A heartwarming transgender love story, based on true events!

A diary comic with an upbeat, adorable flair that tells the charming tale of Chii, a woman assigned male at birth.

Now, Chii is about to embark on a new adventure: becoming a bride!

Praise for The Bride Was a Boy

"Equal parts Trans 101 and tear-jerking rom-com, there’s no other manga quite like this fun (and revolutionary) book." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)
