Alex Bertie’s memoir, Trans Mission: My Quest to a Beard, will be released in November 2017.
Trans Mission: My Quest to a Beard is a book written to accompany that journey. It will go further into detail on stories he has already told in his videos, while also revealing new information and stories never uploaded to the channel. His mum will also be contributing a chapter on how Alex’s transition affected her.
The book’s official description reads: “Being a teenager is difficult enough, but having to go through puberty whilst realising you’re in the wrong body means dealing with a whole new set of problems: bullying, self-doubt, and in some cases facing a physical and medical transition […] Above all, [Alex] will show you that every step in his transition is another step towards happiness.”
This book will show all facets of a young person’s transition, both positive and negative. Some of the topics covered in the book include childhood, puberty, sex, and relationships.
It's an unfiltered recount of my entire transition, both good AND bad. It shows that transitioning is positive but not easy!
