    This book, Alex Gino's sophomore effort, has a lesson or two to teach and it feels like it, especially at the beginning. That said, they are very important lessons - about white privilege, microaggressions, racism, ableism and assumptions. During the first part of the book, I confess t...

    (I read this ARC in exchange for an honest review. I discuss the content of the book, so my review contains spoilers.) As a writer, Alex Gino doesn?t know how to play it safe. In their debut middle grade (MG) novel, George, the protagonist is a transgender girl who wants to be Cha...

    This book, Alex Gino's sophomore effort, has a lesson or two to teach and it feels like it, especially at the beginning. That said, they are very important lessons - about white privilege, microaggressions, racism, ableism and assumptions. During the first part of the book, I confess t...
