Recommended for Readers
in Grades 5 and up
This story is about a boy who was adopted by his aunt and uncle after his parents died when he was young, and his growing awareness that he identifies as a female person.
There aren't many middle-grade books about this topic, and the treatment here is respectful and thoughtful. The family responses (reluctance, support, worry, protectivism, judgment) are well-handled. I wanted to see more about what happened after the book ended.
The best discussion questions, of course, are generated by and contemplated by readers. These questions are designed to avoid major spoilers about the book, and to provide a starting point for teachers, parents, and student reading groups.
