George stopped. It was such a short, little question, but she couldn’t make her mouth form the sounds.
Mom, what if I’m a girl?
This might be the most important novel released this year. George is a sensitive, honest, and much-needed story about a girl who - biologically - was born as a boy.

This year, only two books have made me cry so hard I had to stop reading. This was one of them.
But it's not because it's sad--it's actually a sweet, hopeful book filled with the ordinary joys of childhood. It's more the understanding of how isolated the Georges of the world must feel, and the hop...

I honestly could not give this book any less than 5 stars. It was beautiful and heartwarming. I felt so much for George and really connected to her.

I think I'll be filming a video review about this one, so I'll keep it brief: This was fantastic. The writing was a bit too simple for my taste (it's written for children, so it makes sense) but other than that it was perfect.

I want to hug this book. I also want to hug George. Not only is this middle grade book heart-warming and engaging, it’s also eye-opening and important. Sadly, there are few books out there for children with transsexual characters, let alone main characters.
This book and GRACEFULLY GRAYSON are ver...

omgggg I AM HAVING AN EMOTION. Maybe even two emotions (which is a lot for my Vulcan soul). George is a downright adorable and heartwarming book. I wasn't sure if I'd like it purely because I usually struggle with being engaged with MG, but the voice and writing were PERFECT and the story was com...
