Imagine what it would be like to grow up feeling like you didn't fit in, you didn't belong, or worse still - you felt there was something wrong with you. A Cut Closer to Whole is the inspiring story of a girl named Susan who faces the challenges of being 'different' in a world that is not always kind.
Whilst striving to make sense of her life, she struggles with depression, self-harm, emotional and sexual abuse. Despite hardships that would defeat many people, Susan works through issues of sexuality and gender, taking a journey that will finally lead to self-discovery and acceptance - revealing his true identity as Ben.
'People need to know that the book isn't just about one man's journey to find his identity. It's about what happens on that journey and we can all learn something from it'. - K. Hoge, Chicago
