Publisher's Summary

At once a love letter and challenge to the traditional transgender memoir, Fierce Femmes and Notorious Liars is a playful, surrealist dance through queer coming of age.

A haunted young girl (who happens to be a kung-fu expert and pathological liar) runs away from an oppressive city, where the sky is always grey, in search of love and sisterhood - and finds herself in a magical place known only as the Street of Miracles. There, she is quickly adopted into a vigilante gang of glamorous warrior femmes called the Lipstick Lacerators, whose mission is to scour the Street of violent men and avenge murdered trans women everywhere. But when disaster strikes, can our intrepid heroine find the truth within herself in order to protect her new family and heal her broken heart?

Full of deeper meanings

I enjoyed this book a lot. But I really wish the author would’ve been the reader for this audible. I think that detracts from the content a little bit but overall good stories with a lot of deeper meanings. Give me a different perspective and I never got bored.

Everything I’ve been looking for

This is an exception piece of literature, amongst my top 10 favorite books of all time, nestled right above 100 Years of Solitude. It’s been everything I’ve ever been longing for from any work, written or otherwise.

Birds of Prey with Transsexuals

A fast, furious collision of darkness and whimsy. Birds of Prey with transsexuals. Could be more energetically read, but the narration does the job.

A lot is made of how this novel abrasively skewers the conventions of transgender autobiographical storytelling, but it has a great deal of affection for the tradition as well. Would recommended reading alongside Janet Mock’s Redefining Realness.

Truth is Beauty and Beauty Truth

This is a a wonderful, inspiring, and immersive novel. The narrator was really good, but pronounces 't's like they are 'd's, which drives me nuts. Even so, I highly recommend this book.

Tough to listen to

It was definitely a struggle to finish this book because the person's voice definitely has some sort of a lisp or perhaps just puts a strong emphasis on the letter "s". With that, this book is rich in descriptive language, but you do get a mix of real life trans stories in a pot of fiction. The fiction doesn't really have guidelines like these "certain people have powers, but others don't" kind of thing which makes certain parts of the story hard to understand.
