Author Alex Gino hits it out of the park with George! As Middle School readers enter into the “tween years”, they are likely to relate to the array of emerging self identity emotions. However, as the reader, we are granted privileged access to George and how her desire to be known for her true self is not easy to share. We cheer for George as she executes a master plan to play Charlotte in the class play as a way, she believes, will allow everyone to see her as herself. In George, Gino brings George’s experience what it is like for her to be a transgender child into a conversational and relatable place for young people. I highly recommend it to anyone who works with young people. George will be an asset to the middle school learning experience on many levels.
