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.

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.
