Janet Mock’s follow up to her first memoir (Redefining Realness) is just as powerful, and as you would expect, more sharply focused. In this book, Mock picks up where she left off in Redefining Realness and tells the story of her twenties – how she left Hawaii, her first love, finding her tribe in New York City, and navigating her career. In large part, this is a book about Mock’s first marriage, her first love. It’s honest and raw in a way about that relationship in a way that is rare and special. Although their relationship doesn’t last, it’s clearly a critical one for Mock, even years after its end. This book shows how deeply important and formative this relationship was, and Mock masterfully writes about the beginning fireworks phase as well as the slow, agonizing end. I highly recommend this one, especially to those who felt that Redefining Realness was a bit slow and circuitous at times – this book has a point, and Mock is laser-focused.
