“My name is Liv (Not Olivia) … I’m not technically a girl.

“I’m transgender. Which is a bit like being a transformer. Only not quite as cool because I probably won’t get to save the world one day.”

Liv knows he was always meant to be a boy, but with his new school’s terrible dress code, he can’t even wear pants. Only skirts.

Operation Pants Project begins! The only way for Liv to get what he wants is to go after it himself. But to Liv, this isn’t just a mission to change the policy―it’s a mission to change his life. And that’s a pretty big deal.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Clarke artfully twists together LGBTQ concerns and disability issues with self-esteem, respect, and compassion. This book is a current-day Beverly Cleary or Judy Blume, delving into issues faced by kids, like bullying and tolerance, but with an issue experienced by many kids today.”

    San Francisco Book Review

  • “Without a doubt, The Pants Project is a good book, for kids or adults. It’s also a great reminder that adolescence is hard, kids are mean, support is key—and it’s all wrapped up in a wise, self-aware preteen you’ll enjoy meeting.”

    South Florida Gay News

  • “A tale that unabashedly affirms the importance of accepting and celebrating differences…A fine addition to LGBTQ children’s literature.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “A wonderfully sweet middle grade story with a satisfying ending…The hopeful tone makes it easier for readers to grapple with the serious issues discussed, and the happy-ever-after ending will not fail to satisfy.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Liv is the perfect hero…Through The Pants Project, Liv learns important lessons about friendship and the importance of staying true to yourself—takeaways every kid can relate to.”

    M. G. Hennessey, author of the critically acclaimed Other Boy

  • The Pants Project gently and humorously reminds readers that being just like everyone else isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.”

    Ami Polonsky, author of Gracefully Grayson

  • One of Kirkus Reviews’ Best Books of 2017
