And She Was
Jessica Verdi | Young Adult Author

And She Was by Jessica VerdiDara’s lived a sheltered life with her single mom, Mellie. Now, at eighteen, she’s dreaming of more. When Dara digs up her never-before-seen birth certificate, her world implodes. Why are two strangers listed as her parents?

Dara confronts her mother, and is stunned by what she learns: Mellie is transgender. The unfamiliar name listed under “father”? That’s her. She transitioned when Dara was a baby, shortly after Dara’s birth mother died. She changed her name, started over. Dara still has more questions than answers, though.

Reeling, she sets off on an impromptu road trip with her best guy friend, Sam, in tow. She is determined to find the extended family she’s never even met. What she does discover—and what her mother reveals, piece by piece over emails—will challenge and change Dara more than she can imagine.

Acclaimed author Jessica Verdi has crafted a gorgeous, timely, and essential novel about secrets, trust, hope—and the importance of being our true selves.
