GEORGE ALEX GINO
G E O R G E
When people look at George, they think they see a boy. But she knows she’s not a boy. She knows she’s a girl. George thinks she’ll have to keep this a secret forever. Then her teacher announces that their class play is going to be Charlotte’s Web. George really, really, REALLY wants to play Charlotte. But the teacher says she can’t even try out for the part . . . because she’s a boy. With the help of her best friend, Kelly, George comes up with a plan. Not just so she can be Charlotte — but so everyone can know who she is, once and for all.
I really enjoyed reading this fiction book, it should be book of the year.
This story is full of wonder, hope and the importance of getting to be who you are meant to be. The story of a very young boy George wanting to be a girl is deeply moving. George was extremely lucky he had a best friend Kelly who gave George the strength to be himself as a girl. This fiction story shows all what is going on Georges mind and what he goes through in school and at home as his mum has no idea George want to be a girl.. I give full praise to Alex Gino writing a fiction story about a sensitive subject.
I used to hang out with a boy when I was a child, he had operations in his teens to be a woman, but sadly he died in hospital through some complications with his operations to become a woman.
I watch a documentary TV series I am Jazz. The documentary is about Jazz who knew before she even went to school that she was not a boy she was a girl. Jazz’s parents helped Jazz become a girl at an extremely young age. Jazz has a book out too on this subject for school children.
