Inspire empathy and compassion (and a few laughs!) in young readers with this stunning middle-grade novel. "My name is Liv (Not Olivia)... I'm not technically a girl. I'm transgender. Which is a bit like being a Transformer. Only not quite as cool because I probably won't get to save the world one day." Liv knows he was always meant to be a boy, but with his new school's terrible dress code, he can't even wear pants. Only skirts. Operation: Pants Project begins! The only way for Liv to get what he wants is to go after it himself. But to Liv, this isn't just a mission to change the policy-it's a mission to change his life. And that's a pretty big deal. Perfect for parents, educators, and librarians looking for a book for young readers that: Has a transgender main character with a humorous voice Is a hopeful, sweet story with a happily-ever-after ending Will prompt discussions on gender identity, bullying, self-esteem, empathy, acceptance, and social justice A 2018 Notable Social Studies Trade Books for Young People selection Amelia Bloomer Project nominee A 2020 Pacific Northwest Young Readers Choice Awards nominee

Great book! I’ve read George as well, I think it’s important to have books like these, for trans kids to tell them that they’re not weird, there’s a whole loving community of people like them, and it’s important for cis kids as well, to educate them about the troubles their peers may be having, and grow up to be great allies. And for that one person saying we’re “pushing this agenda to normalize homosexuality” picture being pointed at, mocked, abused, and murdered for being straight. You kiss someone of the opposite gender in public and have to be ready for the backlash. You wouldn’t enjoy that, would you? But you can’t help loving them. So, if you think we’re trying to push our gay agenda, stop pushing your straight one, let people be happy. Love is love.

What an amazing book. This is a great book for kids who maybe feel like they don't fit in with social norms. Liv is a great role model.
