Janet Mock: Surpassing Certainty - What My Twenties Taught Me Book Cover

In Janet Mock’s first book, Redefining Realness, there is a bit of a time jump from chapter 17, when she gets her reassignment surgery, to 2009. In that time period, we miss out on so much. Primarily the years of which Janet’s physical body matched who she mentally and emotionally is. The second round of formative years where a person strips a bit of what they’ve been taught and figure out what can be used to be the adult they want to be.

But, luckily, or maybe for the purpose of a 2nd book, Mock has come out with Surpassing Certainty. A book which seemingly will be dedicated to her 20s and give us everything between the early 00s to likely 2009. The year she met her now husband Aaron Tredwell.
