"My name is Liv (Not Olivia)... I'm not technically a girl.

I'm Transgender. Which is a bit like being a transformer. Only not quite as cool because I probably won't get to save the world one day."

Liv knows he was always meant to be a boy, but with his new school's terrible dress code, he can't even wear pants. Only skirts.

Operation: Pants Project begins The only way for Liv to get what he wants is to go after it himself. But to Liv, this isn't just a mission to change the policy--it's a mission to change his life. And that's a pretty big deal.

"From the start, readers are drawn into the story by 11-year-old Liv's believable, humor-tinged narration...Throughout, Liv's voice is convincing and a pleasure to read...Liv's two moms add further dimension to a tale that unabashedly affirms the importance of accepting and celebrating differences."--Kirkus Reviews, STARRED Review
