and it's more than genitalia. But it's apparently at least partially rooted in biology and genetics. So I am propelled to do more reading in this area, especially on the subject of transexuals and intersexuals. It's definitely food for thought.

I didn't find this book to be riveting in the writing style - it can be rather dry and there are parts that drag on a bit. But it is a fascinating true story about identical twin boys who, because of a circumcision gone horribly wrong, are raised as brother and sister. The ego of Dr.

John Money is infuriating and it is frustrating just how he managed to get all these cases of sex reassignment. I find it baffling that all these parents would let their children have these yearly therapy sessions wi I didn't find this book to be riveting in the writing style - it can be rather dry and there are parts that drag on a bit. I find it baffling that all these parents would let their children have these yearly therapy sessions with this nut without oversight, especially when the children were all vocal about not wanting to go and would get more nervous about meeting with the man as they grew older.
People - listen to your children!!! They are the experts of themselves! There are just two other parts that I have to write about. The first is that there seems to be confusion on the part of the author in the difference between gender identity the gender you perceive yourself to be and sexual orientation the gender you are sexually attracted to. The author doesn't seem to understand that these two things are not related.
The other thing I want to comment on is the underlying belief that all these children have to suffer the taunting of their school peers. Children do NOT have to suffer this kind of cruelty! Do whatever you have to do to keep your children home if society cannot accept them for who they are. Let them develop their sense of self without cruel children telling them they are a freak. I came away from this book with a strong belief that intersexed children should remain as they were born until they decide that they want to do something about it.
But they need the full support of their parents to be able to develop into who they are meant to be without the taunting and teasing of people who think everyone must be the same well, they can be a boy or a girl, but beyond that the girls all must be the same and the boys must all be the same. I also came away with a slight fear of "experts".
