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.

About the Author

Alex Gino loves glitter, ice cream, gardening, awe-ful puns, and stories that reflect the diversity and complexity of being alive. Born and raised on Staten Island, NY, they are prouder of graduating from Stuyvesant High School than from the University of Pennsylvania. They have been involved with queer and trans activism for twenty years, and currently serve on the Board of Directors of NOLOSE, an all-volunteer body-positive organization committed to fat, queer, feminist, anti-oppression ideology. Having moved across the country in an old RV during the summer of 2008, they enjoy the heck out of living in Oakland, California.
