Keeping on posting, this time we're going to look at a slightly more controversial area, books Goodreads has recommended to me based on my "gender bender" shelf. This includes both fanciful stories of boys turning into girls (and vice versa) using impossible means, and realistic stories involving more believable trans people. Not a genre so much as a theme, so most of the recommended works do not themselves have gender bending in them.

As always, comment if you've read any of these or heard interesing buzz. The next shelf is likely to have a bunch of books you should have read; you'll see why when we get there.
