George is a typical 4th grader who wants a part in the school play. But George has a secret. She is a girl in a boy’s body. She and her best friend Kelly hatch a plan to get George the coveted girl’s role in the play and convince everyone to accept her as she is. This is an incredibly tender and realistic portrayal of gender identity. Readers will root for George and Kelly as George tries to gain acceptance and understanding from her peers, teachers and family.  (Vermont DCF Book Award 2017)
