Amanda Hardy is the new girl in school in Lambertville, Tennessee. Like anyone else, she wants to make friends and fit in. But Amanda has a secret. She’s determined not to get too close to anyone.

But when she meets sweet, easygoing Grant, she can’t help but let him in. As they spend more time together, she realizes just how much she is losing by guarding her heart. She finds herself yearning to share with Grant everything about herself—including her past. But Amanda’s terrified that once she tells the truth, no one will be able to see past it.

Because the secret that Amanda’s been keeping? At her old school, she used to be Andrew.

If I Was Your Girl is a universal story about feeling different—and a love story that everyone will root for.

  • “Russo has written a story that many trans teens—and adults—have been wanting: a sweet, believable romance that stokes the fires of hope without devolving into saccharine perfection or horrific tragedy…This is a necessary, universal story about feeling different and enduring prejudices, and it’s full of love, hope, engaging writing, and truth.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Narrator Samia Mounts…eloquently depicts the changes that take place after Andrew’s surgery—when he becomes Amanda….[and] expresses the delight Amanda feels as girlfriends accept her…Mounts provides a bittersweet tone as Amanda blossoms with the tender feelings of first love even as she fears revealing her secret. Her feelings are juxtaposed with her father’s fear for her safety amid the narrow-mindedness of the small Southern town where they live, which Mounts suggests through the judicious use of regional accents. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award.”
