Transcends the typical 'issue' novel to be a beautiful tale in its own right." --School Library Journal, SLJ Popular Pick "Amanda's story is neither overly sentimental nor didactic. A thoughtful, truthful, and much needed coming-of-age tale." --Horn Book Review "Russo, a trans woman, writes with authority and empathy, giving readers not only an intellectual but also an emotional understanding of Amanda and her compelling story. Never didactic, this debut is a valuable contribution to the slender but growing body of literature of trans teens." --ALA Booklist "Beautiful, smart, and so urgently needed, If I Was Your Girl should be required reading for every teen--scratch that, every person--in America. This book is exactly what YA is for: to break ground, to break hearts, to teach us empathy, to find the universal in the specific. I loved every word. You will too." --Julie Buxbaum, New York Times bestselling author of Tell Me Three Things "Poignant and rare. If I Was Your Girl is the type of book you read and want to immediately share, because it's too important to keep to yourself." --Julie Murphy, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Dumplin' "If I Was Your Girl is important and necessary and brave, and deeply, electrically inspiring. Read this wonderful book. Just read it." --Jennifer Niven, New York Times bestselling author of All the Bright Places "If I Was Your Girl will change minds and open hearts." --Nina Lacour, critically acclaimed author of Everything Leads to You "If I Was Your Girl is real and raw and layered and wonderful." --Alex Gino, Stonewall Award-winning author of George "If there's any justice in the world, we're all witnessing a YA powerhouse in the making." --Forever YA "Pure magic." --Book Riotshow more
