Title: Surpassing Certainty (What my Twenties Taught Me)
Author: Janet Mock
In the YP Library? Yes! 1 Copy

Synopsis: Long before she became one of the world’s most respected media figures and lauded leaders for equality and justice, Janet was a girl taking the time she needed to just be—to learn how to advocate for herself before becoming an advocate for others. As you witness Janet’s slow-won success and painful failures, Surpassing Certainty will embolden you, shift the way you see others, and affirm your journey in search of self.

“Mock centers her own sex-positive, black, feminist, transgender experience and holds up a mirror for other black transgender women rarely reflected in the mainstream” – Quartz

Why we love it:
“You should read this – everybody should read this  – because it’s Janet Mock and she’s amazing” -Skye, YP Staff
