Publisher's Description

Where does a firstborn girl fit in a world dominated by men?

When Tiadone was born, her parents had two choices: leave their daughter outside the community to die in the wilds, or raise her as male and force her to suppress all feminine traits. Now, as the first female living as male in her village, Tiadone must prove her father didn’t make a mistake by letting her live.

As her male initiation approaches, Tiadone knows every eye on the community is on her, and desperately wishes to belong and finally be accepted. But at every step, traditional feminine gifts and traits emerge, and the bird she’s been twined with is seen as a sign of evil.

Worse, as Tiadone completes her rites, she finds she is drawn to her male best friend in ways that are very much in line with the female gender.

Confused and desperate, Tiadone tries to become what she must be while dealing with what she indeed has become: a young woman who may be able to stand up to her despotic rulers and uncover her real purpose in life.

AudioFile

In a harsh society in which the R'Tan natives are subservient to the Madronians, Tiadone has been declared male--because that's the only way to save firstborn daughters, such as she, from infanticide. Jorjeana Marie does a suitable job narrating as Tiadone approaches her adolescence and all the accompanying changes to her life. The harsh desert setting of Tiadone's year serving on border patrol and her struggles to help her people overcome the Madronians' religious and political oppression make for a promising story. But this audio version emphasizes the author's purple prose and calls attention to the discrepancy between Tiadone's young age and her sexually charged reactions to her best friend, Ratho. J.M.
