Rachel Gold is the award-winning author of Just Girls and Being Emily, the first young adult novel to tell the story of a trans girl from her perspective. Penny Mickelbury says that “young teens gravitate to Rachel Gold’s novels with good reason: she gets them.” Her latest work, In the Silences, tackles issues of gender and racial identities through the relationship between Kaz and Aisha.
