If I Was Your Girl - Meredith Russo

Staff Pick

Amanda Hardy is the new girl in school and wants nothing more than to make friends and fit in. But she’s also keeping a secret, one that makes her afraid to get close to anyone: until three years ago, she used to be Andrew. Her plans to lie low are thwarted when she finds kindness in a group of girls— and when she meets a boy named Grant, their chemistry quickly blossoms into Amanda’s first love. Hesitant to tell them of her past, she eventually learns that sometimes, courage is the definition of being yourself. Alternating between the past and the present, Amanda’s honest narrative explains the pain and prejudice that transgendered people face. If I Was Your Girl (Flatiron, $17.99) by Meredith Russo is an important coming-of-age novel and a strong reminder that life can—and does—get better. Ages 14-18.
