Staff Reviews


I would recommend George because it allows you to enter the mind of a young transgender kid. This perspective is an uncommon view, so it allows you to read about different feelings. This book took me on an emotional roller coaster as this young child finds a way to express himself to his true self. This is a heartwarming story that I would recommend to ages 9-12. I very much enjoyed stepping inside the point of view of George as a young kid.

Description


A bright, bold debut about a girl who happens to have been born a boy, but refuses to let that stand in the way of her dream.

More than anything else, George wants to play Charlotte in her fourth-grade class’s production of Charlotte's Web. The problem is, her teacher won’t let her, because George is a boy. But George isn't about to let that squash her dream. With the help of her best friend, George must learn to stand up for her wish -- and brave a few bullies along the way.

Transcending all categories and genres, George is a pertinent and poignant middle-grade read for kids of all backgrounds.
