Every boy deserves to feel free to express their emotions and be completely themselves without apology.

Be Your Own Man encourages boys and men to embrace their vulnerability and put their hand up for help.

The concept of self-love is introduced and boys are shown through a diverse representation of bodies, ethnicities and abilities that all bodies are good bodies. 

Be Your Own Man seeks to dissolve the toxic parts of the traditional masculine identity to make way for a new generation of boys who feel free to be who they truly are. In this book, Jess seeks to normalise 'softer' behaviours — such as sensitivity, creativity, asking for help and caring for others as valuable and essential human traits.

We also love that Be Your Own Man offers a diverse cast of unique but relatable characters, each depicting a wide range of cultural backgrounds, abilities, and behaviours.
