In the summer of 2015, former US Marine and world record weightlifter Matt Kroczaleski was publicly outed as transgender. The reaction was universal: her sponsors abandoned her, she was disowned by her parents, and banned from competing. Now Janae, she must find her place in society, unable to lose the muscle she once so desperately gained and living one day as an alpha male and the next day as a delicate girl. Will Janae’s passage from being a male bring the peace she’s looking for?
