                                                                            The personal story of a little girl (Emma) growing up with two grandmas (one of which is Larissa Russell), who are gay. 

This book is to help Emma explain her family to her friends at school in hopes of making them understand. We hope this helps other kids in similar situations understand they are not alone.
A portion of funds raised will go to Queer Voicez, an organization to help the LGBT+ community have a voice so that we can help eliminate LGBT+ youth suicide.
