Description

George joins the Scholastic Gold line, which features award-winning and beloved novels. Includes exclusive bonus content!

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.

From Publishers Weekly

May 11, 2015 – Though others see her as male, 10-year-old George has long known that she is a girl, and she longs for people to see that truth, even while the idea terrifies her. When George's fourth-grade class has tryouts for a school production of Charlotte's Web, George desperately wants to play Charlotte, a character she adores. George's teacher doesn't allow to George to audition for the part, but her supportive best friend Kelly, who is cast as Charlotte, comes up with a plan that may give George the chance she needs. The taunts of a school bully, George's self-doubts, and her mother's inability to truly hear what George is telling her carry real weight as debut author Gino's simple, direct writing illuminates George's struggles and quiet strength. George's joy during stolen moments when she can be herself will resonate with anyone who has felt different, while providing a necessary window into the specific challenges of a child recognizing that they are transgender. Profound, moving, and as Charlotte would say radiant, this book will stay with anyone lucky enough to find it. Ages 8 12.

Very good book

Very good book

An important book for our times

Heartbreaking to see and hear about transgender / LBGTQ kids living in the shadows in our communities out of fear. Let’s use this book to start the conversation about kindness and inclusion and accelerate acceptance for the LGBTQ community. No kid deserves to be bullied or attacked or to feel depression and shame around their gender identity - something they can not control. Let’s lead with love and compassion and teach our kids to do the same 💕

This book was filled with excitement and joy. Some parts of the book are sad but at the same time make me squirm in my seat making me wonder what is going to happen next.
