Description

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.

Review quote

* "A coda to the Charlotte's Web story, in which George presents herself as a girl for the first time, is deeply moving in its simplicity and joy. Warm, funny, and inspiring." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* "Profound, moving, and--as Charlotte would say--radiant, this book will stay with anyone lucky enough to find it." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review
