'Important and brave. Read this wonderful book, just read it.' -- Jennifer Niven, author of All the Bright Places

My name is Amanda. I’m 18. When you look at me, you might see that I’m pretty and popular; you might think my life is easy. But being me has never been easy. Because I haven’t always been Amanda. When I was born, I was named Andrew. Now, at my new school, I finally feel like myself. But do I owe my new friends the truth about my past?
Based on the authors own experience, this is an honest and deeply moving look at what it means to be different in high school. Amanda is a heroine that every girl can relate to and who everyone will be rooting for.

Review quote

'Important and brave. Read this wonderful book, just read it.' - Jennifer Niven, author of All the Bright Places; 'There aren't that many novels with trans teenagers as protagonists, but there should be, especially at this moment in our cultural history... This debut, written by a trans woman, might just open some minds.' - Flavorwire; 'I've heard so many good things about this already. I am really intrigued to read it.' - The Overflowing Library

About Meredith Russo

Meredith Russo was born, raised and lives in Tennessee. She started living as her true self in late 2013 and never looked back. If I Was Your Girl was partially inspired by her experiences as a trans woman. Like Amanda, Meredith is a gigantic nerd who spends a lot of her time obsessing over video games and Star Wars.
