If I was Your Girl - Book Review

Book Review: If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo

When her Grandmother's prediction for her death date comes true, Rory starts a countdown to her own death and starts trying to live life to the full.

I’ve had this book for a while, and I put of reading it for some time. Mostly because I’ve become very wary about books focused on being transgender. Not because the stories are bad, or unimportant.

There was no architectural plan, which led to makeshift buildings being thrown up without a proper plan. The result was a haven of drug lords, poverty and a home for black markets and brothels.The Walled City is based entirely on this premise.
