WHY I READ THIS IS HOW IT ALWAYS IS
Our Virtual Book Club Facebook Group chose this book in an online vote. This book has been on my to-read list since it came out in 2017. The My Purse Strings Virtual Book Club ran from 2018 to 2020. What started as an outlet to discuss books and to motivate me to read has turned into a Facebook Group where we recommend our favorite books, discuss what we’re currently reading, and I share the newest blog posts, product reviews, wellness tips, and more.
Check out my free downloadable Books Club Questions for “This Is How It Always Is” at the end of this post!
Discover what I’m reading, read product reviews, learn wellness tips, and more through the MyPurseStrings Favorite Things Facebook Group.
What is This Is How It Always Is About?
This book tells the story of how a family deals when their youngest of five sons, Claude, would rather be a girl.
Rather than sharing this with the world, the family decides to keep it a secret.
While this is technically a fictional novel, the author, Laurie Frankel, has lived through this subject matter. She is the parent of a transgender child. You can listen to the NPR interview with the author here.
