When Wayne and Kelly Maines adopted identical twin boys, they thought their lives were complete. But it wasn't long before they noticed a marked difference between Jonas and his brother, Wyatt. Jonas made a beeline for sports and trucks and many of the things little boys were "supposed" to like, whereas Wyatt preferred dolls and dressing-up and playing Little Mermaid. By the time the twins were toddlers, confusion over Wyatt's insistence that he was female began to tear the family apart.Becoming Nicole chronicles a journey that could have destroyed a family but, over time, made them stronger than ever. It's the story of a mother whose instincts told her that her child needed support and not disapproval; of a conservative, army-veteran father who overcame his deepest fears to love his new daughter without condition; and of a town forced to confront its prejudices and light the way forward on a defining civil issue. More than anything, however, Becoming Nicole is the story of an extraordinary girl who fought for the right to be her ordinary self.
