about

A bright, bold debut about a girl who was born a boy, but refuses to let that stand in the way of her dream.

More than anything else, George wants to play Charlotte in her fourth-grade class's production of Charlotte's Web. The problem is, her teacher won't let her, because George is a boy. But George isn't about to let that squash her dream. With the help of her best friend, George must learn to stand up for her wish - and brave a few bullies along the way.

Transcending all categories and genres,George is a pertinent and poignant middle-grade read for kids of all backgrounds.

Alex Gino is a tutor and volunteer in LGBTQI centers in Oakland, California. George is his first novel.

Read from the Book

From George George reached the end of Charlotte's monologue and was ready for the dialogue with Wilbur that followed. But George didn't hear her cue. She opened her eyes. Ms. Udell was frowning, and a thick crease had formed across her forehead. "George, what was that?" she asked. "I . . . ," started George, but there were no words to finish the sentence. "I . . ." "Was that supposed to be some kind of joke? Because it wasn't very funny." "It wasn't a joke. I want to be Charlotte." George's voice sounded much smaller now that she was speaking her own words. "You know I can't very well cast you as Charlotte. I have too many girls who want the part. Besides, imagine how confused people would be. Now, if you're interested in being Wilbur, that's a possibility. Or maybe Templeton-he's a funny guy." "No, thanks. I just . . . I wanted . . ."

Editorial Reviews

Praise for George:"George's struggles are presented with a light, age-appropriate, and hopeful touch... Warm, funny, and inspiring." - Kirkus, starred review"Profound, moving, and-as Charlotte would say-radiant..." - Publishers Weekly, starred review"A required purchase for any collection that serves a middle grade population." - School Library Journal, starred review"Gino does an excellent job introducing factual information into the narrative without impinging upon the accessible and appealing story.. Pair this important addition to the slender but growing body of transgender fiction with Ami Polonsky's Gracefully Grayson (2014)." - Booklist, starred review"George is a timely book for parents to share and discuss with their children, whether dealing with similar issues or simply to foster understanding." - Entertainment Weekly"[I]nsightful.it'll resonate with anyone who has ever felt different." - People Magazine "People Picks: The Best New Books"
