The trangender prisoner shows up after Piper in the book. In the TV show she is already there.

In the book Martha Stuart has not yet gone to prison and has requested the prison that Piper is in. In the TV show (at least according to the pilot) Martha Stuart has already gone to prison and Pipers soon to be mother in law mentions Martha Stuarts advice on prison.
