When she was 14, Aaron Rose Philip published the memoir This Kid Can Fly: It’s About Ability (Not Disability), co-written with Tanya Bolden. Intimate, informative, and overall upbeat, it’s geared for readers ages 8–12. After the book was published, Philip came out as a trans woman, and today she’s a fashion model.
