A 10-year-old transgender person struggles to come out to her family and people at school until her best friend has the idea of using the class play as a format for it
When people look at George, they think they see a boy. But she knows she's not a boy. She knows she's a girl.
George thinks she'll have to keep this a secret forever. Then her teacher announces that their class play is going to be Charlotte's Web. George really, really, REALLY wants to play Charlotte.
But the teacher says she can't even try out for the part... because she's a boy.
NOTE : US spellings and terminology throughout
NOTE : Due to the fact the main character is discovering their sexuality and learning what transgender means this title has been classed as young teen, however the character's age is 10-years-old; some customers may feel they can shelve in junior fiction or give to 9+ readers as suitable resource material for this sensitive topic
NOTE : Author has presented George's point of view as feminine with appropriate pronouns because although born into a boy's body she identifies herself as a girl
NOTE : The class bully calls George a 'freak' and later punches George in the stomach which causes her to vomit
NOTE : Brief references to the operation some transgender people have to remove a penis
