Alex Gino’s timely — and unique — novel, written for children in grades 4-6, deserves a much wider audience. The New York Times agrees as is evident in its positive review. However, because the title character, George, is a transgender girl, the novel made the American Library Association’s (ALA’s) top ten challenged books list three years running, reaching the #1 spot in 2018. I voraciously read the book in a single day, tears frequently stinging my eyes. Join me in purchasing the book here and gifting it often.
