BE WHO YOU ARE. 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.

"Everyone else thinks she's a boy, but 10-year-old George knows she's a girl. When her fourth-grade class puts on a play of CHARLOTTE'S WEB, what George wants more than anything is to play Charlotte. Narrator Jamie Clayton's voice is distinctive, though not necessarily young, but she infuses her delivery with a childlike enthusiasm that fits this middle-grade story. The fact that Clayton (from Netflix's "Sense8") is a transgender woman adds authenticity as George struggles with the choice to keep, or share, her secret. Occasional clunky writing doesn't detract from the importance of this book, which is sure to spark discussion, recognition, and understanding. Maybe most important of all, the book has plenty of heart, and listeners of all ages will be rooting for George the whole time. J.M.D. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
