George is a sweet and unassuming story about a kid who just wants to be accepted and known openly for who they are. It shows the strength of true friendship, and the importance of loving yourself no matter what other people think of you. I love this little book, and ten-year-old George's experiences immediately pulled at all my heartstrings. It's sincere, unique, and I couldn't help but read it in one sitting.

What do you go through when you have the mind and soul of a girl, but the physical body of a boy? In George, we meet a girl going through that very struggle. This is such an important book because it's one that can help bridge the gap when it comes to the conversation of both transgender and gender identity issues. Additionally, it's a great book for kids who may be going through a similar experience to George, and could potentially help them feel like they are not alone in the world. To put it simply, this book gives me hope for the future, and anyone, no matter where they may fall on the gender spectrum will be able to root for George!

Description


When people look at George, they think they see a boy. But she knows she's not a boy. She knows she's a girl.
George thinks she'll have to keep this a secret forever. Then her teacher announces that their class play is going to be Charlotte's Web. George really, really, REALLY wants to play Charlotte. But the teacher says she can't even try out for the part . . . because she's a boy.
With the help of her best friend, Kelly, George comes up with a plan. Not just so she can be Charlotte -- but so everyone can know who she is, once and for all.
