Description


A bright, bold debut about a girl who happens to have been born a boy, but refuses to let that stand in the way of her dream. More than anything else, George wants to play Charlotte in her fourth-grade class"s production of Charlotte's Web. The problem is, her teacher won"t let her, because George is a boy. But George isn't about to let that squash her dream. With the help of her best friend, George must learn to stand up for her wish -- and brave a few bullies along the way. Transcending all categories and genres, George is a pertinent and poignant middle-grade read for kids of all backgrounds.;* This is a brave and necessary choice for the school library. Not only does this book fill a niche that is much needed, but it is an amazing story of friendship and a tribute to how we should be living our lives: authentically." -- School Library Journal, starred review;Alex Gino loves glitter, ice cream, gardening, awe-ful puns, and stories that reflect the diversity and complexity of being alive.
