George knows she's a girl.
An elementary student, she was born a boy but can feel every fibre in her being that she was meant to be a girl.
Nobody knows this, not her mother, her brother or her best friend Kelly.
Then the school announces that they're going to be auditioning students for Charlotte's Web.
George knows that if she can get the part of Charlotte, the kind spider, people will finally see her for who she really is.
Before that can happen, though, she has to contend with bullies, her mum and a school administration that doesn't appear overly sympathetic.
This is a short but powerful read about standing up for who you are. It's also about the power of friendship and understanding. George is a tenacious character that will stick with you for a long time. Fans of Wonder will really love this!
I recommend George to Years 7 and up!
