Asterisk's son, Franklin, comes out as transgender and gaining her mother's full support they seek therapy and support groups to offset the disapproval and bullying "Rosie" receives from classmates and other family members. When Asterisk meets Vivian, a punk rock transgender woman, she believes she's found the perfect mentor for her daughter and lover for herself. A hot love affair quickly reveals Vivian's true nature and the sparks fly between Rosie and Vivian, while Asterisk tries to referee. A sometimes horrible, sometimes funny, sometimes hard to believe relationship develops that threatens to destroy the household. Vivian's psychological issues create serious problems for the mother and daughter as Asterisk struggles with her own demons. Is Vivian a wolf in women's clothing after all? Can Asterisk and Rosie survive her "moments?"
Aside from the oft-times hilarious dialogs and situations, and serious social issues that thousands of transgender and homosexual people encounter daily, A Wolf in Women's Clothing by Wendi Marie Bear is an educational and true to life account of the morals and divergent opinions of Americans regarding sexuality and gender in America today. I learned more about transgender trials and tribulations, hormone treatments, psychological issues, etc. in this tragically funny work of fiction than from any other "factual" or personal source. Bear writes with authority coupled with a sense of humor and a writing style that is immediately attractive and entertaining. Her characters are completely relatable, the situations clearly defined and true to life. This is a quick, hard to put down read guaranteed to get you laughing, crying, or screaming at the insanity of it all. I loved it and look forward to reading more stories from Wendi Marie Bear.
