Finding Nevo

Nevo Zisin

Nevo was not born in the wrong body. Nevo just wants everyone to catch up with all that Nevo is.

Personal, political and passionate, Finding Nevo is an autobiography about gender and everything that comes with it.


This is a thoughtful and timely personal memoir by a young Melbourne author and activist about their sexuality and nonbinary gender identity. Nevo was a tomboy during primary school and identified as a lesbian during high school, before coming out as transgender.

At 20, Nevo is constructively self-reflective when writing about relationships with their family, friendships, bullying, mental health and their place within both the Jewish and queer communities. They discuss their transitioning processes, such as obtaining and taking testosterone, and their identity outside of a female/male gender binary. Although this book will be of particular interest to queer and/or gender-questioning young people, Nevo’s story is impactful and it’s an enriching, worthwhile read for a much wider audience. For young adult readers.
