About the Author

Nevo Zisin is a young activist, student, writer and public speaker with a particular focus on issues surrounding gender, sex and sexuality. Assigned female at birth, Nevo has had a complex relationship with gender, transitioning to present as male at the age of 17, undergoing different medical interventions and now identifying outside of a female / male gender binary. They work particularly with children as a youth leader and through running programs and workshops in schools. They are also a contact point in the Jewish community for other children and families confronting issues of gender and sexuality in their own lives. Finding Nevo is their first book.

A great read! It is an interesting story and difficult to put down. This book is especially great for people who identify as transgender, as there are limited resources available in this area. Would definitely recommend.

Enlightening Story from a Talent Young Mind

4

Nevo Zisin's tale of their life's journey so far is an education that many people need to have. Nevo shares hurts, struggles and victories in a very personal yet informative language which feels as though the author is beside you crying, laughing and reminiscing all the memories of their unique life. Nevo is not shy to share about their activism and action within Transgender movement in particular. It is never bashful nor ignorant but embellished with pride and a sense of urgency. Finding Nevo is honest, brutal and encouraging. Read it!

If this book supports those going along the same path as Nevo and helps others empathise with those going through this process, then it has done its job. And done it well. -- Read Plus * Read Plus *
Amid the controversy over the government's Safe Schools program, stories like Nevo Zisin's are crucial in helping us all better understand what it means to be transgender. -- Fiona Capp * The Sydney Morning Herald *
